trans-Tetraiodidobis(tri-p-tolylphosphine oxide-[kappa]O)tin(IV)

M. Hitosugi-Levesque and J. M. Tanski

Abstract top

The centrosymmetric title compound, [SnI4(C21H21OP)2], is a monomeric complex that displays a nearly octahedral coordination of tin(IV), with an Sn-O bond distance of 2.159 (2) Å and an average Sn-I bond distance of 2.79 (3) Å.

Comment top

Tin(IV) iodide may be readily prepared by oxidation of tin metal with iodine (Woollins, 2003). A relatively weak Lewis acid, SnI4 nevertheless forms complexes with phosphines and phosphine oxides (Genge et al. 1999; Davis, Clarke et al. 2006; Caldwell & Tanski, 2008). The phosphine oxide complexes are chiefly obtained by air oxidation of the phosphine ligands in the presence of the tin(IV) halide (Levason et al. 2003). The crystal and molecular structures of the bis(triphenyl phosphine oxide) adducts of SnX4, where X = F, Cl, Br and I, have all been previously reported. In the case of the fluoride, trans-[Ph3PO]2SnF4, the the phospine oxides are mutually trans (Davis, Clarke et al. 2006). The chloride, cis-[Ph3PO]2SnCl4, exhibits cis phospine oxides ligands (Tursina et al. 1985; Szymanska-Buzar et al. 2001), although it has been reported that both the cis and trans isomers are observed in solution by 31P NMR (Davis, Levason et al. 2006<). The structures of both cis-[Ph3PO]2SnBr4 and trans-[Ph3PO]2SnBr4 are known for the bromide (Tudela et al. 1993; Tursina, Yatsenko et al. 1986). In the structure of the iodide, the triphenyl phosphine oxide ligands of cis-[Ph3PO]2SnI4 are found to be cis (Tursina, Aslanov et al. 1986). As reported here, tri(p-tolyl) phosphine oxide results in an iodide complex wherein the phosphine oxide ligands are found to be trans.

Reaction of SnI4 with tri(p-tolyl) phosphine, (p-CH3C6H4)3P, in CHCl3 in the presence of air afforded the title complex [(p-CH3C6H4)3PO]2SnI4, (I).

Complex (I) exhibits a nearly octahedral coordination at tin, which resides on a crystallographic inversion center. The phosphine oxide ligands are mutually trans, with an Sn—O distance of 2.159 (2) Å, and Sn—I distances of 2.7674 (2) and 2.8158 (2) Å. Relevant bond lengths and angles can be found in Table 1. Despite the p-CH3 substituent and trans orientation of the phosphine oxide ligands in (I), the Sn—O and Sn—I distances in (I) are very similar to those found in cis-[Ph3PO]2SnI4, wherein the Sn—O distances are 2.15 (2) and 2.11 (2) Å, and the Sn—I distances range from 2.781 (2) to 2.816 (2) Å (Tursina, Aslanov et al. 1986).

Experimental top

Complex (I) was prepared by treating a chloroform (ca 10 ml) solution of SnI4 (626 mg, 1.00 mmol) with an excess of (p-CH3C6H4)3P (647 mg, 2.13 mmol) in the presence of air. Suitable crystals for single-crystal X-ray analysis separated as orange plates within 2 weeks at room temperature.

Refinement top

H atoms on carbon atoms were included in calculated positions using a riding model at C—H distances 0.95 and 0.98 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2 and 1.5Ueq(C) of the aryl and methyl C-atoms, respectively.

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. A suitable crystal was mounted in a nylon loop with Paratone-N cryoprotectant oil and data was collected on a Bruker APEX 2 CCD platform diffractometer. The structure was solved using direct methods and standard difference map techniques, and was refined by full-matrix least-squares procedures on F2 with SHELXTL Version 6.14 (Sheldrick, 2008). All non-hydrogen atoms were refined anisotropically. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. 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. EXTI refined to zero and was removed from the refinement.
