Reaction of the bisamidinate zinc complex [tBuC(NiPr)2]2Zn (1) with ZnMe2 yielded the corresponding monoamidinate zinc complex {[tBuC(NiPr)2]ZnMe}2 (2). Complex 2 reacts with iodine with formation of {[tBuC(NiPr)2]ZnI}2 (3). Compounds 2 and 3 both adopt dimeric structures in the solid state as was shown by single-crystal X-ray analyses. 2 and 3 were characterized by elemental analyses, mass and multinuclear (1H, 13C{1H}) NMR spectroscopy (1H, 13C). In addition, X-ray crystal structures of 1-3 are reported.
