Different Coordination Modes of a Tripod Phosphine in Gold(I) and Silver(I) Complexes

The following gold(I) and silver(I) complexes of the tritertiary phosphine 1,1,1- tris(diphenylphosphinomethyl)ethane, tripod , have been synthesised: Au(3)(tripod)X(3) [X = Cl(1), Br(2), I(3)]; [Au(3)(tripod)(2)Cl(2)]Cl (4); Au(tripod)X [X = Br(5), I(6)]; Ag(3)(tripod) (NO(3))(4) (7), Ag(tripod)NO(3) (8). They were characterized by X-ray diffraction… (More)
