Metalation studies of 3- and 4-pyridyloxycyclophosphazenes: metallamacrocycles to coordination polymers.


Pyridyloxy cyclophosphazenes, spiro-N3P3(O2C12H8)(O-C5H4N-3)4 (L1), dispiro-N3P3(O2C12H8)2(O-C5H4N-3)2 (L2) and dispiro-N3P3(O2C12H8)2(O-C5H4N-4)2 (L3) were prepared and characterized. The crystal structure of L1 was determined which showed that the cyclophosphazene ring is planar. The reaction of L1 with anhydrous copper(II) chloride or silver nitrate… (More)
