Abstract

Twenty-two n-butyltin(IV) and t-butyltin(IV) complexes of ligands containing an -OH (-C=O) group or -OH and -COOH groups and an aromatic {N} donor atom were prepared by metathetical reactions. On the basis of the FT-IR and Mossbauer spectroscopic data, molecular structures were assigned to these compounds. The binding sites of the ligands were identified by means of FT-IR spectroscopic measurements, and it was found that in most cases the organotin(IV) moiety reacts with the phenolic form of these ligands. In the complexes with -OH and -COOH functions, the -COOH group is coordinated to the organotin(IV) centres in a monodentate manner. The Sn-119 Mossbauer and the FT-IR studies support the formation of trigonal bipyramidal (TBP) and octahedral (Oh) molecular structures. Furthermore, X-ray diffraction analysis has been performed on the n-butyltin(IV)- and t-butyltin(IV)-8-quinol 8-olato-O,N single crystals. The hexacoordinated tin centres exhibit cis-octahedral geometry in both complexes. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
