Abstract

A family of magnesium acetylides was prepared by treating Bu2Mg with two equivalents of various alkyne ligands in the presence of different donors. The resulting complexes were examined for the influence of ligand and donors on the spectroscopic and structural properties of the target compounds. The magnesium complexes are compared to the heavier alkaline earth metal analogs.
