The crystal structure of β-cyclo-dextrin, C(42)H(70)O(35)·10.41H(2)O, consists of truncated cone-shaped β-cyclo-dextrin mol-ecules that are herringbone packed. The primary hydr-oxy groups form an intra-molecular hydrogen-bonded array. The semipolar cavity of the cyclo-dextrin host is filled with water mol-ecules, which show partial occupancy and disorder.
The bottom-up synthesis of organometallic zinc clusters is described. The cation {[Zn10](Cp*)6 Me}(+) (1) is obtained by reacting [Zn2 Cp*2] with [FeCp2][BAr4 (F)] in the presence of ZnMe2. In the presence of suitable ligands, the high reactivity of 1 enables the controlled abstraction of single Zn units, providing access to the lower-nuclearity clusters(More)
In the crystal structure of the title mononuclear Cu(II) complex, [Cu(C11H16N3O2)(NO3)]·0.25C2H5OH, the complex molecules are linked by N-H⋯O and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a dimer with an approximate non-crystallographic twofold rotation axis of symmetry. In the monomeric unit, the Cu(2+) ion exhibits a distorted square-pyramidal configuration, whereby(More)
The title compound, [Cu(C20H23N3O4)], crystallizes in the space group Cc with two independent mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit. The Cu(II) atoms are each coordinated by the penta-dentate Schiff base ligand in a distorted trigonal bipyramidal N3O2 geometry. The equatorial plane is formed by the two phenolic O atoms and the amine N atom, while the axial(More)
4,4′-Dithiodipyridine (dtdp), also termed 4,4′-dipyridyldisulfide, is a bridging ligand of the 4,4′-bipyridine type. The introduction of the disulfide moiety inevitably leads to a relatively rigid angular structure, which exhibits axial chirality. More than 90 metal complexes containing the dtdp ligand have been crystallographically characterised until now.(More)
The structure of the title compound, [Zn(4)(C(40)H(24)N(8))(4)]·8C(3)H(7)NO·3H(2)O, has been redetermined at 100 K. The redetermination is of significantly higher precision and gives further insight into the disorder of pyridyl groups and solvent mol-ecules. The mol-ecules of (5,10,15,20-tetra-4-pyridyl-porphyrinato)zinc(II) (ZnTPyP) form homomolecular(More)
The crystal structure of the title compound, C(30)H(30)O(4), comprises two crystallographically independent half-mol-ecules which are completed by crystallographic twofold symmetry. The dihedral angles between the naphthalene ring planes are 85.83 (3) and 83.69 (3)° for the two molecules. The atoms of the tert-butyl group of one mol-ecule are disordered(More)
The crystal structure of the title compound, [Cu(2)Cl(4)(C(10)H(8)N(2)O(2)S)(2)(H(2)O)(2)], comprises neutral centrosymmetric μ-chloride-bridged dinuclear units. Each Cu(II) ion is penta-coordinated by three chloride ligands, a pyridine N-oxide O atom and a water mol-ecule. Intra- and inter-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds occur between the coordinated water(More)
