    ABSTRACT: The synthesis, structure, and conformational behaviour of three imidazolium cyclophanes that incorporate one or two 4-tert-butylphenol or 4-tert-butylanisole groups as meta-disubstituted linkers in the macrocycle is described. The cyclophanes containing anisole moieties adopt a cone conformation in the solid state, which, in solution, is not labile on the NMR timescale. The cyclophanes containing one or two phenol moieties adopt conformations other than the cone in the solid state and are labile in solution on the NMR timescale. The phenol cyclophanes are readily deprotonated, and structural and conformational studies for a variety of the associated cyclophanes are also reported.

    ABSTRACT: Palladium complexes of new bidentate N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) incorporating benzimidazolin-2-ylidene units have been synthesized and structurally and spectroscopically characterised. The NHC ligands are furnished with aryl substituents on the nitrogen atoms and electron-donating butoxy groups on the benzo-fused ring. The incorporation of these aryl substituents on the bis(NHC) ligands leads to interesting and unexpected conformations around the palladium atoms, and interesting reactivity, including cyclometallation and the formation of a tri-nuclear species. One of the complexes has been studied in an initial series of Mizoroki-Heck and Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions but shows moderate to poor activity.

    ABSTRACT: A number of group 11 salts, [MX] (M = Ag, X- = -O3SCF3, -O2CCF3, BF4-; M = Cu; X = Cl, Br) and [Cu(MeCN)4][PF6], were found to react in varying stoichiometries with ethyne-1,2-diyl compounds, [{Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-C≡C)] (R = H, Me), to give a number of complex cations. The trication salts [Ag3({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4Me)}2(μ2-η1:η1-C≡C))3](O3SCF3)3, [Ag3({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-η1:η1-C≡C))({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-η1:η2-C≡C))2](BF4)3, and [Cu3({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-η1:η2-C≡C))({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-η2-C≡C))](PF6)3 result from the use of the respective anion salts in their syntheses. Coordination of Ag+ by the ethyne-1,2-diyl complexes in the presence of F3CCO2- yields the tetranuclear complexes [Ag4({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-η2-C≡C))2](μ2-O2CCF3)4 (R = H, Me). The reaction of CuCl does not afford the discrete dimeric complexes normally observed for internal alkynes and metal alkynyl complexes but, rather, the 1-D polymer [Cu2(μ-Cl)2({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(η2-C≡C))](∞|∞), while CuBr gives the discrete dimer motif known in the literature. The solution structures at 1/2, 1/1, and 2/1 stoichiometries of Ag+/[{Ru(CO)2(η-C5H5)}2(μ2-C≡C)] have been probed spectroscopically, and the {Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)} environments appear to be equivalent and, likewise, the resonances attributable to their C≡C units. In a subsequent reaction of [{Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-C≡C)] and AgBF4 use of a strict Ag+/ethyne-1,2-diyl ratio gave [Ag({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H5)}2(η2-C≡C))2](BF4). The analogous Cu+ adduct [Cu({Ru(CO)2(η-C5H5)}2(η2-C≡C))2](PF6) is observed, along with the tricopper(I) adduct from the reaction of [{Ru(CO)2(η-C5H4R)}2(μ2-C≡C)] and [Cu(NCMe)4](PF6). A combination of factors appears to control the solid-state structures of these coinage metal adducts, with the anion found to be that which influences the packing to the greatest extent.

    ABSTRACT: The synthesis of a C 4 dissymmetric resorcinarene tetracarboxylic acid derivative and determination of its critical micelle concentration is reported. The tetrahydroxy derivative was prepared by reduction of the tetra-acid. The low-temperature single crystal X-ray structure of the methyl ester derivative of the tetra-acid is also reported. This crystallised with two independent molecules of similar boat (flattened cone) conformation within the asymmetric unit.

    ABSTRACT: Reaction of mercuric acetate with an imidazolium-linked cyclophane incorporating 2,6-phenolic moieties results in formation of an interesting new N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complex of mercury. The new complex is cationic and binuclear, incorporating two mercury centres and two bis(NHC) ligands, each mercury atom being bound by two NHC moieties and two phenol/phenoxy moieties. Forms of the complex having coordinating ( \( {\text{HgBr}}_{4}^{2 - } \) ) and non-coordinating ( \( {\text{PF}}_{6}^{ - } \) ) counterions have been structurally characterised.

    ABSTRACT: A novel dinuclear ruthenium(II) complex containing two ortho-xylylene-linked bis(NHC) ligands (NHC = N-heterocyclic carbene) has been synthesized via transmetalation from a silver-NHC complex. Each ruthenium atom in the dinuclear complex is chelated through the two carbene carbon atoms and, unusually, an η2-bound xylylene ring, two separate bis(NHC) units being linked by a Ru(μ-Cl)3Ru core. The same bis(NHC) ligand has yielded a neutral tetranuclear 4:2 AgBr:bis(NHC) complex, where ligand steric constraints seemingly inhibit formation of structures derivative of the more familiar “cubane” or “step” forms, resulting in an interesting new structural type.

    ABSTRACT: Herein we report the first synthesis of 1,5- di-(ethylphenyl)-1,5-dimethyl-3,3,7,7-tetraphenylcyclotetrasiloxane using a new ‘One Pot’ procedure as recently reported for the preparation of strictly alternating 1,1,5,5-tetramethyl-3,3,7,7-tetraphenylcyclotetrasiloxane by the heterofunctional condensation of diphenylsilanediol with (phenylethyl)methyldichlorosilane in the presence of the ter tiary amine, triethylamine (Nguyen et al. Silicon 6:21-26 2014). The prepared 1,5-di-(ethylphenyl)-1,5-dimethyl-3,3,7,7-tetraphenylcyclotetrasi loxane was fully characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, 1H, 13C and 29Si nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, elemental analysis, mass spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calori metric studies.

    ABSTRACT: The characterisation, by a single-crystal X-ray study at ,150 K, of brown acicular crystals of barium(II) bis(dioxova-nadium(V)) bis(selenite(IV)) monohydrate, BaSe 2 V 2 O 10 ÁH 2 O, obtained as a minor product of the synthesis of the previously reported 'Ba(VO) 2 (SeO 3) 2 (HSeO 3) 2 ', is recorded. Crystals are monoclinic, P2 1 /c, a ¼ 10.803(2), b ¼ 5.1126(8), c ¼ 17.905(3) Å , b ¼ 92.048(2)8, V ¼ 988.3(3) Å 3 , 2456 independent diffractometer reflections refining to R1 ¼ 0.032, wR2 ¼ 0.084. A single BaV 2 Se 2 O 11 H 2 formula unit, devoid of crystallographic symmetry, comprises the asymmetric unit of the structure, which is a three-dimensional polymer, with component sheets parallel to the crystallographic b axis, containing pentavalent vanadium atoms, one five-, the other six-coordinate, linked by selenite pyramids.

    ABSTRACT: Single crystal X-ray structure determinations are recorded for dipheny1(2-formylphenyl)phosphine gold(I) halides [Ph-2(Ph-CHO)PAuXI, X = Cl, Br and I, and for redeterminations of enhanced precision for triphenylphosphine gold(I) halides [Ph3PAuX], X = Cl, Br, I, and SCNo.siBro,os. These complexes, other than [Ph2(Ph-CHO)PAuCl], together with a diverse array of other structures, crystallize as an isomorphous series in the orthorhombic space group P212121 a = 9.804(1)-11.906(3), b = 11.771(2)-12.996(3) and c= 12.871(1)-14.169(3) A. In these complexes, introduction of the formyl group results in only minor differences between the conformations of the two phosphine ligands and the corresponding Au-P, Au-X, and Au-P-X bond lengths and angles. The crystal packings of [Ph3PALIXI for X = Cl, Br, I and of [Ph2(Ph-CHO)PAuX] for X = Br and I show that, while these structures are isomorphous, different supramolecular synthons may be present, suggesting global packing considerations are all-important rather than specific supramolecular interactions. This is borne out by the different packing found for the centrosymmetric [Ph2(Ph-CHO)PAuCl] structure. Crystallization of the mixed anion structure [Ph3PAuSCN0.s1Bro.09] in the above P212121 lattice rather than the P21/c lattice reported for pure [Ph3PAuSCH] suggests that co-crystallization with bromide may impose constraints on packing considerations which favor crystallization in the P212121 lattice.

    ABSTRACT: [RuCl(arene)(μ-Cl)]2 dimers were treated in a 1:2 molar ratio with sodium or thallium salts of bis- and tris(pyrazolyl)borate ligands [Na(Bp)], [Tl(Tp)], and [Tl(TpiPr, 4Br)]. Mononuclear neutral complexes [RuCl(arene)(κ2-Bp)] (1: arene=p-cymene (cym); 2: arene=hexamethylbenzene (hmb); 3: arene=benzene (bz)), [RuCl(arene)(κ2-Tp)] (4: arene=cym; 6: arene=bz), and [RuCl(arene)(κ2-TpiPr, 4Br)] (7: arene=cym, 8: arene=hmb, 9: arene=bz) have been always obtained with the exception of the ionic [Ru2(hmb)2(μ-Cl)3][Tp] (5′), which formed independently of the ratio of reactants and reaction conditions employed. The ionic [Ru(CH3OH)(cym)(κ2-Bp)][X] (10: X=PF6, 12: X=O3SCF3) and the neutral [Ru(O2CCF3)(cym)(κ2-Bp)] (11) have been obtained by a metathesis reaction with corresponding silver salts. All complexes 1–12 have been characterized by analytical and spectroscopic data (IR, ESI-MS, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy). The structures of the thallium and calcium derivatives of ligand Tp, [Tl(Tp)] and [Ca(dmso)6][Tp]2⋅2 DMSO, of the complexes 1, 4, 5′, 6, 11, and of the decomposition product [RuCl(cym)(HpziPr, 4Br)2][Cl] (7′) have been confirmed by using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Electrochemical studies showed that 1–9 and 11 undergo a single-electron RuIIRuIII oxidation at a potential, measured by cyclic voltammetry, which allows comparison of the electron-donor characters of the bis- and tris(pyrazol-1-yl)borate and arene ligands, and to estimate, for the first time, the values of the Lever EL ligand parameter for Bp, Tp, and TpiPr, 4Br. Theoretical calculations at the DFT level indicated that both oxidation and reduction of the Ru complexes under study are mostly metal-centered with some involvement of the chloride ligand in the former case, and also demonstrated that the experimental isolation of the μ3-binuclear complex 5′ (instead of the mononuclear 5) is accounted for by the low thermodynamic stability of the latter species due to steric reasons.

    ABSTRACT: Six scorpionate complexes of group 10–12 metal elements (CuI, CuII, ZnII, and CdII) containing the anionic hydrotris[3-(2′-thienyl)pyrazol-1-yl]borate (TpTn) ligand were prepared from the reaction of the thallium(I) salt of TpTn with the corresponding metal acceptors in chloroform solution. The air- and heat-stable complexes were characterized by analytical and spectroscopic methods (IR, conductivity, ESI-MS, 1H NMR and 13C NMR solution data) and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray studies. The ZnII complexes [Zn(TpTn)X] (X = Cl or Br) contain a tripodal tridentate TpTn ligand, in which the tetrahedral metal environment is completed by a halide; in [Cd(TpTn)2], cadmium is found in an octahedral environment coordinated by two TpTn ligands. In [Cu(TpTn)(PPh3)]·CHCl3 and [Cu(TpTn)(OC(O)CH3)], TpTn is also coordinated in the tripodal fashion, in which the copper environment is completed by a triphenylphosphine ligand in the former complex and by a symmetrically coordinated bidentate acetate ligand occupying trans-coordinated sites in the latter complex. The reaction of [Zn(TpTn)X] with an excess amount of [Tl(TpTn)] in MeOH yielded [Zn(TpTn)2] and TlX, whereas the reaction of [Zn(TpTn)X] with Na(Tp) gave [Zn(TpTn)2] and [Zn(Tp)2] in a 1:1 molar ratio but not [Zn(TpTn)(Tp)]. By contrast, the reaction of [Tl(TpTn)] with copper(II) sulfate monohydrate in chloroform gave a green powder, which was identified as the [(Hpz3Tn)4CuSO4](∞|∞) coordination polymer containing OSO2O bridging sulfate groups and four coordinated pyrazole ligands on each metal center, the latter of which arises from the decomposition of the TpTn ligand through B–N bond breaking. Similarly, the interaction between [Tl(TpTn)] and platinum(II) diiodide in chloroform/DMSO proceeded through TpTn decomposition to afford a monomeric trans-[(Hpz3Tn)2PtI2]·2(CH3)2SO complex, wherein two neutral pyrazole ligands are coordinated to the PtII center.

    ABSTRACT: Using a common 1-(1-phenylethenyl)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline precursor to the required ylide or N-oxide intermediate, the Stevens [2,3] and analogous Meisenheimer [2,3] sigmatropic rearrangements have been applied to afford concise syntheses of phenyl -substituted representatives of each of the reduced 1H-3-benzazonine and 4,3-benzoxazonine systems, respectively. Single crystal X-ray structure determinations were employed to define the conformational characteristics for each ring type.

    ABSTRACT: Adducts of a number of tertiary pnicogen ligands ER3 (triphenyl-phosphine and -arsine (PPh3,AsPh3), diphenyl,2-pyridylphosphine (PPh2py), tris(4-fluorophenyl)phosphine (P(C6H4-4F)3), tris(2-tolyl)phosphine (P(o-tol)3), tris(cyclohexyl)phosphine (PCy3)), with silver(I) thiocyanate, AgSCN are structurally and spectroscopically characterized. The 1:3 AgSCN:ER3 complexes structurally defined (for PPh3,AsPh3 (diversely solvated)) take the form [(R3E)3AgX], the thiocyanate X = NCS being N-bound, thus [(Ph3E)Ag(NCS)]. A 1:2 complex with PPh2py, takes the binuclear form [(pyPh2P)2Ag(SCNNCS)Ag(PPh2py)2] with an eight-membered cyclic core. 1:1 complexes are defined with PPh2py, P(o-tol)3 and PCy3; binuclear forms [(R3P)Ag(SCNNCS)Ag(PR3)] are obtained with P(o-tol)3 (two polymorphs), while novel isomeric tetranuclear forms, which may be envisaged as dimers of dimers, are obtained with PPh2py, and, as further polymorphs, with PCy3; these latter may be considered as extensions of the ‘cubane’ and ‘step’ forms previously described for [(R3E)AgX]4 (X = halide) complexes. Solvent-assisted mechanochemical or solvent-assisted solid-state synthesis methods were employed in some cases, where complexes could not be obtained by conventional solution methods, or where such methods yielded a mixture of polymorphs unsuitable for solid-state spectroscopy. The wavenumbers of the ν(CN) bands in the IR spectra are in broad agreement with the empirical rule that distinguishes bridging from terminal bonding, but exceptions occur for compounds that have a double SCN bridged dimeric structure, and replacement of PPh3 with PPh2py apparently causes a significant decrease in ν(CN) to well below the range expected for bridging SCN in these structures. 31P CP MAS NMR spectra yield additional parameters that allow a correlation between the structures and spectra.

    ABSTRACT: In the course of studies on hybrid antibacterials incorporating 2-aryl-5-nitro-1H-indole moieties as potential bacterial NorA efflux pump inhibitors, the compound 1-[2-(5-nitro-1H-indol-2-yl)phenyl]methylpyridinium chloride (2) was synthesized and structurally characterized. This pyridinium chloride salt crystallized in the monoclinic space group P2(1)/c with the following unit cell dimensions: a 10.274(3) Å, b 13.101(4) Å, c 13.439(4) Å, b 107.702(7)°, V 1723.2(9) ų, Z (f.u.) = 4; R1 = 0.048, and wR2 = 0.13. Of interest in the single crystal X-ray structure is the (intramolecular) disposition of the pyridinium plane over the indole heterocyclic residue [interplanar dihedral angle 17.91(4)°].

    ABSTRACT: Single crystal X-ray structure determinations are described for a number of adducts of 1:2 MX2:L stoichiometry, [M = divalent metal (Zn, Cd); X = halide (Cl, Br, I), L = (variously hindered) monodentate nitrogen (pyridine) base: py = pyridine, 2-mpy = 2-methylpyridine, quin = quinoline]: [(2-mpy)2ZnX2] (X = Cl, Br) (isotypic, triclinic P, a ≈ 7.96, b ≈ 8.7, c ≈ 11.4 Å, α ≈ 86, β ≈ 79.3, γ ≈ 67°, Z = 2), [(2-mpy)2ZnI2], [(quin)2ZnX2] (X = Br) (isotypic with the previously determined chloride, X = Cl, triclinic, P, a ≈ 8.7, b ≈ 9.6, c ≈ 11.1 Å, α ≈ 81, β ≈ 73, γ ≈ 72°, Z = 2); [(quin)2ZnI2]; [(2-mpy)2CdX2], X = Br {isotypic with [(2-mpy)2ZnX2], X = Cl, Br (above)}, X = I {isotypic with [(2-mpy)2ZnI2] (above)}; [(quin)2CdI2]. A single molecule, with a four-coordinate quasi-tetrahedral metal atom, N2MX2, comprises the asymmetric unit of the structure in each of these. A one-dimensional polymer is found for [(quin)2Cd(μ-Cl)2](∞‖∞), similar to those recorded previously for CdX2:py (1:2) (X = Cl, Br, I), the cadmium atom here lying on a 2-axis in tetragonal space group P21c, and the quin ligands coordinating trans in a six-coordinate array about the cadmium, with successive cadmium atoms being linked by pairs of bridging chlorines. Adducts of MX2:L (1:1) stoichiometry, defined for M = Cd: [(2,4,6-trimethylpyridine)Cd(μ-I)2](∞‖∞) and [(quin)Cd(μ-Br)2](∞‖∞), are both infinite one-dimensional polymers …(μ-X)2Cd(L)(μ-X)2Cd(L)…, with five-coordinate trigonal bipyramidal cadmium atoms, the nitrogen donors being equatorial in the coordination spheres. The far-IR spectra of [L2MX2] (L = py, 2-mpy, quin; M = Zn, Cd; X = Cl, Br, I) are assigned and discussed in relation to the structures of the complexes.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract The syntheses of two diastereoisomers of 2-acetyl-5-(1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydroxyhexyl)thiazole are reported. The synthesis of these diastereoisomers involved the coupling of 5-metallated 2-(1,1-dimethoxyethyl)thiazole with a Weinreb amide derived from δ-gluconolactone, followed by asymmetric reduction of the ketone thus prepared. The stereochemistries and structures of some key compounds were determined by single-crystal X-ray structural analysis. Graphical abstract
