Characterization of novel vanadium(III)/acetate clusters formed in aqueous solution

Fry, Fiona; Dougan, Brenda; McCann, Nichola; Zeigler, Christopher; Brasch, Nicola


We report the first structures of simple acetate complexes of vanadium(III) formed in aqueous solution. Paramagnetic 1H NMR spectroscopy titration experiments indicate the formation of two major V(III)/acetate complexes in acidic aqueous solution for acetate/V(III) ≤4, pD 3.50. A novel tetranuclear cluster and a trinuclear cluster have been characterized by X-ray diffraction studies. Mass spectrometry measurements show these clusters retain their integrity in solution.
