Distorted octa­hedral environments in tri­carbonyl­rhenium(I) complexes of 5-[2-(2,4,6-tri­methyl­phenyl)diazen-1-yl]quinolin-8-olate and 5,7-bis­[2-(2-methyl­phenyl)diazen-1-yl]quinolin-8-olate

Abstract: The ReI centres of two ReI-tricarbonyl complexes, viz. tricarbonyl(pyridine-[kappa]N){5-[2-(2,4,6-tri­methyl­phenyl)diazen-1-yl]quinolin-8-olato-[kappa]2N1,O}rhenium(I), [Re(C23H21N4O)(CO)3], (I), and {5,7-bis­[2-(2-methylphenyl)diazen-1-yl]quino­lin-8-ol­ato-[kappa]2N1,O}tricarbonyl(pyridine-[kappa]N)rhenium(I), [Re(C28H23N6O)(CO)3], (II), are facially surrounded by three carbonyl ligands, a pyridine ligand and either a 5-[2-(2,4,6-tri­methyl­phenyl)diazen-1-yl]quinolin-8-olate [in (I)] or a 5,7-bis­[2-(2-methyl­phenyl)diazen-1-yl]quinolin-8-olate [in (II)] ligand, in a slightly distorted octa­hedral environment. The crystal structure of (I) is stabilized by two inter­molecular C-H...O inter­actions and that of (II) is stabilized by three inter­molecular C-H...O hydrogen-bonding inter­actions.
