Abstract

Ligating properties of a tripodal, potentially tetradentate aminetris(phenol) ligand, tris(2-hydroxy-3,5-di-tert-butylbenzyl)amine, H3L, containing [N,O,O,O] donor atoms toward the vanadium ions in +III and IVoxidation states have been studied. The structures of complexes 1[LVIII(CH3OH)]0, 2[LVIV(OCH3)]0 and 3[LVIV(acac)]0 were determined by X-ray diffraction methods as having five-coordinate V(III), 1, five-coordinate non-oxo-vanadium(IV), 2, and six-coordinate non-oxo-vanadium(IV) 3, respectively. Compounds 1–3 were also studied with electrochemical methods, variable-temperature (2–295 K) magnetic susceptibility measurements and X-band electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. The electrochemical results of 2 and 3 suggest metal-centered oxidation, i.e. the generation of a VV-phenolate species. EPR investigations indicate a (dxy)1 ground state showing a considerable increase in the in-plane π-bonding, as is expected for a phenolate ligand.
