Reactions of the monomeric -diketiminate zinc complex MesNacNacZnMe (MesNacNac = {[2,6-(2,4,6-Me3-C6H2)-N(Me)C)]2CH}) with ROH (R = Me, Et, iPr) yielded the corresponding zinc alkoxides [MesNacNacZnOR]2 (R = Me 1, Et 2, iPr 3). In addition, the reaction of MesNacNacZnCl with various reducing agents such as potassium graphite, potassium, or sodium gave the ZnII complex [MesNacNac]2Zn 4. Compounds 1-4were characterized by elemental analyses, mass and multinuclear (1H, 13C{1H}) NMR spectroscopy, and by single-crystal X-ray analysis.
