Concerted halogen and hydrogen bonding in [RuI2(H2dcbpy)(CO)2]⋯I2⋯(CH3OH)⋯I2⋯[RuI2(H2dcbpy)(CO)2]

Author affiliations


A new type of concerted halogen bond–hydrogen bond interaction was found in the solid state structure of [RuI2(H2dcbpy)(CO)2]⋯I2⋯(MeOH)⋯I2⋯[RuI2(H2dcbpy)(CO)2]. The iodine atoms of the two I2 molecules interact simultaneously with each other and with the OH group of methanol of crystallization. The interaction was characterized by single crystal X-ray measurements and by computational charge density analysis based on DFT calculations.
