Abstract

Hydrido stannyl compounds containing the η2-H-SnPh3 ligand and bis-stannyl compounds containing two SnPh3 ligands have been obtained from the photolysis of (η6-arene)Cr(CO)3 and HSnPh3. New complexes with different arenes (mesitylene, trifluorotoluene and 1,4-dimethoxybenzene) have been obtained and characterized by X-ray diffraction: (η6-C6H4(OCH3) 2)Cr(CO)2(HSnPh3) (3a), (η6-C6H4(OCH3) 2)Cr(CO)2(SnPh3)2 (3b). Structural data for 3a: monoclinic; space group P21/c (No. 14); a=17.445(3), b=9.820(3) and c=16.302(5) Å; Z=4; V=2539.2(12) Å3; 3b: monoclinic; space group P21/n (No. 14); a=13.904(3), b=20.567(5) and c=13.911(3) Å; Z=4; V=3994(2) Å3. 1H-NMR as well as X-ray provided evidence for the existence of three-center two-electron bonds in the hydrido stannyl complexes. The effects of different ligands on bonding and spectroscopic parameters were studied. Arene exchange reactions of the bis-stannyl complexes, as well as reactions of some of these compounds with P(C2H5)3 and CO, were also investigated.
