Abstract

Benzene can be easily 1,4-dideprotonated stoichiometrically on reaction with two equivalents of a synergic mixture of tBu2Zn, NaTMP and TMEDA to give a unique 1,4-dizincated benzene product which has been characterised by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy as well as modelled theoretically by DFT computational studies; a related synergic dimagnesiation of benzene is also reported.
