Ligand influences on homoleptic Group 12 m -terphenyl complexes

Blundell, Toby; Hastings, Fiona; Gridley, Benjamin; Moxey, Graeme; Lewis, William; Blake, Alexander J; Kays, Deborah


Three m-terphenyl ligands 2,6-Ar2C6H3 -[Ar = 2,6-Me2C6H3(2,6-Xyl); 3,5-Me2C6H3(3,5-Xyl); 2,3,4,5,6-Me5C6(Pmp)] have been used to stabilise three series of two-coordinate Group 12 diaryl complexes; (2,6-Ar2C6H3)2M [M = Zn, Cd, Hg, Ar = 2,6-Xyl 1-3, 3,5-Xyl 4-6, Pmp 7-9], where differing steric demands on the metal centres are imparted. These are the first homoleptic d-block complexes featuring any of these ligands. Complexes 1-9 have been characterised in solution and the solid state; the...[Show more]
