  1. The reduction potentials (reported vs. Fc + /Fc) for a series of Cp′ 3 Ln complexes (Cp′ = C 5 H 4 SiMe 3 , Ln = lanthanide) were determined via electrochemistry in THF with [ n Bu 4 N][BPh 4 ] as the supporting electrolyte. The Ln( iii )/Ln( ii ) reduction potentials for Ln = Eu, Yb, Sm, and Tm (−1.07 to −2.83 V) follow the expected trend for stability of 4f 7 , 4f 14 , 4f 6 , and 4f 13 Ln( ii ) ions, respectively. The reduction potentials for Ln = Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, and Lu, that form 4f n 5d 1 Ln( ii ) ions ( n = 2–14), fall in a narrow range of −2.95 V to −3.14 V. Only cathodic events were observed for La and Ce at −3.36 V and −3.43 V, respectively. The reduction potentials of the Ln( ii ) compounds [K(2.2.2-cryptand)][Cp′ 3 Ln] (Ln = Pr, Sm, Eu) match those of the Cp′ 3 Ln complexes. The reduction potentials of nine (C 5 Me 4 H) 3 Ln complexes were also studied and found to be 0.05–0.24 V more negative than those of the Cp′more »3 Ln compounds.« less
  2. Studies of the coordination chemistry between the diphenylamide ligand, NPh 2 , and the smaller rare-earth Ln III ions, Ln = Y, Dy, and Er, led to the structural characterization by single-crystal X-ray diffraction crystallography of both solvated and unsolvated complexes, namely, tris(diphenylamido-κ N )bis(tetrahydrofuran-κ O )yttrium(III), Y(NPh 2 ) 3 (THF) 2 or [Y(C 12 H 10 N) 3 (C 4 H 8 O) 2 ], 1-Y , and the erbium(III) (Er), 1-Er , analogue, and bis[μ-1κ N :2(η 6 )-diphenylamido]bis[bis(diphenylamido-κ N )yttrium(III)], [(Ph 2 N) 2 Y(μ-NPh 2 )] 2 or [Y 2 (C 12 H 10 N) 6 ], 2-Y , and the dysprosium(III) (Dy), 2-Dy , analogue. The THF ligands of 1-Er are modeled with disorder across two positions with occupancies of 0.627 (12):0.323 (12) and 0.633 (7):0.367 (7). Also structurally characterized was the tetrametallic Er III bridging oxide hydrolysis product, bis(μ-diphenylamido-κ 2 N : N )bis[μ-1κ N :2(η 6 )-diphenylamido]tetrakis(diphenylamido-κ N )di-μ 3 -oxido-tetraerbium(III) benzene disolvate, {[(Ph 2 N)Er(μ-NPh 2 )] 4 (μ-O) 2 }·(C 6 H 6 ) 2 or [Er 4 (C 12 H 10 N) 8 O 2 ]·2C 6 H 6 , 3-Er . The 3-Er structure was refined as a three-component twin with occupanciesmore »0.7375:0.2010:0.0615.« less
