      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Infrared spectral features to distinguish the different modes of hexamethylenetetramine in metal complexes have been presented. The tentative mode of metalhexamethylenetetramme bonding has been arrived at from the pattern of the twopcn bands at 1225 and 1000 cm−1. It is shown that in complexes with terminal monodentate, bidentate and tetradentate the bands show differing behaviour. Except for the splitting ofvcn bands the IR spectra are superimposable on that of the uncoordinated molecule supporting the theory that chair configuration of the uncoordinated hexamethylenetetramine is retained in all the complexes.

      Coordination compounds formed by the interaction of mercury(II) cyanide with some bidentate ligands—ethylenediamine, N,N-diethylethylenediamine, 1,3-propanediamine, 1,5-pentanediamine, 2,2′-bipyridylamine, 1,4-dioxane, morpholine, methylpyrazine, 4,4′-bipyridyl and 4,4′-bipyridyl N,N′-dioxide—have been prepared. Stoichiometries of the complexes have been established by metal, carbon and nitrogen estimations. The complexes isolated in the solid state have been characterized byir spectroscopy down to 200 cm−1 to elucidate the metal-ligand and metal-cyanide bonding modes. Tentative stereochemistries of the complexes in the solid state are discussed.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Coordination compounds of mercury(II) chloride, bromide, cyanide and thiocyanate with N-methylnicotinamide, a potentially bidentate ligand, have been prepared. The complexesisolated have 1∶1 (metal:ligand)stoichiometry. Molecular weight measurements in molten camphor indicate that the mercury (II) chloride and bromide complexes are monomeric. Based on conductance values, molecular weight determinations and infrared spectral data, it is inferred that in the solid state in all these complexes the metal ion has a coordination number three and is bonded to the N-methylnicotinamide via its pyridine ring nitrogen, and is terminally bonded to the halogen/pseudohalogens.
