The first examples of well-defined magnesium and zinc complexes bearing N,N′-chelated zwitterionic-type neutral amidinate or “NHC−CDI” adduct and terminal amido or alkyl ligands have been reported. The synthesis of these compounds was achieved by the direct treatment of metal bis(amide) or dialkyl with a NHC−CDI adduct in toluene at room temperature. A preliminary successful investigation of compound 1 catalyzing hydroboration of the aldehyde reaction suggests that these metal complexes act as important starting materials and (pre)catalysts in group 2 and 12 chemistry.
