Spectroscopic and structural characterization of the [Fe(imidazole)(6)](2+) cation.

Spectroscopic, structural, and magnetic data are presented for Fe(C(3)H(4)N(2))(6)(NO(3))(2), which facilitate a precise definition of the electronic and molecular structure of the [Fe(Im)(6)](2+) cation. The structure was determined at 120(1) K by X-ray diffraction methods. The salt crystallizes in the trigonal space group R3 with unit-cell parameters a… CONTINUE READING
