Solvent effects in a series of Fe(iii) spin crossover (SCO) complexes [Fe(qsal-I)2]OTf·sol (sol = MeOH 1, EtOH 2, n-PrOH 3, i-PrOH 4, acetone 5 and MeCN 6) are explored. SCO is abrupt in 1 (following MeOH loss) and 2, gradual for 3 (T1/2 = 199 K) and 4 (T1/2 = 251 K) and incomplete, even up to 350 K, for 5 and 6. In [Fe(qsal-I)2]OTf SCO occurs at T1/2↓ =(More)
[Fe(qsal-Br)2]NO3·2MeOH is reported which undergoes abrupt two step symmetry breaking spin crossover, T½(1st step) = 136 K and T½(2nd step) = 232 K with a hysteresis of 16 K and 5 K, respectively, and an unprecedented [HS-LS] plateau of 96 K.
A series of new cobalt(II) and nickel(II) tris(3,5-diphenylpyrazolyl)borate (Tp(Ph2)) dithiocarbamate complexes [Tp(Ph2)M(dtc)] (M = Co, dtc = S₂CNEt₂ 1, S₂CNBz₂ 2 and S₂CN(CH₂)₄ 3; M = Ni, dtc = S₂CNEt₂ 4, S₂CNBz₂ 5 and S₂CN(CH₂)₄ 6) have been prepared by the reaction of [Tp(Ph2)MBr] with Nadtc in CH₂Cl₂. IR spectroscopy indicates that the Tp(Ph2) ligand(More)
In the title compound, [Co(C(5)HF(6)O(2))(2)(C(9)H(8)N(2))], the Co(II) centre exhibits a pseudooctahedral coordination geometry, comprising two N-atom donors from the bidentate amino-quinoline ligand and four O-atom donor atoms from two bidentate chelating 1,1,1,5,5,5-hexafluoropentane-2,4-dionate ligands. In the crystal, molecules are linked via pairs of(More)
In the title polymer, [Cd(C(5)H(3)N(2)O(2))(NO(3))(H(2)O)](n), the Cd(II) atom is seven-coordinate in a distorted capped octa-hedral geometry by two N atoms of two different pyrimidine dicarboxyl-ate (pmc) ligands, three O atoms from three separate pmc ligands, and two O atoms of disordered nitrate anions or water mol-ecules. The Cd(II) atoms are bridged by(More)
The reaction of CoX2 (X = Cl, Br, NO3) with KTp(Ph2) in tetrahydrofuran (THF) yields the half-sandwich compounds [Tp(Ph2)CoX] (X = Cl 1, Br 2, NO3 3). The reaction of [Tp(Ph2)CoBr] with NaX (X = N3, NO2) or potassium thiocyanate (KNCS) permits isolation of [Tp(Ph2)CoX] (X = N3 4, NCS 5, NO2 6). In contrast, the reaction of cobalt(II) acetate with KTp(Ph2)(More)
The d4 halide complexes [MX(CO)(eta-RC[triple bond, length as m-dash]CR)Tp'] {X=F, Cl, Br or I; R=Me or Ph; M=Mo or W; Tp'=hydrotris(3,5-dimethylpyrazolyl)borate} undergo one-electron oxidation to the d3 monocations [MX(CO)(eta-RC[triple bond, length as m-dash]CR)Tp']+, isolable for M=W, R=Me. X-Ray structural studies on the redox pairs(More)
The first crystal structure of a second-generation tris-(pyrazol-yl)methane, namely the title compound, C(31)H(28)N(6), is reported. The mol-ecule exhibits a helical conformation with an average twist of 35.1°. In addition, there are C-H⋯π inter-actions of 3.202 (2) Å between the pyrazole C-H group and neighbouring phenyl groups.
In the title complex, [Co(C(5)HF(6)O(2))(2)(C(12)H(9)BrN(2))], the Co(II) atom exhibits a pseudo-octa-hedral coordination geometry, comprising two N-donor atoms from a bidentate chelate (4-bromo-phen-yl)(2-pyridyl-methyl-idene)amine (ppa(Br)) ligand [Co-N = 2.098 (2) and 2.209 (2) Å] and four O-donor atoms from two bidentate chelate(More)
