    ABSTRACT: Reactions of [(η(6)-cymene)Ru(μ-Cl)Cl]2 with acylpyrazolone ligands HQ' (HQ' in general; in detail, HQ(CH2Cl) = 2-chloro-1-(5-hydroxy-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)ethanone), HQ(hex) = 1-(5-hydroxy-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)heptan-1-one), HQ(nPe) = 1-(5-hydroxy-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)-3,3-dimethylbutan-1-one)), in the presence of base, gave the corresponding [(η(6)-cymene)Ru(Q')Cl] mononuclear complexes. They react with AgX (where X = O3SCF3 or BF4) in dry acetone affording cationic metalla-cycles [(η(6)-cymene)Ru(Q')]4(X)4. The complexes were fully characterized by analytical and spectroscopic methods and the solid-state structures of mononuclear and tetranuclear complexes have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The hapticity of the acylpyrazolone ligands to the Ru metal centre has also been established by (13)C and (15)N CPMAS NMR spectroscopy for the complexes where the lack of crystallinity prevented the elucidation of the crystal structure by SCXRD data.

    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: 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: Single crystal X-ray structure determinations have previously been described for picrate salts of a variety of nitrogen bases. Herein, these have been extended to encompass monoprotonated mono- and oligo-dentate cyclic nitrogen-donor ligand systems derived from pyridine, some via saturation (piperidine and morpholine) and others via lateral extension of the aromatic system (2,2′-bipyridine, 1,10-phenanthroline, 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline, bis(2-pyridyl)amine, 2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine, and 8-hydroxyquinoline). Hydrogen-bonding interactions are dominant determinants of the structures, complemented by or in competition with parallel stacking of anion and (aromatic) base planes. Furthermore, nitronitro, nitroπ and phenoxy-Oπ inter-species contacts play a significant role in the crystal packing. It also appears that cationanion interactions arising from CH(adjacent to NH)O(o-nitro) interactions are more important than the available secondary bifurcating component associated with any NHO(o-nitro) approach, resulting, in many cases, in a bidentate NHHC base approach to an (ON)OOO(NO) triadic array. The nature of the anion-cation interactions and their importance are explored using the Hirshfeld surface method. The precision of the structure determinations establishes the quinonoid form of the picrate to be a widespread contributor. Theoretical calculations on picric acid and the parent pyridinium-picrate ion-pair confirm the energetic favourability of the base-triad approach and the dominance of the quinonoid resonance form.

    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: 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: Single crystal X-ray studies are presented for the `piano-stool' structures [CpRu,Os(CO)(2)Cl], [Cp'Ru(CO)(2)X] (X = Cl, Br, I (redetermination)), [Cp*Ru(CO)(2)Cl] (two phases), enabling the assembly of comparative geometric data for the [CpM(CO)(2)Cl] (M = Fe, Ru, Os), [Cp, Cp'Ru(CO)(2)X] (X = Cl, Br, I) and [(CpRu)-Ru-x(CO)(2)Cl] (Cp-x = Cp (eta-C5H5), Cp' (eta-C5H4CH3), Cp* (eta-C5CH3)(5), Cp-Ph (eta-C-5(C6H5)(5))). In the [Cp'Ru(CO)(2)X] arrays, the methyl groups are found to consistently lie `eclipsed' visa-vis the halogen substituents, with a concomitant tilt of the Cp ring; the reasons for this are explored theoretically.

    ABSTRACT: The interaction between hexabromoethane and [CpRu(CO)(2)Br] (Cp = (eta-C5H5), results in the deposition of two different isostoichiometric co-crystals, 2[CpRu(CO)(2)Br]center dot C2Br6, one crystallising in space group P (1) over bar (Z = 1) and the other in P2(1)/n (Z = 4). These were produced in the reaction of HCBr3 and [(CpRu(CO)(2))(2)] under indoor illumination, following a slight modification of the literature procedure. The origin of the hexabromoethane is as yet unknown but it appears to have been formed in the reaction rather than being an impurity in the bromoform. We have analysed the structures using the Hirshfeld surface approach and electrostatic potentials, supported by DFT theoretical calculations to better define the nature of intermolecular interactions in the solid state. The results indicate that the most significant interactions within both crystal forms arise not from the closest van der Waals contacts but, rather, from more distant interactions between the unsymmetrical electron distributions about the bromine atoms in the solvate and substrate molecules.

    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: Syntheses of a number of adducts of silver(I) (bi-)carbonate with triphenylphosphine, both mechanochemically, and from solution, are described, together with their infra-red spectra, (31)P CP MAS NMR and crystal structures. Ag(HCO(3)):PPh(3) (1:4) has been isolated in the ionic form [Ag(PPh(3))(4)](HCO(3))·2EtOH·3H(2)O. Ag(2)CO(3):PPh(3) (1:4) forms a binuclear neutral molecule [(Ph(3)P)(2)Ag(O,μ-O'·CO)Ag(PPh(3))(2)](·2H(2)O), while Ag(HCO(3)):PPh(3) (1:2) has been isolated in both mononuclear and binuclear forms: [(Ph(3)P)(2)Ag(O(2)COH)] and [(Ph(3)P)(2)Ag(μ-O·CO·OH)(2)Ag(PPh(3))(2)] (both unsolvated). A more convenient method for the preparation of the previously reported copper(I) complex [(Ph(3)P)(2)Cu(HCO(3))] is also reported.

    ABSTRACT: Whereas complexes of divalent metal halides (X = Cl, Br, I) with/from pyridine commonly crystallise as trans-[M(py)4X2] ·2py, M on a site of 222 symmetry in space group Ccca, true for CuCl 2 and CuBr2 in particular, the copper(ii) iodide adduct is of the form [Cu(py)4I]I·2py, Cu on a site of mm2 symmetry in space group Cmcm, and five-coordinate (square-pyramidal), the same cationic species also being found in 2[Cu(py)4I](I3)·[(py) 2Cu(μ-I)2Cu(py)2] (structurally defined). Bromide or N-thiocyanate may be substituted for the unbound iodide ion in the solvated salt, resulting in complexes which crystallize in space group Ccca, but with both anions and the metal atom disordered. In [Cu(py)4(I 3)2], a pair of long Cu⋯I contacts approach a square-planar Cu(py)4 array. Assignments of the ν(CuN) and ν(CuX) (X = Br, I, SCN) bands in the far-IR spectra are made, the latter with the aid of analogous assignments for [Cu(py)2X2] (X = Cl, Br), which show a dependence of ν(CuX) on the Cu-X bond length that is very similar to that determined previously for copper(i) halide complexes. The structure of the adventitious complex [(trans-)(H2O)(py) 4CuClCu(py)4](I3)3·H 2O is also recorded, with six- and five-coordinate copper atoms; rational synthesis provides [{Cu(py)4}2(μ-Cl)](I 3)3·H2O with one water molecule less. In [{Cu(py)4Cl}(∞∞)](I3)·3py, square pyramidal [Cu(py)4Cl]+ cations, assisted by Cl⋯Cu interactions, stack to give rise to infinite polymeric strings. Several of these compounds were prepared mechanochemically, illustrating the applicability of this method to syntheses involving redox reactions as well as to complex syntheses involving up to five components. The totality of results demonstrates that the [CuII(py)4] entity can be stabilized in an unexpectedly diverse range of mononuclear and multinuclear complexes through the presence of lattice pyridine molecules, the bulky triiodide ion, or a combination of both.

    ABSTRACT: A representative series of polymeric hydrated lanthanoid perfluoroadipates [Ln2(pfad)3(H2O)n] · mH 2O (Ln = La, Ce, Nd, Gd, Yb) has been prepared from the reaction of perfluoroadipic acid with either the appropriate lanthanoid oxide or Ce 2(CO3)3 in water. X-ray crystal structures showed [Ln2(pfad)3(H2O)10] · 4H2O (La, Nd) to be two-dimensional inorganic polymers, which contain nine-coordinate Ln atoms to which are attached five water molecules and four carboxylate oxygen atoms. Two pfad ligands bridge two Ln atoms through one carboxylate group, the other being free, whilst one pfad ligand bridges four Ln atoms in a μ-(η11,η11/η11, η1) manner. In two-dimensional polymeric [Yb2(pfad) 2(H2O)8](pfad)·6H2O, each eight-coordinate ytterbium atom has four water ligands and four carboxylate oxygen donor atoms. The two carboxylate ligands bind in a μ4- (η11,η11/η11,η11) manner, and there is one pfad counter-ion per two ytterbium atoms. These structures show features quite different from those of many lanthanoid adipate complexes [Ln2(ad)3(H2O)n] · mH2O, but there is no F-Ln coordination. From the reaction of [Nd2(pfad)3(H2O)10] · 4H 2O with benzene-1,2-disulfonic acid (H2bds), the mixed ligand complex [Nd2(bds)2(pfad)(H2O) 8] was isolated. This is a one-dimensional polymer featuring Nd 2(bds)2 units linked together by μ-η2, η2 pfad ligands. Each Nd atom is nine-coordinate with three sulfonate oxygen donors, two carboxylate oxygen atoms, and four water ligands, and the bds ligands bind in the new μ-η2(O,O′), η1(O′) manner for Ln complexes. Surprisingly, [Na 2pfad] was isolated unhydrated from water, the six-coordinate Na atoms being coordinated by four carboxylate oxygen atoms and two (C)-F atoms in an octahedral array. The ligands are duodecadentate, each -CF2CO 2 unit binding to five different sodium ions through four oxygen and one α-F atom with the second α-F atom bound to a sodium ion in a OC(O)CF-Na chelate ring.

    ABSTRACT: Syntheses, single crystal X-ray structural and spectroscopic characterizations are described for a variety of adducts of silver salts with ethylenethiourea (etu). Ag2SO4/etu (1:6) is isomorphous with its previously studied copper(I) counterpart, the [Ag(S-etu)3]+ species disposed with their silver atoms on crystallographic 3-axes, one of the two independent cations being slightly perturbed by a distant O-sulfate approach along that axis. In AgCl/etu (1:3), the silver atom is in a four-coordinate ClAgS3 environment, while AgNO3/etu (1:3) takes the form [(etu)2Ag(µ-S-etu)2Ag(etu)2](NO3)2. AgBr/etu (1:2) is binuclear [(etu)2Ag(µ-Br)2Ag(etu)2)], unlike its previously studied copper counterpart, which is [(etu)BrCu(µ-S-etu)2CuBr(etu)]. AgCl/etu (4:6) is an interesting ionic polymer [ClAg4(etu)6](∞|∞)Cl3, containing a novel one-dimensional polymeric cation. Bands in the far IR spectra of these compounds are assigned to v(AgS) and v(AgX) (X = halogen) modes, and a correlation between v(AgS) and the Ag–S bond length d(AgS) is established for silver complexes involving the etu ligand.Key words: silver, sulfur ligands, X-ray crystal structure, coordination chemistry, complexes.

    ABSTRACT: Methyl(phenoxo)mercury(II) may be obtained from the reaction of methyl(chloro)mercury(II) with silver(I) oxide, followed by addition of phenol. The dominant motif of the structure is a pair of independent MeHgOPh aggregates (Hg—C,O 2.05(2) Å, 2.06(1) Å (x2); C-Hg-O 176.6(5)°, 176.3(5)°) loosely associated about a quasi-inversion centre by Hg···O interactions (2.702(9) Å, 2.719(9) Å) to form a dimer (Hg-O-Hg′ 106.0(4)°, 106.5(4)°; O-Hg-O′ 73.0(3)°, 72.6(3)°), the dimer stacking up the short crystallographic c axis (= 6.914(1) Å) at spacings c/2. Vibrational spectroscopic studies are insensitive to the associative interactions. Key words: mercury, methylmercury, organomercury, structure, aryloxide, phenoxide.
