When the important utility amide sodium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide is combined with hydrocarbon-soluble molecular forms of sodium halide salts, a complex structural chemistry is observed. Through utilization of several different multidentate donor molecules, it is possible to isolate a series of compounds that have structural motifs previously not observed in sodium chemistry.
