Title: Bis(catecholato-κ 2 O , O ′)bis(dimethyl sulfoxide-κ O )titanium(IV)
Bis(benzene-1,2-diolato-κ 2 O , O ′)bis(dimethyl sulfoxide-κ O )titanium(IV), [Ti(C 6 H 4 O 2 ) 2 (C 2 H 6 OS) 2 ], crystallizes with two crystallographically independent molecules in the space group P 2 1 / c emulating orthorhombic Pbca symmetry (β = 90.0445 (9)°]. The two molecules are related by pseudo-glide symmetry, broken by modulation of each one catecholate and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) ligand. Twinning by pseudomerohedry was observed [twin ratio 0.5499 (7):0.4401 (7)]. Complex 3 was obtained by heating of diprotonated titanium tris-catecholate precursor 2 H in DMSO, by formal displacement of a catechol molecule by two DMSO molecules. Complex 3 is just the second heteroleptic, mono-nuclear, neutral bis-catecholate complex with TiO 6 metal coordination, the only other one being its bis-DMF analogue 6 . The two molecules of 3 exhibit a distorted octahedral geometry. The geometry and distortions from ideal symmetry of 3 are discussed and compared to 6 and to cationic tris-catecholate titanium complexes.

  1. Structural characterization of the ionic title complex, [MgBr(THF) 5 ][Co(dpbz) 2 ]·2THF [THF is tetrahydrofuran, C 4 H 8 O; dpbz is 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)benzene, C 30 H 24 P 2 ], revealed a well-separated cation and anion co-crystallized with two THF solvent molecules that interact with the cation via weak C—H...O contacts. The geometry about the cobalt center is pseudotetrahedral, as is expected for a d 10 metal center, only deviating from an ideal tetrahedral geometry because of the restrictive bite angles of the bidentate phosphane ligands. Three THF ligands of the cation and one co-crystallized THF solvent molecule are each disordered over two orientations. In the extended structure, the cations and THF solvent molecules are arranged in (100) sheets that alternate with layers of anions, the latter of which show various π-interactions, which may explain the particular packing arrangement.
  2. We report the hydrothermal syntheses and crystal structures of aquabis(2,2′-bipyridine-κ 2 N , N ′)copper(II) hexafluoridosilicate tetrahydrate, [Cu(bpy) 2 (H 2 O)][SiF 6 ]·4H 2 O (bpy is 2,2′-bipyridine, C 10 H 8 N 2 ), (I), bis(2,2′-bipyridine-3κ 2 N , N ′)-di-μ-fluorido-1:3κ 2 F : F ;2:3κ 2 F : F -decafluorido-1κ 5 F ,2κ 5 F -ditantalum(V)copper(II), [Cu(bpy) 2 (TaF 6 ) 2 ], (II), tris(2,2′-bipyridine-κ 2 N , N ′)copper(II) bis[hexafluoridotantalate(V)], [Cu(bpy) 3 ][TaF 6 ] 2 , (III), and catena -poly[[diaqua(2,2′-bipyridine-κ 2 N , N ′)copper(II)]-μ-fluorido-tetrafluoridotin-μ-fluorido], [Cu(bpy)(H 2 O) 2 SnF 6 ] n , (IV). Compounds (I), (II) and (III) contain locally chiral copper coordination complexes with C 2 , D 2 , and D 3 symmetry, respectively. The extended structures of (I) and (IV) are consolidated by O—H...F and O—H...O hydrogen bonds. The structure of (III) was found to be a merohedral (racemic) twin.
  3. The title compound, [PtCl 2 (C 26 H 22 P 2 )]·2CHCl 3 (I), is the third monoclinic polymorph of this platinum(II) complex involving the bidentate ligand cis -1,2-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)ethylene ( cis -dppe) [for the others, see: Oberhauser et al. (1998 a ). Inorg. Chim. Acta , 274 , 143–154, and Oberhauser et al. (1995). Inorg. Chim. Acta , 238 , 35–43]. The structure of compound (I) was solved in the space group P 2 1 / c , with one complex molecule in the asymmetric unit along with two solvate chloroform molecules. The Pt II atom is ligated by two P and two Cl atoms in the equatorial plane and has a perfect square-planar coordination sphere. In the crystal, the complex molecule is linked to the chloroform solvate molecules by C—H...Cl hydrogen bonds and face-on C—Cl...π interactions. There are also weak offset π–π interactions present [intercentroid distances are 3.770 (6) and 4.096 (6) Å], linking the molecules to form supramolecular sheets that lie in the bc plane.
  4. 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
  5. Copper(I) iodide complexes are well known for displaying a diverse array of structural features even when only small changes in ligand design are made. This structural diversity is well displayed by five copper(I) iodide compounds reported here with closely related piperidine-2,6-dithione (SNS), isoindoline-1,3-dithione (SNS6), and 6-thioxopiperidin-2-one (SNO) ligands: di-μ-iodido-bis[(acetonitrile-κ N )(6-sulfanylidenepiperidin-2-one-κ S )copper(I)], [Cu 2 I 2 (CH 3 CN) 2 (C 5 H 7 NOS) 2 ] ( I ), bis(acetonitrile-κ N )tetra-μ 3 -iodido-bis(6-sulfanylidenepiperidin-2-one-κ S )- tetrahedro -tetracopper(I), [Cu 4 I 4 (CH 3 CN) 4 (C 5 H 7 NOS) 4 ] ( II ), catena -poly[[(μ-6-sulfanylidenepiperidin-2-one-κ 2 O : S )copper(I)]-μ 3 -iodido], [CuI(C 5 H 7 NOS)] n ( III ), poly[[(piperidine-2,6-dithione-κ S )copper(I)]-μ 3 -iodido], [CuI(C 5 H 7 NS 2 )] n ( IV ), and poly[[(μ-isoindoline-1,3-dithione-κ 2 S : S )copper(I)]-μ 3 -iodido], [CuI(C 8 H 5 NS 2 )] n ( V ). Compounds I and II crystallize as discrete dimeric and tetrameric complexes, whereas III , IV , and V crystallize as polymeric two-dimensional sheets. To the best of our knowledge, compound III is the first instance of an extended hexagonal [Cu 3 I 3 ] structure that is notmore »supported by bridging ligands. Structures I , II , and IV display weak to moderately strong Cu...Cu cuprophilic interactions [Cu...Cu internuclear distances range between 2.5803 (10) and 2.8485 (14) Å]. All structures except III display weak hydrogen-bonding interactions between the N—H of the ligand and the μ 2 and μ 3 -I − atoms. Structure III contains classical N–H...O interactions between the SNO ligands that connect the molecules in a three-dimensional framework. Complex V features π–π stacking interactions between the aryl rings of the SNS6 ligands within the same polymeric sheet. In structure IV , there were three partially occupied solvent molecules of dichloromethane and one partially occupied molecule of acetonitrile present in the asymmetric unit. The SQUEEZE routine [Spek (2015). Acta Cryst . C 71 , 9–18] was used to correct the diffraction data for diffuse scattering effects and to identify the solvent molecules. The given chemical formula and other crystal data do not take into account the solvent molecules.« less
