Crystal structure of bis-(1-methyl-1H-imidazole-?N (3))(5,10,15,20-tetra-phenyl-porphyrinato-?(4) N)iron(II)-1-methyl-1H-imidazole (1/2).
ABSTRACT: The title compound, [Fe(C44H28N4)(C4H6N2)2]·2C4H6N2, is a six-coordinate Fe(II)-porphyrinate complex with the metal located on a center of inversion and coordinated by two axial 1-methyl-imidazole ligands; the complex crystallizes as a 1-methyl-imidazole disolvate. The 1-methyl-imidazole group bonded to the Fe(II) atom [occupancy ratio 0.789?(4):0.211?(4)] and the unbound 1-methyl-imidazole mol-ecule [0.519?(4):0.481?(4)] were disordered. The average Fe-N(porphyrinate) bond length is 1.998?(3)?Å and the axial Fe-N(imidazole) bond length is 1.9970?(12)?Å. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked into a three-mol-ecule aggregate by two weak C-H?N inter-actions.
Project description:The title salts, C4H7N2 (+)·NO3 (-)·C4H6N2, (I), and C4H7N2 (+)·NO3 (-), (II), were obtained from solutions containing 2-methyl-imidazole and nitric acid in different concentrations. In the crystal structure of salt (I), one of the -NH H atoms of the imidazole ring shows half-occupancy, hence only every second mol-ecule is in its cationic form. The nitrate anion in this structure lies on a twofold rotation axis. The neutral 2-methyl-imidazole mol-ecule and the 2-methyl-1H-imidazol-3-ium cation inter-act through N-H?N hydrogen bonds to form [(C4H6N2)?(C4H7N2)(+)] pairs. These pairs are linked with two nitrate anions on both sides through bifurcated N-H?(O,O) hydrogen bonds into chains running parallel to . In the crystal structure of salt (II), the C4H7N2 (+) cation and the NO3 (-) anion are both located on a mirror plane, leading to a statistical disorder of the methyl H atoms. The cations and anions again inter-act through bifurcated N-H?(O,O) hydrogen bonds, giving rise to the formation of chains consisting of alternating anions and cations parallel to .
Project description:The title compound, [Mn6(C7H4NO3)5(CH3CO2)2(C4H6N2)4.62(C3H7NO)1.38]·(C2H5)2O·C3H7NO·CH3OH·0.49H2O or Mn(II)(OAc)2[15-MCMn(III)N(shi)-5](Me-Im)4.62(DMF)1.38·diethyl ether·DMF·MeOH·0.49H2O (where MC is metallacrown, (-)OAc is acetate, shi(3-) is salicyl-hydroximate, Me-Im is 1-methyl-imidazole, DMF is N,N-di-methyl-formamide, and MeOH is methanol), is comprised of five Mn(III) ions in the metallacrown ring and an Mn(II) ion which is encapsulated in the central cavity. Four of the ring Mn(III) ions are six-coordinate with distorted octa-hedral geometries. Two of these Mn(III) ions have a planar configuration, while the other two Mn(III) have ? absolute stereoconfiguration. The fifth Mn(III) is five-coordinated with distorted square-pyramidal geometry. Four of the ring Mn(III) ions each bind one 1-methyl-imidazole, while the final ring Mn(III) ion binds a DMF solvent mol-ecule in an axial position and located in a trans position is either a Me-Im or a DMF mol-ecule. The occupancy ratio of Me-Im to DMF is 0.62?(2) to 0.38?(2). The central Mn(II) is seven-coordinate with a geometry best described as distorted face-capped trigonal-prismatic. DMF, diethyl ether, MeOH, and water mol-ecules are located in the inter-stitial voids between the metallacrown mol-ecules. The methanol mol-ecule is positionally disordered [0.51?(1):0.49?(1)] and associated with a partially occupied water mol-ecule [0.49?(1)]. This disorder is also associated with the positional disorder of the diethyl ether mol-ecule [0.51?(1):0.49?(1)].
Project description:The solvated title compound, [Fe(C44H28N4)(C4H6N2)(C7H7NO)]·CH2Cl2, is a porphyrin complex containing an octahedrally coordinated Fe(II) atom with 1-methylimidazole [Fe-N = 2.0651?(17)?Å] and o-nitro-sotoluene ligands at the axial positions. The o-nitro-sotoluene ligand is N-bound to iron(II) [Fe-N = 1.8406?(18)Å and Fe-N-O = 122.54?(14)°]. The axial N-Fe-N linkage is almost linear, with a bond angle of 177.15?(7)°. One phenyl group of the porphyrin ligand is disordered over two orientations in a 0.710?(3):0.290?(3) ratio. The di-chloro-methane solvent mol-ecule was severely disordered and its contribution to the scattering was removed with the SQUEEZE routine [van der Sluis & Spek (1990 ?). Acta Cryst. A46, 194-201].
Project description:In the title compound, [Fe(C48H36N4)(C4H6N2)2]ClO4·1.5C4H8O, the iron(III) metal is coordinated in a distorted octa-hedral geometry by four pyrrole N atoms of the porphyrin ligand in the equatorial plane and two N atoms of 2-methyl-imidazole ligands in the axial sites. The complex has a highly ruffled porphyrin core with mean absolute core-atom displacements C a, C b, C m and C av of 0.25?(5), 0.17?(12), 0.432?(16) and 0.25?(13)?Å, respectively. One of the four phenyl groups of the porphyrin is disordered over two sets of sites with refined occupancy ratio of 0.718?(7):0.282?(7). The mean Fe-Np (Np is a porphyrin N atom) bond length [1.975?(9)?Å] indicates the low-spin state of the iron atom. The two 2-methyl-imidazole ligands are nearly perpendicular and form a dihedral angle of 86.93?(10)°. The dihedral angles between the 2-methyl-imidazole ligands and the closest Fe-Np vector are 38.04?(9) and 35.00?(7)°. In the crystal, the complex cations inter-act with the perchlorate anions through N-H?O hydrogen bonds, forming chains running parallel to .
Project description:The title complex, [Fe(C44H28N4)(C5H8N2)2]·C4H8O, possesses inversion symmetry with the iron(II) atom located on a center of symmetry. The metal atom is coordinated in a symmetric octa-hedral geometry by four pyrrole N atoms of the porphyrin ligand in the equatorial plane and two N atoms of 1-ethyl-imidazole ligands in the axial sites; the complex crystallizes with a tetra-hydro-furan solvent mol-ecule. The average Fe-Np (Np is a porphyrin N atom) bond length is 1.995?(3)?Å and the axial Fe-NIm (NIm is an imidazole N atom) bond length is 1.994?(2)?Å. The two 1-ethyl-imidazole ligands are mutually parallel. The dihedral angle between the 1-ethyl-imidazole plane and the plane of the closest Fe-Np vector is 24.5°. In the crystal, the only significant inter-molecular inter-actions present are C-H?? inter-actions.
Project description:The whole mol-ecule of the title compound, [NiCl2(C3H4N2)2(NH3)2], is generated by inversion symmetry. The Ni(II) ion, which is located on an inversion center, has a distorted octa-hedral coordination environment and is surrounded by two ammine N atoms and two Cl atoms in the equatorial plane, with two N atoms of two imidazole groups occupying the axial positions. The imidazole ring makes a dihedral angle of 81.78?(18)° with the Ni/N/Cl equatorial plane. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked via N-H?Cl hydrogen bonds and C-H?? inter-actions, forming a three-dimensional network.
Project description:The title compounds, [FeCl2(C15H20N2)4], (I), [FeBr2(C15H20N2)4], (II), and [FeBr2(C15H20N2)4]·2C4H10O, (IIb), respectively, all have triclinic symmetry, with (I) and (II) being isotypic. The Fe(II) atoms in each of the structures are located on an inversion center. They have octa-hedral FeX 2N4 (X = Cl and Br, respectively) coordination spheres with the Fe(II) atom coordinated by two halide ions in a trans arrangement and by the tertiary N atom of four aryl-imidazole ligands [1-(2,6-diiso-propyl-phen-yl)-1H-imidazole] in the equatorial plane. In the two independent ligands, the benzene and imidazole rings are almost normal to one another, with dihedral angles of 88.19?(15) and 79.26?(14)° in (I), 87.0?(3) and 79.2?(3)° in (II), and 84.71?(11) and 80.58?(13)° in (IIb). The imidazole rings of the two independent ligand mol-ecules are inclined to one another by 70.04?(15), 69.3?(3) and 61.55?(12)° in (I), (II) and (IIb), respectively, while the benzene rings are inclined to one another by 82.83?(13), 83.0?(2) and 88.16?(12)°, respectively. The various dihedral angles involving (IIb) differ slightly from those in (I) and (II), probably due to the close proximity of the diethyl ether solvent mol-ecule. There are a number of C-H?halide hydrogen bonds in each mol-ecule involving the CH groups of the imidazole units. In the structures of compounds (I) and (II), mol-ecules are linked via pairs of C-H?halogen hydrogen bonds, forming chains along the a axis that enclose R 2 (2)(12) ring motifs. The chains are linked by C-H?? inter-actions, forming sheets parallel to (001). In the structure of compound (IIb), mol-ecules are linked via pairs of C-H?halogen hydrogen bonds, forming chains along the b axis, and the diethyl ether solvent mol-ecules are attached to the chains via C-H?O hydrogen bonds. The chains are linked by C-H?? inter-actions, forming sheets parallel to (001). In (I) and (II), the methyl groups of an isopropyl group are disordered over two positions [occupancy ratio = 0.727?(13):0.273?(13) and 0.5:0.5, respectively]. In (IIb), one of the ethyl groups of the diethyl ether solvent mol-ecule is disordered over two positions (occupancy ratio = 0.5:0.5).
Project description:In the title compound, [Cd(C(8)H(7)O(2))(2)(C(3)H(4)N(2))(2)(H(2)O)], the Cd(II) atom is coordinated by four carboxyl-ate O atoms from two bidentate chelating 4-methyl-benzoate ligands, two N atoms from two imidazole ligands and one water mol-ecule in a distorted penta-gonal bipyramidal geometry. Inter-molecular O-H?O hydrogen bonds between the coordinated water mol-ecule and the carboxyl-ate O atoms of 4-methyl-benzoate lead to an infinite chain. These chains are further self-assembled into a two-dimensional layer through N-H?O hydrogen bonds between the imidazole ligands and carboxyl-ate groups. One of the imidazole ligands is disordered over two positions with site-occupancy factors of 0.737?(4) and 0.263?(4).
Project description:The title compound [Mn6(C7H4NO3)5(C3H5O2)2(C4H6N2)4.17(C3H7NO)1.83]·0.24C3H7NO·1.36CH3OH or Mn(II)(C3H5O2)2[15-MCMn(III)N(shi)-5](Me-Im)4.17(DMF)1.83·0.24DMF·1.36MeOH (where MC is metallacrown, shi(3-) is salicyl-hydroximate, Me-Im is 1-methyl-imidazole, DMF is N,N-di-methyl-formamide, and MeOH is methanol), contains an Mn(II) ion in the central cavity and five Mn(III) ions in the MC ring. The central Mn(II) ion is seven coordinate and has a geometry best described as distorted face-capped trigonal prismatic with ? angles of 6.13, 10.36, and 11.73° and an estimated average s/h ratio of 1.03±0.11. Four of the ring Mn(III) ions are six coordinate with distorted octa-hedral geometries. Two of the Mn(III) ions have ? absolute stereoconfiguration, while the other two Mn(III) ions have a planar configuration. The fifth Mn(III) ion is five coordinate and has a distorted square pyramidal geometry with ? = 0.20. Three of the Mn(III) ions bind one 1-methyl-imidazole ligand. Two of the ring Mn(III) ions have a 1-methyl-imidazole and a DMF disordered over a coordination site. For one of the ring Mn(III) ions, the occupancy ratio of the ligands refines to 0.51?(1):0.49?(1) in favor of the DMF. For the other ring Mn(III) ion, the occupancy ratio of the ligands refines to 0.68?(1):0.32?(1) in favor of the 1-methyl-imidazole. Two propionate anions serve to bridge the central Mn(II) ion between two different Mn(III) ions. The methyl groups of the bridging propionate anions are disordered over two positions. The methyl group disorder also induces disorder in the H atoms of the adjacent methyl-ene C atom to the same degree. For one of the propionate anions, the occupancy ratio refines to 0.752?(8):0.248?(8) and for the second, the occupancy ratio refines to 0.604?(6):0.396?(6). In addition, the disorder of the methyl group of the latter propionate anion is correlated with a partially occupied [0.604?(6)] methanol mol-ecule. Furthermore, a methanol mol-ecule and a DMF mol-ecule are positionally disordered in the lattice. The occupancy refines to 0.757?(7):0.243?(7) in favor of the methanol mol-ecule. Correlated to the occupancy of the methanol and DMF mol-ecules is a disordered benzene ring of one salicyl-hydroximate ligand. The benzene ring is disordered over two positions with an occupancy ratio of 0.757?(7):0.243?(7). Lastly, the two lattice methanol mol-ecules are hydrogen bonded to the 15-MC-5 mol-ecule. For the partially occupied methanol mol-ecule associated with the disordered propionate anion, the hydroxyl group of the methanol is hydrogen bonded to a carboxyl-ate O atom of the propionate anion. For the partially occupied methanol mol-ecule associated with the partially occupied lattice DMF mol-ecule, the hydroxyl group of the methanol is hydrogen bonded to the phenolate O atom of a salicyl-hydroximate ligand and to the carbonyl O atom of a coordinated DMF mol-ecule.
Project description:The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Fe(C(3)H(4)N(2))(6)]SO(4)·2C(3)H(4)N(2), contains two complex cations, two sulfate anions and four imidazole mol-ecules. In both cations, the Fe(II) atom is coordinated by six monodentate imidazole ligands and exhibits a slightly distorted octa-hedral coordination geometry. The Fe-N distances [2.184?(4)-2.218?(4)?Å] point to a high-spin state of the Fe(2+) ions. N-H?O hydrogen bonds between the ionic components generate a three-dimensional framework containing corrugated channels along , which are filled by N-H?N hydrogen-bonded imidazole chains.
