Abstract

The syntheses of Na(Ttt(Me)) (), K(Ttt(Me)) (), K(Btt(Me)) (), and Na(Btt(Ph)) () are reported, where (Ttt(Me))(-) and (Btt(R))(-) (R = Me, Ph) are tri- and di-substituted boron-centered soft ligands; they were produced by the reaction of NaBH4 and KBH4 with the corresponding tetrazole heterocycles: 1-methyl-5-thiotetrazole (L(1)H) and 1-phenyl-5-thiotetrazole (L(2)H). The syntheses of Na(Ttt(Me)) () and K(Ttt(Me)) () were carried out following Trofimenko's protocol. The anion (Ttt(Me))(-) is a typical Janus scorpionate ligand. Na(Ttt(Me)) () and Na(Btt(Ph)) () were reacted with Bi(CH3COO)3 to observe the coordination pattern of these ligands towards bismuth ions. These reactions afforded the complexes [Bi(Ttt(Me))2(CH3COO)] (), [Bi(L(2))2]2 (, ) and [Bi(L(2))3] (). The products were characterized by NMR spectroscopy, elemental analyses and mass spectrometry. Solid state structures were determined by X-ray diffraction of single crystals of , , , , , , and . M(Ttt(Me)) (M = Na (), K ()) and K(Btt(Me)) () exhibit sheet-like structures. The alkali metal complexes dissociate in solution as observed in (1)H, (13)C NMR and (1)H diffusion NMR experiments. Negative mode ESI-MS data also indicate the presence of monomers. Both the sodium salts of (Ttt(Me))(-) and (Btt(Ph))(-) as well as the Bi complexes and were investigated by absorption and emission spectroscopy.
