Unusual Magnetic Properties of a Two-coordinate Heteroleptic Linear Cobalt(II) Complex
The synthesis and characterization of two-coordinate cobalt(ii) complexes CoAr′2 (1) and Ar′CoN(SiMe3)2 (2) (Ar′ = C6H3-2,6-(C6H3-2,6- iPr2)2) are reported. The magnetic data for 2 show that it has an unexpectedly high μeff of 5.65 μB whereas the bent complex 1 has a significantly lower moment. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
