    • Abstract


      The reaction of aqueous cobaltous nitrate hexahydrate with the anion of succinimide (sucH) in the presence of excess ethylenediamine (en) in air results in the formation of a dinuclear complex 𝜇-peroxo-bis[bis(ethylenediamine)succinimidato-cobalt(III)] dinitrate dihydrate, 1, in good yield. Compound 1 was characterized by elemental analysis, IR, visible spectra and magnetic susceptibility studies. The explosive nature of [Co(en)2(suc)(𝜇-O2)Co(en)2(suc)](NO3)2.2H2O, 1, precluded its thermal characterization. Compound 1 crystallises in the monoclinic space group $P2_1/c$ and a half of the molecule, constitutes its asymmetric unit. In the centrosymmetric dinuclear complex 1, two Co(III) centres are linked by a planar peroxide bridge. Each cobalt atom is surrounded by four nitrogen atoms of ethylenediamine ligands, a nitrogen atom of succinimidato anion and an oxygen atom of peroxo bridge resulting in a slightly distorted {CoN5O} octahedron. Due to steric hindrance between the two Co(III) centres, the peroxide bridge is planar with a Co-O-O-Co torsion angle of 180°. The dinuclear complex cation, the nitrate anion and the lattice water are involved in three varieties of H-bonding interactions namely N-H$\cdots$O, O-H$\cdots$O and C-H$\cdots$O.
