The study of co-complexation reactions between NaCH2SiMe3 and Mg(CH2SiMe3)(2) has allowed the isolation and structural elucidation of the first solvent-free alkali-metal alkylmagnesiate [{NaMg(CH2SiMe3)(3)}(infinity)] (1) as well as the related solvent-free sodium alkyl [{(NaCH2SiMe3)(4)}(infinity)] (3).
