Squaric acid

Abstract

"In this study of the complexes of diketocyclobutenediol, squaric acid, the following original compounds were prepared: zirconyl squarate, indium (III) squarate; titanium (III) squarate, ruthenium (III) squarate, tungsten (VI) squarate, vanadium (III) squarate, and niobium (V) squarate, where squarate refers to the dianion of diketocyclobutenediol. Metal analyses were made on all of these except the ruthenium. However, only three of these metal analyses, namely those for titanium (III) squarate, indium (III) squarate, and zirconyl squarate, warrented [sic] further investigation. Carbon and hydrogen analyses were then made for these three compounds. From the percentage compositions, possible structures were proposed.

The tungsten, vanadium, and niobium squarates were all prepared in non-aqueous Solvent. However, the product which was obtained was contaminated with starting materials. In an effort to remove these, liquid-solid extractions were• run but with only partial success.

The proposed formulae for titanium (III) squarate is Ti4(III)(C4O4)3(OH)6•6H2O, for indium (III) squarate is In(III)C4O4(OH)•2H2O, and for zirconyl squarate is (ZrO)2C4O4(OH)2•6H2O"--Abstract, page ii.
