Abstract

Reacting VO(acac)2 with six equivalents of dibenzylphosphinic acid in the presence of 4,4′-bipyridine or μ2-N1,N2-di(pyridin-4-yl)oxalamide leads to trimeric (V3(μ3-O)O2)(μ2-O2P(CH2C6H5)2)6(4,4′-bipyridine) or the hexamer [(V3(μ3-O)O2)(μ2-O2P(CH2C6H5)2)6]2(μ2-N1,N2-di(pyridin-4-yl)oxalamide). The complexes were characterized by spectroscopic (FTIR and 1H NMR spectroscopies), TGA, and by single crystal X-ray diffraction measurements. The structures consist of a planar central core where three vanadium ions are arranged in the form of a quasi-isosceles triangle and contain an interstitial O which is multiply bonded to one V and weakly interacting at different bond distances to the remaining two V ions.
