Unlike mercury, which has an extensive +1 oxidation state chemistry, zinc usually adopts the +2 oxidation state. Decamethyldizincocene, Zn2(η5-C5Me5)2, an organometallic compound of Zn(I) formally derived from the dimetallic [Zn–Zn]2+ unit, has been isolated from the low-temperature (–10°C) reaction of Zn(C5Me5)2 and Zn(C2H5)2 in diethyl ether. X-ray studies show that it contains two eclipsed Zn(η5-C5Me5) fragments with a Zn–Zn distance (± standard deviation) of 2.305(±3) angstroms, indicative… 
Synthesis, molecular and electronic structure, and reactions of a Zn-Hg-Zn bonded complex.
DFT and QTAIM analyses suggest that 1 is best described as two formally Zn(I) atoms with a Hg(0) atom positioned between them.
Zinc-zinc bonded decamethyldizincocene Zn2(η(5)-C5Me5)2 as catalyst for the inter- and intramolecular hydroamination reaction.
The Zn-Zn bonded compound [(η(5)-Cp*)(2)Zn(2)] was investigated as catalyst for the inter- and intramolecular hydroamination reaction. High reaction rates under mild conditions were observed. This is
Reactions of a Zn(I) complex with group 14 azides--formation of zinc azide and zinc hexazene complexes.
Two zinc hexazene complexes L2Zn2(l-1,6-R2-N6) (L = HC[C(Me)N-(2,4,6-Me3C6H2)]2; R = Ph (3), Dipp = 2,6-i-Pr2C6H3 (4)), were synthesized by reaction of the Zn(I) complex L2Zn2 (1) with phenyl azide
A new zinc–zinc-bonded compound with a dianionic α-diimine ligand: synthesis and structure of [Na(THF)2]2·[LZn–ZnL] (L = [(2,6-iPr2C6H3)N(Me)C]22−)
The synthesis and structure of a Zn–Zn-bonded compound supported by a doubly reduced α-diimine ligand, [Na(THF)2]2·[LZn–ZnL] (L = [(2,6-iPr2C6H3)N(Me)C]22−) are reported, with a Zn–Zn bond length of
Synthesis, reactivity and applications of zinc-zinc bonded complexes.
The potential capability of [Zn(2)(η(5)-Cp*)(2)] to serve as a suitable catalyst in hydroamination reactions was demonstrated and the recent work on Cd-Cd bonded coordination compounds is reviewed.
Synthesis and Structure of Half-Sandwich Zincocenes†
Half-sandwich zinc complexes (η5-C5Me5)ZnR have been prepared for R= Me, 2; Et, 3; Mes, 4 and Ph, 5, by the conproportionation reaction of Zn(C5Me5)2 and the corresponding ZnR2 reagent. The new
Insertion Reactions of Heterocumulenes with Zincocene Cp*2Zn †‡
Zincocene Cp*2Zn reacts with carbodiimides C(NR)2 with insertion into the Zn–Cp* bond and formation of [(Cp*C(NR)2]2Zn [R = Et (1), iPr (2), Cy (3)]. In addition, the reaction of Cp*2Zn with CS2
A solvated zinc analogue of the calomel-dication.
The synthesis and characterisation of the solvent-stabilized salt [Zn2(THF)6](2+)[BAr4(F)]2(-) (1) is presented, which features the dizinc dication [Zn2](2+) as an analogue of the calomel dication
Theory-guided experiments on the mechanistic elucidation of the reduction of dinuclear zinc, manganese, and cadmium complexes.
This work turned its attention from zinc to manganese and cadmium, because they not only show structural similarity in the reported M M-bonded dinuclear complexes, but also feature an identical M M s-bonding scheme.
Synthesis and Characterization of β-Diketiminate Zinc Complexes†
Reactions of the monomeric β-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


Chemical formation of mononuclear univalent zinc in a microporous crystalline silicoaluminophosphate.
The magnetic moments of the univalent zinc in SAPO-CHA interact antiferromagnetically at low temperatures with a Néel point of about 4 K as observed from the temperature dependence plot of the magnetic susceptibility of the host-guest compound.
