Abstract

Reduction of cis-ethene-1,2-di(tert-butylamido)-gallium(III) chloride with metallic potassium in the presence of N,N,N′,N′- tetramethylethylenediamine gives the title compound which has a novel dimeric structure with the potassium cations η5-coordinated to the pseudocarbene ring system of one monomer and η1-bonded to the gallium atom of the other.
