catena-Poly[sodium-[mu]2-(N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethane-1,2-diamine)-[kappa]2N:N'-sodium-bis[[mu]2-bis(trimethylsilyl)azanido-[kappa]2N:N]]

Abstract: The title compound, [Na2(C6H18NSi2)2(C6H16N2)]n, was found to consist of dimeric [Na(NSiMe3)2] units with crystallographically imposed centrosymmetry based upon four-membered NaNNaN rings. The dimers are bridged by N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine ligands, which act in an unusual extended non-chelating coordination mode. This gives a one-dimensional coordination polymer that extends parallel to the a-axis direction.
