(Pyridine-2-aldoximato-[kappa]2N,N')bis[2-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl-[kappa]2C1,N]iridium(III)

Abstract top

In the title complex, [Ir(C11H8N)2(C6H5N2O)], the octahedrally coordinated IrIII atom is bonded to two 2-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl ligands, through two phenyl C and two pydidine N atoms, and to one pyridine-2-aldoxime ligand through a pyridine N and an oxime N atom. The oxime O atom of the aldoxime unit forms intermolecular C-H...O hydrogen bonds, which result in a two-dimensional hydrogen-bonded polymeric network parallel to (100). C-H...[pi] interactions are also observed.

Comment top

Herein we describe the crystal structure of a neutral Ir(III) octahedral complex, namely [Ir(ppy)2(pyald)] (ppy = 2-phenylpyridine, pyald=2-pyridinealdoxime). The asymmetric unit is shown in Figure 2, which depicts that the Ir centre is coordinated by two 2-phenyl pyridine and one 2-pyridinealdoxime ligands. Two pyridine-N atoms from ppy moieties occupy the axial positions, whereas two phenyl-C from ppy ligands and two N atoms from the 2-pyridinealdoxime unit form the square plane. All three ligand tether the metal through five membered chelate rings, which ultimately lead to a distorted octahedral coordination geometry. The trans N1—Ir1—N2, C11—Ir1—N4 and C22—Ir1—N3 angles are 173.75 (19)°, 170.6 (2)° and 173.4 (18)° respectively ( ideal value: 180°). Corresponding cis angles show similar small deviation from 90°, for example, cis C22—Ir1—C11, C11—Ir1—N1, N4—Ir1—N3, and C11—Ir1—N3 angles are 88.4 (2)°, 80.4 (2)°, 77.15 (18)° and 95.41 (19)° respectively. The two phenylpyridine ligands are nearly perpendicular as indicated by the dihedral angle between their least square planes, 87.60 (11)°. The third ligand 2-pyridinealdoxime has a similar nearly perpendicular orientation with the adjacent 2-phenylpyridines. The dihedral angles of 2-pyridineadloxime to 2-phenylpyridines are 85.09 (11)° and 89.54 (15)°. The mean Ir—C [2.019 (4) Å] and Ir—N [2.087 (2) Å] bond distances are consistent with values reported in literature (see, Neve et al., 1999; Lamansky et al., 2001). The oxime-O of 2-pyridinealdoxime is deprotonated and remain non-coordinated. This is an expected fact for oxime ligands where the oxime-N binds a metal centre in presence of a deprotonated oxime-O (see, Godycki et al., 1953). The negative charge on the oxime-O is delocalized over the aldoxime moiety (Scheme1). This is supported by the N4—O1 [1.289 (6) Å] and C27—C28 [1.420 (8) Å] bond lengths, which clearly indicate their partial double bond character (see, Allen et al., 1987). Thus the negative charge is distributed over the pyridinealdoxime moiety through O1, N4, C28 and the pyridine ring.

The packing scheme is ruled by C—H···O hydrogen bonds (see, Desiraju,1991), which ultimately lead to the formation of a two dimensional hydrogen bonded polymeric structure (Figure 3) and weaker intermolecular C—H···π interactions (see, Ma et al., 1997). These interactions are presented in Table 1.

Experimental top

The iridium starting material [(ppy)2Ir(µ –Cl)2Ir(ppy)2, ppy = 2-phenylpyridine] was prepared by following the procedure reported in the literature (see, Nonoyama,1974). The synthetic scheme of the title complex is shown in Figure 1. The detailed synthetic procedure is as follows:

In a 100 ml round bottom flask, 2-pyridinealdoxime (266 mg, 2.18 mmol) was taken in 25 ml of 2-methoxy ethanol and added with triehtyl amine (220.6 mg, 2.18 mmol). The mixture was thoroughly mixed by stirring and added with [(ppy)2Ir(µ –Cl)2Ir(ppy)2 ] (585 mg, 0.545 mmol) starting material. The resulted mixture was refluxed under a N2 atmosphere for 18 hrs. The yellow precipitate thus formed was filtered and dried under vacuum. The complex was purified on a neutral aluminium oxide column by eluting with dichloromethane. The first yellow band was discarded as starting material and the second yellow band was collected as the title compound. The solution was evaporated and the remaining solid washed with hexane and dried under vacuum to yield an yellow powder (140 mg, 41%).

Refinement top

All the non-H atoms were refined anisotropically. The ligands H atoms were included at idealized position using riding model with C—H = 0.93 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq

Special details top

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