Synthesis, spectra and crystal structures of complexes of ambidentate C6H5C(O)C(NO)CN-
Compounds of NiII, CuII, PbII, AgI, TlI, SnIV and SbV with the oxime C6H5C(O)C(NOH)CN (HL) were obtained from water, alcohol or acetonitrile solutions. The copper(II) complexes have been prepared in high yields using metallic copper powder. The compounds were characterized by IR, UV/VIS spectroscopy, magnetochemistry and X-ray analysis. The crystal and molecular structures of [CuL2(H2O)] and [CuL2(4-mpy)2] (4-mpy = 4-methylpyridine) have been determined. In both complexes the anions adopt a cis-anti conformation, and the CuII is five-co-ordinated. The wide variety of co-ordination modes exhibited by the oximate are reviewed and discussed.
