Abstract

The product obtained directly from the standard reaction to produce Werner's complex cis-[CoBr(NH3)(en)2]Br2 is shown, via structure determination from powder X-ray diffraction data, to be a racemic crystalline phase; implications of this observation in relation to previous reports that this reaction leads to significant enantiomeric excesses are discussed.
