Reactions of Zr{Al(OPri)4}2Cl2 or Zr{Nb(OPri)6}2Cl2 with KNb(OPri)6/KAl(OPri)4 and diethanolamines RN(CH2CH2OH)2 [R=H(LHH2), Me(LMeH2), and Ph(LPhH2)] in the presence of two equivalents of Et3N yield interesting hetero(bi- and tri-) nuclear derivatives (1)–(8) All of these new derivatives have been characterized by elemental analyses, molecular weight measurements, and spectroscopic studies.
