Complexes of 2-aminophenol (H2amp) and its derivatives and the crystal structure of cis-[MoO2(Hamp)2]
The new complexes cis-[MoO2(Hamp)2] and [Os(amp)3](H2amp = 2-aminophenol) have been isolated as well as cis-[MoO2(HL)2](H2L = 2-amino-4-chlorophenol or 2-amino-4-methylphenol) and [OsL3](H2L = 2-amino-4-methylphenol or 2-amino-4-tert-butylphenol). The crystal structure of cis-[MoO2(Hamp)2] has been determined. The crystals are orthorhombic, space group Pbna, a= 5.767(2), b= 9.833(3), c= 23.437(6)Å, Z= 4, R= 0.028 from 697 observed reflections. The ligand binds via a deprotonated oxygen and NH2. Raman, IR, and 13C NMR spectra of the complexes have been recorded.
