Abstract

Polymer supported lithium and sodium naphthalenide complexes are prepared from the reaction of THF solutions of lithium and sodium biphenylide with polystyrene bearing -CH2SiMe2(1-C10H7) groups, generating highly coloured paramagnetic material, which afford lithium and sodium reagents in high yield when treated with organic halides, nitriles and phosphates.
