    • Abstract


      Thereaction of [Cp*M(𝜇-Cl)Cl]2 (M = Rh, Ir) with 2-aminopyridyl based ligands lead to the formation of mononuclear neutral complexes of general formula [Cp*MCl2(L)] {where L1= 2-aminopyridine, L2= 2-amino-3-picoline, L3= 2-amino-3-nirtopyridine, and L4= 2-amino-3-pyridine carboxyaldehyde}. The complexes have been characterized by FT-IR, UV-Vis, $^1$H-$^{13}$C NMR and mass spectroscopic methods. X-ray crystallographic studies of the complexes have shown typical piano-stool geometry around the metal centre in which 2-aminopyridyl ligand acts as an N-monodentate ligand and the amino functionality is not involved in metal coordination. The intra/intermolecular arrangement is due to hydrogen bonding.
