Tris(thio­cyanato-κN)tris­­(tri­phenyl­phosphine oxide-κO)europium(III)–(nitrato-κ2O,O′)bis­­(thio­cyanato-κN)tris­­(tri­phenyl­phosphine oxide-κO)europium(III) (1/1)

The title co-crystal, [Eu(NCS)3(C18H15OP)3][Eu(NCS)2(NO3)(C18H15OP)3], contains two distinct neutral complexes. Each complex has threefold symmetry about its central Eu3+ ion. As a result, the nitrate-containing mol­ecule contains disorder of its bidentate nitrate and two N-bound thio­cyanate anions, while the [Eu(NCS)3(OPPh3)3] complex is fully ordered. There is a weak ππ stacking inter­action between the phenyl rings of the two mol­ecules [centroid–centroid distance = 4.138 (4) Å].

Comment top

From previous studies, it has been known that lanthanide triphenylphosphine oxide complexes can be prepared with a number of anions including nitrate (Cousins & Hart, 1967; Long et al., 1999), thiocyanate (Cousins & Hart, 1968; Feazell et al., 2004), bromide (Bowden et al., 2010), trifluoromethanesulfonate (Berthet et al., 2003), and iodide (Berthet et al., 2003). The title compound, [Eu(OPPh3)3(SCN)3][Eu(OPPh3)3(SCN)2NO3], is of particular interest because of the anion disorder in one of the two neutral molecules in this co-crystal. There are two crystallographically unique europium(III) sites in the structure, one at the center of each neutral complex, [Eu(OPPh3)3(SCN)3] and [Eu(OPPh3)3(SCN)2NO3], as shown in Fig. 1. Each complex has threefold symmetry and therefore the two thiocyanato and one bidentate nitrate anions are disordered over the three positions in the latter. In [Eu(OPPh3)3(SCN)3], the three triphenylphosphine oxide ligands and three thiocyanto anions are found in a fac arrangement. The isolation of the mixed-anion system is interesting from a coordinating viewpoint, as the thiocyanato displays a monodentate (kN) coordination while the nitrato is bidentate (κ2O,O'). The thiocyanato-kN coordination is also observed in previous lanthanide complexes, such as [Nd(OPPh3)4(SCN)3] (Feazell et al., 2004), likely due to the hard nature of the Ln(III) ions. Also of note is the fact that the title compound contains a 1:3 ratio of Eu(III) to phosphine oxide in both of its complexes, whereas with the larger Nd(III) ion, four triphenylphosphine ligands coordinate. Regarding intermolecular interactions, the title compound contains one weak π-stacking interaction, with plane-to-centroid distances of 3.529 (8) and 3.841 (5) Å, between adjacent rings of the two complexes as illustrated in Fig. 1.

It should be noted that the stoichiometry of the reaction conditions to prepare the title compound were not rigorously controlled and it is likely that the introduced nitrate is a result of a slightly less than 1:3 ratio of Eu(III) to KSCN.

Experimental top

Ethanol solutions of europium(III) nitrate hydrate (~1 mmol) and KSCN (~3 mmol) were combined. The resultant solution was decanted from the KNO3 precipitate. This solution was then mixed with an ethanol solution of triphenylphosphine oxide (~4 mmol). Within one hour, the colorless crystals suitable for the X-ray analysis were isolated.

Refinement top

H-atoms were placed in calculated positions and allowed to ride during subsequent refinement, with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) and C—H distances of 0.95 Å.

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 > 2σ(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.
