Serendipitous deprotonation of bis(iminophosphoranyl) methanide Nd(III) complexes afforded the first alkyl-carbene neodymium complex. Due to the presence of structurally similar methanide and methandiide fragments, this complex features, as evidenced by X-ray crystallographic analysis, Nd-C single and multiple bonds.
