AbstractThree new structurally varied alkylzinc derivatives of 3,5-diphenylpyrazole with different coordination modes of pyrazolate ligands were synthesized and structurally characterized. The observed aggregation mode of the original trimeric aggregate [tBuZn(pzPh2)]3 is entirely different from the commonly anticipated ring-stacking and ring-laddering principle for the related compounds, thus providing a new look at the aggregation and stabilization of alkylzinc species. The reaction of R2Zn (R = Et, tBu) with 3,5-diphenylpyrazole results in the formation of three structurally diverse alkylzinc pyrazolates: a novel dinuclear tetrahydrofuran solvate, an unprecedented trimeric structure, and a spiro trinuclear aggregate. Structural analysis of the resulting complexes provides a new look at the aggregation and stabilization of alkylzinc species.
