Heteroleptic ate complexes of the type K[M{N(SiMe3)2}2{OSi(OtBu)3}] (M = Cr, Mn, Co) were synthesized by adding one equivalent of the potassium salt KOSi(OtBu)3 to the bis(trimethylsilyl)amide precursors [Cr{N(SiMe3)2}2(thf)2], [Mn{N(SiMe3)2}2(thf)] and [Co{N(SiMe3)2}2(thf)], respectively. Surprisingly, the reaction of CrCl3(thf)3 with only two equivalents of KOSi(OtBu)3 yielded the homoleptic ate complex K[Cr{OSi(OtBu)3}4]. The compounds were characterized by elemental analysis and DRIFT spectroscopy as well as X-ray crystallography.
