The complete mol­ecule of the title complex, [Co(C14H9Br2FNO)2], is generated by crystallographic twofold symmetry, with the CoII atom lying on the rotation axis. The coordination of the metal atom by the two N,O-bidentate ligands results in a squashed CoN2O2 tetra­hedron. The six-membered chelate ring is an envelope, with the metal atom as the flap. The dihedral angle between the planes of the aromatic rings within each ligand is 84.1 (6)°.

Experimental top

Synthesis of the ligand 2-((E)-(4-fluorobenzylimino) methyl)-4,6-dibromophenol: 3,5-dibromo-2-hydroxybenzal dehyde and (4-fluorophenyl)methanamine (1:1) were dissolved in ethanol and the solution was refluxed for 2 h. After evaporation, a crude product was recrystallized twice from ethanol solution to give a yellow product.

1 mmol (0.77 g) of the ligand and 0.5 mmol (0.145 g) Co(NO3)2 were dissolved in ethanol and the solutions mixed and stirred for about 10 minutes. The slow vaporization of the solvent yielded after about 3 d dark red single blocks. Yield: 72.3%. Calcd. for C28H18Br4CoF2N2O2: C 40.37; H 2.42; O 3.84; N 3.36; Found: C 40.26; H 2.40; O 3.83; N 3.35%.

Refinement top

All H atoms were placed in geometrically idealized positions and constrained to ride on their parent atoms (C—H = 0.93%A) and Uiso(H) values equal to 1.2 Ueq(C).

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.
