Two new complexes, [Zn(O(2)CPh)(2)(L)(2)].2MeOH (1.2MeOH) and [Ni(2)(O(2)CPh))(4)(L)(2)].2MeCN (2.2MeCN), have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray analysis in the course of an ongoing investigation of the M(II)/X(-)/L [M(II) = Co, Ni, Cu, Zn; X(-) = Cl(-), Br(-), I(-), NCS(-), NO(3) (-), N(3) (-), PhCO(2) (-); L = 1-methyl-4,5-diphenylimidazole](More)
The reactions of methyl(2-pyridyl)ketone oxime, (py)C(Me)NOH, with manganese(II) sulfate monohydrate have been investigated. The reaction between equimolar quantities of MnSO(4) . H(2)O and (py)C(Me)NOH in H(2)O lead to the dinuclear complex [Mn(2)(SO(4))(2){(py)C(Me)NOH}(4)] . (py)C(Me)NOH, 1 . (py)C(Me)NOH, while employment of NaOMe as base affords the(More)
Two molecular grid-like clusters are reported, one is a discrete [3 × 5] grid and the other a [3 × 4] grid within a Mn12Ni2 loop. Both Mn24Ni2 and Mn15 aggregates display novel and aesthetically pleasing structures with the former one being among the highest nuclearity heterometallic MnxMy clusters (M = any transition metal ion).
The title compound, C(25)H(20)O(2), was synthesized by a Wittig reaction between triphen-yl[1-(pyren-1-yl)eth-yl]phospho-nium bromide and ethyl (2E,4E)-3-methyl-6-oxohexa-2,4-dienoate, in the presence of n-butyl lithium, followed by saponification. It was obtained pure in the all-trans configuration following crystallization from ethyl acetate. The(More)
The title compound, C(19)H(19)NO(2), obtained as an almost equimolar mixture (as shown by (1)H NMR) with the E isomer through a Wittig reaction between 4-amino-9H-fluoren-9-one and the stabilized ylide Ph(3)P=CHCO(2)C(CH(3))(3), was obtained pure in the Z configuration following crystallization from toluene. The mol-ecule shows a planar arrangement of the(More)
