Isomerization mechanisms of stereolabile tris- and bis-bidentate octahedral cobalt(II) complexes: X-ray structure and variable temperature and pressure NMR kinetic investigations.


The isomerization dynamics of five labile octahedral Co(II) compounds have been investigated by variable temperature and pressure (1)H and (19)F NMR spectroscopy in dichloromethane solution. The X-ray crystal structure of the two tris-chelates, [Co(HFA)(2)bpic] (1) and [Co(TTFA)(2)bpy] (2), show a distorted octahedral arrangement of the 4 oxygen and 2… (More)
