Direct zincation of ferrocene and ruthenocene by the synergic base [PMDETA center dot K(mu-TMP)(mu-Me)Zn(Me)] produces the monozincated complexes [{PMDETA center dot K(mu-Me)(2)Zn(Fc)}(infinity)] and [{PMDETA center dot K(mu-Me)(2)Zn(Rc)}(2)], respectively, having similar monomeric (dinuclear) units but aggregating supramolecularly in very different polymeric and dimeric forms.
