In the title compound, [Co(C4H7N2O2)Cl2(C4H8N2O2)], the CoIII ion has a distorted octa­hedral coordination environment. The equatorial plane consists of four N atoms, two each from the dimethyl­glyoxime and dimethyl­glyoximate ligands, while the two axial positions are occupied by two chloride ions. Strong intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds are observed between the dimethyl­glyoxime and dimethyl­glyoximate ligands. Mol­ecules are linked into a chain running along the [101] direction by O—H⋯O and C—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds. The chains are cross-linked through inter­molecular C—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds.

Comment top

Dimethylglyoximatocobalt(III) complexes, generally known as cobaloximes, have been studied extensively as model compounds for vitamine-B12 (Trommel et al., 2001; Ohkubo & Fukuzumi, 2005). Most of the work on cobaloximes include electron-transfer reactions (Dayalan & Vijayaraghavan, 2001) and catalytic activity (Razavelt et al., 2005) in solution. There are few literature evidences relating the structural aspects of cobaloximes (Gupta et al., 2000; Gupta et al., 2001; Gupta et al., 2004). We report here the synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of the title compoud.

The coordination geometry around the CoIII ion can be described as a slightly distorted octahedron. The axial positions are occupied by the chloride ions. The glyoxime moieties are individually planar. The CoIII ion and the four N atoms of dimethylglyoxime ligands are approximately coplanar. The Co—N and Co—Cl bond lengths are normal (Table 1), and are comparable with the corresponding values observed in a related complex (Lee et al., 2007).

Strong intramolecular O—H···O hydrogen bonds are observed between the dimethylglyoxime and dimethylglyoximate ligands (Table 2). The crystal packing is stabilized by O—H···O and C—H···Cl hydrogen bonds. Atoms O2 and C4 of the molecule at (x, y, z) act as donors to atoms O1 and Cl1, respectively, of the molecule at (-1/2 + x, -y, -1/2 + z). These two hydrogen bonds form a chain running along the [1 0 1] direction. The chains are cross-linked through C—H···Cl intermolecular hydrogen bonds.

Experimental top

Cobalt(II) chloride hexahydrate was thoroughly grinded and exposed to microwave for 30 s. Dehydrated cobalt(II) chloride (1.3 g) was mixed with dimethyl glyoxime (2.32 g). The mixture was intimately grinded and made into a paste using acetone and exposed to microwave radiation for 60 s. The microwave treated reaction mixture was exposed to atmosphere, till it became green. The green coloured product was recrystallized from acetone. Single crystals were obtained by slow evaporation of the acetone solution.

Refinement top

All H atoms were fixed geometrically (O—H = 0.82 Å and C—H = 0.96 Å) and allowed to ride on their parent atoms, with Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(C,O).

Special details top

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
