Synthesis, structure, and kinetics and stereochemistry of base-catalyzed hydrolysis of meso - and rac -[Co 2 (tmpdtne)Cl 2 ] 4+ , bis(pentaamine) complexes devoid of deprotonatable NH centers

The bis(pentadentate) ligand tmpdtne binds two Co(II) centers, and the entity is readily oxidized to the dicobalt(III) derivative [Co 2(tmpdtne)Cl2]4+ which has been separated into two isomeric forms. NMR studies establish these as meso and rac isomers arising from the different or same absolute configurations for the asym configuration about each Co(III) center. Each dinuclear ion base hydrolyses to the dihydroxo derivative [Co2(tmpdtne)(OH)2]4+ with retained asym configurations about each...[Show more]
