The synthesis and structures of Fe, Co, and Zn halide complexes [MX(2)(H(2)L)] (M = Fe, X = Br; M = Co, Zn, X = Cl) of the N-donor extended dipyrromethane ligand H(2)L are described, from which it is clear that bond rearrangements from imine-pyrrole to amine-azafulvene tautomers occur on metal co-ordination, both in the solid state and in solution. In the(More)
The syntheses and solid-state and solution structures of a series of unusually volatile, charge neutral, [4 + 4] double-stranded helical complexes of divalent manganese, iron, cobalt, and zinc are described. Deprotonation of the N4-donor iminopyrrole ligand H2L by KH cleanly generates the salt K2(THF)2L, which displays both sigma and pi interactions between(More)
The title compounds, mu-oxido-bis[(tert-butylselenolato)bis(eta(5)-cyclopentadienyl)niobium(IV)] toluene solvate, [Nb(2)(C(5)H(5))(4)(C(4)H(9)Se)(2)O] x C(7)H(8), and mu-selenido-bis[(tert-butylselenolato)bis(eta(5)-cyclopentadienyl)niobium(IV)], [Nb(2)(C(5)H(5))(4)(C(4)H(9)Se)(2)Se], consist of niobium(IV) centres each bonded to two eta(5)-coordinated(More)
The structure of the title compound, [Zr(C(5)H(5))(2)(C(9)H(11)Te)(2)], consists of a zirconium(IV) centre bonded to two η(5)-coord-inated cyclo-penta-dienyl groups and two mesityltellurolate ligands; the discrete mol-ecule has crystallographic twofold rotation symmetry. The structural parameters compared with those in [(η(5)-Me(5)Cp)(2)Zr(TePh)(2)](More)
Reaction of TiCl(4) or ZrI(4) with the soft, neutral o-C(6)H(4)(CH(2)EMe)(2) (E = S or Se) in anhydrous CH(2)Cl(2) (or toluene) yields the distorted octahedral chelate complexes [MX(4){o-C(6)H(4)(CH(2)EMe)(2)}]. Using Et(2)Se gives [MX(4)(Et(2)Se)(2)] (M = Zr, X = Cl or I; M = Hf, X = I). The Sn(IV) analogues, [SnCl(4){o-C(6)H(4)(CH(2)EMe)(2)}] and(More)
The syntheses, characterisation and complexation reactions of a series of binucleating Schiff-base calixpyrrole macrocycles are described. The acid-templated [2+2] condensations between meso-disubstituted diformyldipyrromethanes and o-phenylenediamines generate the Schiff-base pyrrolic macrocycles H(4)L(1) to H(4)L(6) upon basic workup. The single-crystal(More)
