Abstract

A range of six-co-ordinate bis-tripodal iron(II) chelates, [FeL2]2+, has been synthesized from iron-(II) or -(III) precursors where L = tris(pyrazol-1-yl)methane (pz)3CH, tris(pyridyl-2-yl)methane (py)3CH, bis(pyrazol-1-yl)(pyridin-2-yl)methane (pz)2(py)CH and tris(pyridin-2-yl)phosphine oxide (py)3PO. Crystal structures have been determined for three compounds and in the (pz)3CH case for two polymorphs ( and ) which were obtained in two different laboratories from iron(III) salts using different crystallisation solvents. The electronic properties of the [FeL2]2+ series have been investigated by optical spectroscopic measurements. Low-spin d6 behaviour is indicated. Magnetic and Mössbauer effect measurements on [Fe{(pz)3CH}2]2+ show that a gradual spin crossover to the high-spin state occurs above 270 K, though this is far from developed at 350 K. Comparisons are made with the well studied boron ligand analogue [Fe{(pz)3BH}2], which displays similar crossover behaviour, and with bis(tridentate) ligand complexes containing the ligand 1,4,7-triazacyclononane.
