Abstract

The reaction of Ln[N(SiMe3)2]3· [LiCl(THF)3]x (Ln = Yb and Er) with N-confused tetraphenylporphyrin (H2NCTPP) followed by Na(LOMe) (LOMe = (η5-C5H5)Co[P(=O)(OMe) 2]) gives (NCTPP)Ln(LOMe), whose X-ray structures exhibit an η2 agostic interaction between the metal centre and the inner C-H bond of the NCTPP ligand.
