(Received 9 December 2011; accepted 14 December 2011; online 17 December 2011)

In the title compound, [FeCl2(C34H36N4)], the FeII ion is coordinated by two Cl atoms and by two N atoms from a (1R,2R)-N,N′-bis[2-(N-methyl­anilino)benzyl­idene]cyclo­hexane-1,2-diamine ligand in a distorted tetra­hedral geometry. The mol­ecule has approximate C2 point symmetry. The dihedral angles between the phenyl and benzene rings on either side of the ligand are 64.56 (14) and 65.61 (13)°.

Comment top

Asymmetric alkene aziridination with readily available chiral diimine-based catalysts has been studied (Li, et al., 1993). Salen iron complexes were successfully applied in enantioselective oxidation of racemic benzoins (Muthupandi, et al. 2009), and iron(II) complexes with tetradentate PNNP ligands have been used as catalysts in the asymmetric hydrogenation of acetophenone (Sui-Seng, et al. 2008, 2009). Herein we report a novel chiral iron(II) complex and its molecular structure is shown in Fig. 1.

The title complex (I) possesses approximate C2 point symmetry with the FeII ion coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral geometry by two Cl atoms and by two N atoms from the imine groups of the (1R,2R)-N, N'-bis[ortho- (N-methylphenylamino)-benzylidene]-1,2- diaminocyclohexane ligand. The dihedral angles between the phenyl and benzene rings on either side of the ligand are 64.56 (14)° (C8-C13/C14-C19) and 65.61 (13)° (C22-C27C28-C33). The geometric parameters of (I) can be compared to related complexes (Bao et al. (2009); Chaggar et al. (2003).

[(1R,2R)-N,N'-Bis(2-fluorobenzylidene) cyclohexane-1,2-diamine] {L} was prepared according to reported procedure (Li et al., 1993). (1R,2R)-N,N'-Bis[ortho-(N-methylphenylamino)- benzylidene]- 1,2-diaminocyclohexane was synthesized according to the following method: A solution of nBuLi (2 mol/L in hexane, 30.0 ml, 60.0 mmol) was added to a solution of N-methylaniline (6.50 ml, 60.0 mmol) in THF (60 ml) at 195K. The mixture was allowed to warm to room temperature and stirred for 6 h. The resulting solution was transferred into a solution of {L} (9.79 g, 30.0 mmol) in THF (60 ml) at 293K. After stirring for 48 h, the reaction was quenched with H2O (20 ml). The organic phase was evaporated to dryness in vacuo to give the crude product as a yellow solid. Pure product was obtained by recrystallization from THF as yellow crystals (11.2 g, 75%) Anal. Calcd for C34H36N4 (500.29): C 81.56, H 7.25, N 11.19; Found: C 81.46, H 7.29, N 11.22%.

The title compound was synthesized according to the following method: FeCl2 (127 mg, 1 mmol) was added to a stirred MeCN solution of the ligand (500 mg, 1 mmol) at room temperature. The resulting mixture was stirred for 12 h. The product precipitated as an brown powder and was isolated by filtration (395 mg, 63%). Crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction studies were obtained from a MeCN/Et2O solution. Anal. Calcd for C34H36Cl2N4Fe (627.43): C 65.09, H 5.78, N 8.93; Found: C 65.14, H 5.69, N 8.90%.

Refinement top

The C-bound H atoms were positioned geometrically with C—H = 0.93 (aromatic and imine carbon), 0.97 (methylene) and 0.96 (methyl) Å, and allowed to ride on their parent atoms in the riding model approximation with Uiso(H) = 1.2 (1.5 for methyl) Ueq(C).

Experimental. 1H NMR (300 MHz, CDCl3, 298 K) δ (p.p.m.): 8.27 (s, 2H, CH=N), 7.89 (d, 2H, J = 9.0 Hz, ArH), 7.37 (t, 2H, J = 9.0 Hz, ArH), 7.21–7.06 (m, 10H, ArH), 6.74 (t, 2H, J = 9.0 Hz), 6.56 (d, J = 9.0 Hz, 2H), 3.27 (m, 2H, NCHCH2), 1.03 (s, 6H, NCH3), 1.75–1.37 (m, 8H,CH2).

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.
