Dalton Trans. 2016 Nov 30. [Epub ahead of print]Compounds consisting of [M(1,2-disila-[3n]crown-n)]2+ (M = Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba; n = 5, 6) and [Ba(1,2-disila-benzocrown-6)]2+ cations and different anions were obtained by equimolar reaction of the hybrid disila-crown ethers 1,2-disilacrown-5 (1), 1,2-disilacrown-6 (2) and 1,2-disila-benzocrown-6 (7) with alkaline earth metal salts. Even with strongly coordinating anions such as Br- or I- stable complexes could be obtained, showing the good coordination ability of these ligands. Read More
