Decarbonylation Reaction of [Os3(CO)10(μ-H)(μ-SN2C4H5)]: X-ray Structures of the Two Isomers of [Os3(CO)9(μ-H)(μ3-η2-SN2C4H5)]
Journal of Chemical Crystallography
The thermal reaction of [Os3(CO)10(μ-H)(μ-SN2C4H5)] (1) at 110 °C afforded the new compound [Os3(CO)9(μ-H)(μ 3-η 2-SN2C4H5)] (2) in 84% yield. Compound 2 exists as two isomers, which differ in the disposition of the bridging hydride ligand. Both of the isomers of 2 have been characterized by a combination of elemental analysis, infrared and 1H NMR spectroscopic data together with single crystal X-ray crystallography. The isomers crystallize together in the triclinic space group P-1 with a = 10.4775(2), b = 13.3056(3), c = 15.0325(3) Å, α = 110.8890(10), β = 99.3880(10), γ = 96.1620(10)°, Z = 2 and V = 1900.31(7) Å3.
