Abstract

A beta-SiH functionalized benzyl anion [C(SiHMe2)(2)Ph](-) is obtained by deprotonation of HC(SiHMe2)(2)Ph with KCH2Ph or by reaction of KOtBu and (Me2HSi)(3)CPh; LnI(3)(THF)(n) and three equivalents of this carbanion combine to provide homoleptic tris(alkyl) lanthanide compounds Ln{C(SiHMe2)(2)Ph}(3) (Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd) containing secondary metal-ligand interactions.
