Trigonal prismatic metal complexes: a not so rare coordination geometry?

Alcock, Leighton J.; Cavigliasso, Germán; Willis, Anthony C.; Stranger, Robert; Ralph, Stephen F.


The solid state structures of two metal complexes of a hexaamine macrobicyclic ligand, in which the metal ion has an exact trigonal prismatic geometry, have been determined. Theoretical calculations showed this is the most stable geometry for d⁰, d¹⁰ and high spin d⁵ metal complexes of the ligand with M–N bond distances >∼2.35 Å.
