Crystalline [Mg(CH2SiMe3)(µ3-OCH2SiMe3)]4 has been identified as the product of oxidation of ClMgCH2SiMe3 with traces of O2. Its formation requires the formation of Mg(CH2SiMe3)2 via the Schlenk equilibrium. The compound is a rare example of a structurally characterized magnesium alkyl alkoxide with Mg4O4 cubane structure.
