  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. The synthesis and characterization of a series of Sn( ii ) and Sn( iv ) complexes supported by the highly electron-withdrawing dianionic perfluoropinacolate (pin F ) ligand are reported herein. Three analogs of [Sn IV (pin F ) 3 ] 2− with NEt 3 H + ( 1 ), K + ( 2 ), and {K(18C6)} + ( 3 ) counter cations and two analogs of [Sn II (pin F ) 2 ] 2− with K + ( 4 ) and {K(15C5) 2 } + ( 5 ) counter cations were prepared and characterized by standard analytical methods, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, and 119 Sn Mössbauer and NMR spectroscopies. The six-coordinate Sn IV (pin F ) complexes display 119 Sn NMR resonances and 119 Sn Mössbauer spectra similar to SnO 2 (cassiterite). In contrast, the four-coordinate Sn II (pin F ) complexes, featuring a stereochemically-active lone pair, possess low 119 Sn NMR chemical shifts and relatively high quadrupolar splitting. Furthermore, the Sn( ii ) complexes are unreactive towards both Lewis bases (pyridine, NEt 3 ) and acids (BX 3 , Et 3 NH + ). Calculations confirm that the Sn( ii ) lone pair is localized within the 5s orbital andmore »reveal that the Sn 5p x LUMO is energetically inaccessible, which effectively abates reactivity.« less
