Abstract

Direct reaction between magnesium and 1-methoxy-2-propanol yielded the title complex which has been characterized by X-ray crystallography. The molecular structure consists of a centrosymmetric tetrameric unit in which the Mg atoms are five-or six-coordinated by terminal, triple- and double-bridging chelating alkoxo ligands.
