Abstract

The reaction of the lithium amide, [2-(6-methyl)pyridyl]trimethylsilylamido-lithium, with antimony(III) or bismuth(III) trichloride in diethyl ether gives the bis-amido antimony(III) or bismuth(III) chloride [{2-(6-Me)C5H3N} NSiMe3]MCl, [M =Sb (1) or Bi (2)] as colourless or yellow prisms respectively. The antimony complex is monomeric in the solid state whereas the bismuth complex is dimeric with bridging chlorides.
