ABSTRACT A new organic-inorganic hybrid salt [TM-TTF][Cr(NCS)(4)(isoquinoline)(2)] (1) (TM-TTF = Tetramethyltetrathiafulvalene) has been synthesized. Compound 1 crystallizes in the triclinic P space group with a = 8.269(1), b = 10.211(2), and c = 11.176(2) A, alpha = 89.244(9), beta = 88.114(6), and gamma = 74.277(7) degrees, V = 907.6(3) A(3), and Z = 1. The crystal structure was resolved in the temperature range between 223 and 123 K, showing that changes in the crystal structure at low temperature result in stronger interactions between anions and cations. The packing of 1 consists of mixed anion-cation layers in the bc plane containing S.S and pi-pi anion-cation interactions, the layers being connected by very short S.S contacts between anions and cations. Magnetic measurements in a small external field show bulk spontaneous magnetization with a T(c) of 6.6 K consistent with the presence of weakly coupled ferrimagnetic order in compound 1. The EPR measurements also demonstrate the interaction between the d and pi electrons and the presence of an internal magnetic field brought about by the magnetic ordering.

    ABSTRACT: A charge-transfer compound [(CH3)3CNH3]3[PMo12O40] · 2H2O was synthesized and characterized by IR, UV, ESR, diffusion reflectance electronic spectrum, cyclic voltammogram and X-ray crystallography. Oxygen atoms of the polyoxometalate anion, N atoms of organic substrates (CH3)3CNH2 and O atoms of water molecules are involved in hydrogen bonding. The solid reflectance electronic spectra and IR data indicate the presence of interaction between the [PMo12O40]3− and the organic substrates in the solid state. Photosensitivity to ultraviolet light was assessed for the compound, showing that charge-transfer resulted from oxidation of the organic substrates and the reduction of the heteropolyanion.

    ABSTRACT: The synthesis and single crystal X-ray structure of trans-[HNC6H7][Cr(NCS)4(NC6H7)2] (1) and mer-[Cr(NCS)3(NC6H7)3] (2) are reported. Compound 1 was synthesized by refluxing chromium powder and thiourea in 4-methylpyridine. The isothiocyanate ligand is believed to be generated from the isomerization of thiourea to ammonium thiocyanate during synthesis. Compound 2 was prepared from CrCl3 and KSCN in 4-methylpyridine. The reaction conditions for both compounds yielded a mixture of [Cr(NCS)x(NC6H7)6−x]3−x isomers (x=0–6), which were analyzed by HPLC. The thermal properties of trans-[HNC6H7][Cr(NCS)4(NC6H7)2] were analyzed by thermogravimetric analysis/differential scanning calorimetry–mass spectroscopy (TGA/DSC–MS), and the compound was found to oxidize to CrO2 in three major weight loss steps when heated to 1000°C in dry air.

    ABSTRACT: The crystal structure of the title compound, C7H7F3N+·C8H3Cl2O4−, is stabilized by five N—H...O, one O—H...O, two C—H...O and three C—H...X (X = F, Cl) hydrogen bonds. Intramolecular O—H...O and C—H...X hydrogen bonds generate edge-fused [S(7)R44(24)S(7)R22(10)S(7)R44(24)S(7)] motifs. The cations and anions are linked to each other by C—H...O hydrogen bonds, forming a chain along the c axis. This chain and the other hydrogen bonds form [R32(6)R12(4)S(7)R12(4)R44(18)R55(24)R44(18)R12(4)R12(4)S(7)R12(4)R32(6)] motifs. The dihedral angle between the planes of the aromatic rings in the cation and anion is 34.86 (1)°.
