(Alpha-diimine)chromium complexes: molecular and electronic structures; a combined experimental and density functional theoretical study.


Dark brown crystals of [Cr( (1)L) 2] ( 1) were obtained from the reaction of [Cr (III)(acac) 3] (acac (-) = 2,4-pentanedionate) with 2 equiv of 2-methyl-1,4-bis(2,6-dimethylphenyl)-1,4-diaza-1,3-butadiene ( (1)L) and 3 equiv of sodium in tetrahydrofuran (thf) under an Ar atmosphere. Complex 1 possesses an S = 1 ground state, which is attained via… (More)
