Fluorophosphine complexes of rhodium(I) and iridium(I): towards the design of systems with extended metal–metal interactions. The crystal structure of [{IrCl(PF3)2}2]

Abstract

A single-crystal X-ray structure determination of [{IrCl(PF3)2}2](1)[monoclinic, P21/n, a= 10.526(1), b= 10.346(2), c= 13.150(1)Å, β= 101.46(1)°, R= 0.0481] has confirmed the existence of dimeric molecules with short intra- and inter-molecular irdium–iridium contacts and infinite zigzag chains of iridium atoms. Detailed consideration of the structure allows conclusions to be drawn about the design of other fluorophosphineiridium(I) complexes with extended metal–metal interactions. These conclusions have been tested by syntheses of a variety of complexes of RhI and IrI containing the ligands PF2(NMe2), PF(O2C6H4), and OC(NMePF2)2. The complex [{IrCl[O[double bond, length half m-dash]C(NMePF2)2]}2] probably has a structure involving extended metal–metal interactions.
