ABSTRACT The synthesis and full characterisation of trans-[PtCl(PCy(3))(2){BiCl(2)}] is reported via the oxidative addition of the bismuth-chloride bond across [Pt(PCy(3))(2)]; this represents the first instance of such an oxidative addition reaction to be undertaken by a bismuth halide bond.

    ABSTRACT: Binuclear oxidative addn. of Sb-Cl bonds with the clusters Os3(CO)11(NCCH3), 1, or Os3(CO)10(NCCH3)2, 2, was an effective synthetic route to organometallic clusters and rings contg. μ2-SbPh2 or μ3-SbPh moieties. Thus, the reaction of SbPh2Cl with 1 afforded the tetranuclear ring Os3(CO)11(Cl)(μ-SbPh2), 3, while its reaction with 2 afforded the pentanuclear ring Os3(CO)10(Cl)2(μ-SbPh2)2, 6. In each case, two or three isomeric products were isolated depending on the reaction conditions. The analogous reaction of SbPhCl2 with 1, on the other hand, afforded the spiked triangular cluster Os3(CO)11(Cl)2(μ3-SbPh), 7, which also existed as two isomers. Pathways for these reactions have been proposed, and the exptl. and computational evidence presented. [on SciFinder(R)]

    ABSTRACT: The synthesis and characterization of substituted benzimidazolin-2-selones (4c–4d) and -tellone (4i) are reported. Upon reaction with halogens (I2, Br2, and Cl2), these selones and tellone yield dihaloselones/tellone (5c–5i). The reaction of dihaloselones with elemental tellurium/tin/bismuth leads to the formation of selone-coordinated monomeric tellurium tetrahalides, tellurium dibromide (8), tin tetrahalides, and bismuth triiodide adducts (7a–7g), respectively. The structures of the tellurium tetrahalide (7a, 7d, and 7g), tellurium dibromide (8), tin tetrahalide, and bismuth triiodide adducts have been established by single-crystal X-ray analysis. The bismuth triiodide adduct is the first neutral tetrameric structure with selones. The bismuth adduct has been used as a single-source precursor for the synthesis of bismuth selenide (Bi2Se3) nanoparticles, which were characterized by powder XRD patterns. The TEM images show the hexagonal shape of the nanoparticles.

    ABSTRACT: The complexes [PtMe2((t)Bu(2)bpy)], 1a, (t)Bu(2)bpy = 4,4'-di-tert butyl-2,2'-bipyridine, and [PtMe(ppy)PPh3], 1b, ppy = deprotonated 2-phenylpyridine, react very easily with BiX3 (X = Cl, Br, or I) to give [PtMe2(X)(2) ((t)Bu(2)bpy)] (2a, X = Cl; 3a, X = Br; 4a, X = I) and [PtMe(X)(2)(ppy)PPh3] (2b, X = Cl; 3b, X = Br; 4b, X = I), respectively. In these oxidative addition reactions, BiX3 reagent can be used as halide source instead of hazardous reagents X-2. The dihaloplatinum(IV) complexes are characterized using NMR spectroscopy and the structures of complexes 4a and 3b are further identified by X-ray crystallography. Structures of Pt(IV) complexes are investigated using DFT calculations at B3LYP level of theory.
