The two most common structures for this complex include one with tetragonal elongation and one with tetragonal compression. This particular complex, which has a three unpaired electrons, is used as a spin relaxation agent to improve the sensitivity in quantitative carbon NMR spectroscopy.
The complex adopts a trigonal planar structureweakly associated into stacks. The complex catalyzes epoxidation of allylic alcohols by peroxides. This complex is a benzene-soluble, emerald green solid, which is widely employed in the preparation of Ni 0 complexes, e.
Classification by triad[ edit ] Treatment of TiCl4 with acetylacetone gives cis -TiCl2 acac 2, a red-coloured, octahedral complex with C2 symmetry: The trisacetylacetonates of the lanthanides often adopt coordination numbers above 8.
It is a configurationally labile, high-spin complex with five unpaired electrons. Some complexes are prepared by metathesis using Tl acac.
Like other compounds of the type M acac 3, this complex is chiral has a non-superimposable mirror image. Upon exposure to the atmosphere, [Ni acac 2]3 converts back to the chalky green monomeric dihydrate. Unlike the copper II derivative, copper I acetylacetonate is an air-sensitive oligomeric species.
This complex features the vanadyl IV group, and many related compounds are known. The complex TiCl2 acac 2 is fluxional in solution, the NMR spectrum exhibiting a single methyl resonance at room temperature. The effective moment rises to 4. Ru acac 2 alkene 2. The molecule is square pyramidal, with idealized C2v symmetry.
It is occasionally used as a catalyst precursor. Variants of acac[ edit ] Many variants of acetylacetonates are well developed. The effects of the tetragonal elongation are noticeably more significant than the effects of the tetragonal compression.
It is available commercially, catalyzes coupling and carbene transfer reactions. Its distorted octahedral structure reflects geometric distortions due to the Jahn—Teller effect. Many such complexes have been resolved, but the premier example is Co acac 3.
Like most such compounds, it is highly soluble in nonpolar organic solvents. Ir acac 3 and Rh acac 3 are known.
Hafnium acetylacetonate and zirconium acetylacetonate adopt square antiprismatic structures. Water can serve as a Lewis base to give the octahedral adduct [Ni acac 2 H2O 2]. Reduction of this Ru III derivative in the presence of other ligands affords mixed ligand complexes, e.
Like iron, Ru III forms a very stable tris acetylacetonate. It is employed to catalyze Michael additions. Vanadium III acetylacetonate is a dark-brown solid.
The anhydrous form exists as the tetramer [Co acac 2]4.
Hexafluoroacetylacetonates and trifluoroacetylacetonates form complexes that are often structurally related to regular acetylacetonates, but are more Lewis acidic and more volatile. A ball-and-stick model of VO acac 2 Vanadyl acetylacetonate is a blue complex with the formula V O acac 2.
It is isomorphous with Pd acac 2 and Cu acac 2. Both oxygen centres bind to the metal to form a six-membered chelate ring. For the elongation, two Mn—O bonds are 2.In this lab, Co(acac·NO2)3 is synthesized using the Co(acac)3 complex produced in Experiment 2.
The Co(acac)3 complex is used as a reagent instead of acacH because acacH cannot be directly converted to 3-nitroacetylacetone.
Since Co(acac)3 is not stable in HNO3, Cu(NO3)2 and acetic anhydride are. In this lab, Co(acac·NO2)3 is synthesized using the Co(acac)3 complex produced in Experiment 2. The Co(acac)3 complex is used as a reagent instead of acacH because acacH cannot be directly converted to 3-nitroacetylacetone.
