Macrocyclic complexes of palladium(II) with benzothiacrown ethers: synthesis, characterization, and structure of cis and trans isomers.

A series of palladium(II) complexes with nitro- and formylbenzothiacrown-ether derivatives was synthesized. The spatial structure of the complexes was studied by NMR, X-ray diffraction analysis, and quantum chemical calculations (density functional theory). The cavity size and the ligand denticity were found to be crucial factors determining the geometric… CONTINUE READING
