Spontaneous enanti-omorphism in poly-phased alkaline salts of tris-(oxalato)ferrate(III): crystal structure of cubic NaRb5[Fe(C2O4)3]2.

ABSTRACT: We show here that the phenomenon of spontaneous resolution of enanti-omers occurs during the crystallization of the sodium and rubidium double salts of the transition metal complex tris-(oxalato)ferrate(III), namely sodium penta-rubidium bis-[tris-(oxalato)ferrate(III)], NaRb5[Fe(C2O4)3]2. One enanti-omer of the salt crystallizes in the cubic space group P4332 with Z = 4 and a Flack absolute structure parameter x = -0.01?(1) and its chiral counterpart in the space group P4132 with x = -0.00?(1). All metal ions are at crystallographic special positions: the iron(III) ion is on a threefold axis, coordinated by three oxalate dianions in a propeller-like conformation. One of the two independent rubidium ions is on a twofold axis in an eightfold coordination with neighbouring oxalate oxygen atoms, and the other one on a threefold axis in a sixfold RbO6 coordination. The sodium ion is at a site of D3 point group symmetry in a trigonal-anti-prismatic NaO6 coordination.
