Mg­(mesC­{NCy}2)­(N­{SiMe3}2)­(THF) is a (pre)­catalyst for C–C bond formation. Attempted isolation of intermediates in a proposed catalytic cycle was hindered by facile ligand redistribution. A subsequent investigation of commercially available organo- or amidomagnesium­(II) compounds (including Grignard reagents) demonstrated similar catalytic behavior.
