This manuscript advances alkali metal chemistry of the trans-calixbenzenepyrrolidide ligand showing a remarkable structural diversity. These novel complexes can be consider very important as alkali metal ligand transfer agents for organoactinide and organolanthaide chemistry. All complexes have been characterized by X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis.
1. General procedures
2. NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis
3. X-Ray crystallographic structures
4. CIF for the crystallographic structures
Please, note that to view the cif files it is necessary to use a graphical program which can open crystallography files (programs such as Mercury, ORTEP-3, etc).
