Dynamic solution behaviour of metal complexes of the hexaamine cage ligand Me8tricosane

Alcock, Leighton J; Cavigliasso, German; Lawes, Douglas J; Stranger, Robert; Hook, J; Ralph, Stephen F


The solid state structures of the hexaamine cage complexes [M(Me8tricosane)]2+ (M = Zn, Cd, Hg) were previously shown to feature highly symmetric octahedral or trigonal prismatic coordination geometries. Here we show that the solution NMR spectra of each of these three complexes are far more complex than what would be expected if the solid state structures were retained after dissolution. The large numbers of resonances observed in the solution NMR spectra reflects establishment of equilibria...[Show more]
