Abstract

Subjecting furan to sodium-mediated magnesiation via the new heteroleptic alkyl-amido reagent [(TMEDA)·Na(CH2SiMe3)(TMP)Mg(TMP)] produces the remarkable dodecasodium-hexamagnesium molecule [{(TMEDA)3Na6Mg3(CH2SiMe3)(2,5-C4H2O)3(2-C4H3O)5}2], built upon a bridge network of 10 monodeprotonated and 6 twofold-deprotonated furan ligands
