We have prepared and structurally characterized several complexes of chromium coordinated by diimine (or 1,4-diazadiene) ligands, that is, Ar-N=C(R)-(R)C=N-Ar (RL(Ar)) (where Ar = 2,6-diisopropylphenyl ("iPr") or 2,6-dimethylphenyl ("Me") and R = H or Me). The reaction of CrCl2 with HLiPr gave dinuclear [(HLiPr)Cr]2(mu-Cl)3(Cl)(THF) when isolated from Et2O; in THF solution, however, the product exists as mononuclear (HLiPr)CrCl2(THF)2. Two isostructural derivatives, (MeLMe)CrCl2(THF)2 and (HL… Expand
