Abstract

A side reaction leads to the product. In the synthesis of [{Be(SPh)2(py)(NH3)}2{[18]crown-6}] (1, py = pyridine) from [Be{N(SiMe3)2}2] and HSPh, the coordinated ammonia molecules (see the structure of 1 in the picture) are formed in a competing reaction between liberated hexamethyldisilazane and the thiol.
