Inorg Chem. 2016 Dec 19;55(24):12997-13006. Epub 2016 Dec 1.The reactivity of the molecular magnesium hydride [Mg(Me3TACD·AliBu3)H] (1) featuring a terminal magnesium-hydrogen bond and an NNNN-type macrocyclic ligand, Me3TACD ((Me3TACD)H = Me3aneN4 = 1,4,7-trimethyl-1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane), can be grouped into protonolysis, oxidation, hydrometalation, (insertion), and hydride ion. Protonolysis of 1 with weak Brønsted acids HX such as terminal acetylenes, amines, silanols, and silanes gave the corresponding derivatives [Mg(Me3TACD·AliBu3)X] (X = C≡CPh, 3; HN(3,5-Me2-C6H3), 4; OSiMe3, 5; OSiPh3, 6; Cl, 7; Br, 8).
