Four novel triarylbismuth(V) di(N-salicylidene)amino carboxylates were synthesized. Their structures were confirmed by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and elemental analysis. The crystal structure of (2-HOC6H4CHNCH2CO2)2BiPh3 was determined by X-ray diffraction. The in vitro cytotoxicity of all compounds against three human cancer cells (HL-60, BGC-823 and MDA-MB-435) at 10 µM are reported. Copyright © 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    ABSTRACT: Stressing bismuth: Two monophenyl tetrathiolato Bi(V) complexes, [BiPh(SR)4 ], have been prepared upon treating BiPh3 in toluene/ethanol under reflux conditions with an excess of N-heterocyclic thiols, indicating oxidation of the bismuth center. Crystallization from DMSO over several months leads to reduction of bismuth back to Bi(III) through protonation of two of the thiolato ligands.

    ABSTRACT: Tri-m-tolylbismuth bis(2-methoxybenzoate) (I) (84%), tri-m-tolylbismuth dibenzoate (II) (91%), and tri-m-tolylbismuth bis(trichloroacetate) (III) (92%) have been synthesized via the reaction between tri-m-tolylbismuth, carboxylic acid, and hydrogen peroxide. According to X-ray diffraction data, a bismuth atom in compounds I–III have a distorted trigonal bipyramidal coordination (disregarding the additional coordination of carbonyl oxygen atoms) to m-tolyl ligands in equatorial positions. The Bi-C bonds in compounds I, II, and III range within 2.193(3)–2.228(5) Å, and the Bi-O and Bi…O(=C) distances are 2.267(3), 2.282(3) Å and 2.791(6), 2.895(6) Å in I; 2.293(2), 2.296(3) Å and 2.815, 2.905(5) Å in II; and 2.278(4), 2.300(4) Å and 3.008(9), 3.115(9) Å in III. The equatorial CBiC angles on the side of Bi…O(=C) contacts are considerably enlarged, thus decreasing the other two angles (150.6°, 104.7°, and 104.7° in I, 140.2°, 107.4°, and 112.3° in II, and 138.0°, 110.1°, and 111.0° in III).
