Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two magnesium complexes of the 6-aminofulvene-2-aldimine (AFA) system bearing cyclohexyl groups on the donor nitrogen atoms have been synthesised; in the first the ligand is coordinated via the two nitrogen donors while in the second it is found to ligate magnesium via the cyclopentadienyl and the imine donors.
