Abstract:
Despite the well-established use of organomagnesium reagents, research into the chemistry of the alkaline earth metals has received an increase in popularity over the last two decades, largely due to their applications as reagents and catalysts. Recently, sterically-demanding A-donor ligands have become more popular because of their ability to provide stable metal-donor interactions and achieve kinetic stabilisation of the complex by crowding the metal centre. Furthermore, the isolation of subvalent magnesium and calcium complexes which challenged established knowledge of the metals prompted further investigations into their stabilisation in low oxidation states.
