Abstract

The preparation and crystal structures of two oxalato-bridged Fe-II-Fe-III mixed-valence compounds, [Fe-II(bpm)(3)](2)-[Fe-2(III)(ox)(5)]. 8H(2)O (1) and Fe-II(bpm)(3)Na(H2O)(2)Fe-III(ox)(3). 4H(2)O (2) (bpm 2,2'-bipyrimidine; ox = oxalate dianion) are reported here. Complex 1 crystallizes in the triclinic system, space group P (1) over bar, with a = 10.998(2) Angstrom, b = 13.073(3) Angstrom, c = 13.308(3) Angstrom, alpha = 101.95(2)degrees, beta = 109.20(2)degrees, gamma = 99.89(2)degrees, and Z = I. Complex 2 crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group P2(1)/c, with a = 12.609(2) Angstrom, b = 19.670(5) Angstrom, c = 15.833(3) Angstrom, beta = 99.46(1)degrees, and Z = 4. The structure of complex 1 consists of centrosymmetric oxalato-bridged dinuclear high-spin iron(III) [Fe-2(ox)(5)](2-) anions, tris-chelated low-spin iron(II) [Fe(bpm)(3)](2+) cations, and lattice water molecules. The iron atoms are hexacoordinated: six oxygen atoms (iron(III)) from two bidentate and one bisbidentate oxalato ligands and six nitrogen atoms (iron(II)) from three bidentate bpm groups. The Fe(III)-O(ox) and Fe(II)-N(bpm) bond distances vary in the ranges 1.967(3)-2.099(3) and 1.967(4)-1.995(3) Angstrom, respectively. The iron(III)-iron(III) separation across the bridging oxalato is 5.449(2) Angstrom, whereas the shortest intermolecular iron(III)-iron(II) distance is 6.841(2) Angstrom. The structure of complex 2 consists of neutral heterotrinuclear Fe(bpm)(3)Na(H2O)(2)Fe(ox)(3) units and water molecules of crystallization. The tris-chelated low-spin iron(II) ([Fe(bpm)(3)](2+)) and high-spin iron(III) ([Fe(ox)(3)](3-)) entities act as bidentate ligands (through two bpm-nitrogen and two oxalato-oxygen atoms, respectively) toward the univalent sodium cation, yielding the trinuclear (bpm)(2)Fe(II)-bpm-Na(I)-ox-Fe(III)-(ox)(2) complex. Two cis-coordinated water molecules complete the distorted octahedral surrounding of the sodium atom. The ranges of the Fe(II)-N(bpm) and Fe(LII)-O(ox) bond distances [1.968(6)-1.993(5) and 1.992(6)-2.024(6) Angstrom, respectively] compare well with those observed in 1. The Na-N(bpm) bond lengths (2.548(7) and 2.677(7) Angstrom) are longer than those of Na-O(ox) (2.514(7) and 2.380(7) Angstrom) and Na-O(water) (2.334(15) and 2.356(12) Angstrom). The intramolecular Fe(II) Fe(III) separation is 6.763(2) Angstrom, whereas the shortest intermolecular Fe(II)...Fe(II) and Fe(III)...Fe(III) distances are 8.152(2) and 8.992(2) Angstrom, respectively.
