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)
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 formula unit of the title compound, 2C(6)H(7)N(2)O(+)·C(2)O(4) (2-), comprises two symmetry-equivalent 4-(hydroxy-imino-meth-yl)-pyridinium cations on general positions, linked through hydrogen bonding via an oxalate anion that resides on a crystallographic centre of symmetry. The crystal structure consists of infinite chains of cations and oxalate(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 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 analogy between ZnR fragments and the hydrogen radical represents a fruitful concept in organometallic synthesis. The organozinc(II) and-zinc(I) sources ZnMe 2 (Me ¼ methyl) and [Zn 2 Cp* 2 ] (Cp* ¼ pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) provide one-electron fragments $ZnR (R ¼ Me, Cp*), which can be trapped by transition metal complexes [L a M], yielding [L b(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)
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)
