The cobalt(II) chloride complexes, [2-(C7H4N2H)-8-(ArN)C10H8N]CoCl2 (Ar = 2,6-Me2C6H3 Co1; 2,6-Et2C6H3 Co2; 2,6-i-Pr2C6H3 Co3; 2,4,6-Me3C6H2 Co4; 2,6-Et2-4-MeC6H2 Co5; 2,4,6-t-Bu3C6H2 Co6), have each been prepared by a one-pot template reaction of 2-benzoimidazolyl-5,6,7-trihydroquinolin-8-one with the corresponding aniline in the presence of cobalt dichloride. The molecular structures of the methanol adducts, Co1(HOMe) and Co4(HOMe), reveal distorted octahedral geometries that self-assemble to… Expand
