Iron(III) coordination induced novel 18-metallacrown-6 complex: esterification and isolation of the ligand.

The trianionic heptadentate ligand, (Z)-3-(salicylhydrazinocarbonyl) propenoic acid ((Z)-H(4)shcpa) (1), has been synthesized in good yield and reacted with FeCl(3).6H(2)O, to produce the complex [Fe(III)(6) (C(12)H(9)N(2)O(5))(6)(H(2)O)(2)(CH(3)OH)(4)] x 6CH(3)OH (2). The complex has been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In the self… CONTINUE READING
