Exogenous bridge and tautomer effects on magnetic interaction of binuclear copper(II) complexes of μ-phenolato Schiff bases
<正> Four enol-form binuclear copper complexes with different exogenous bridges, [Cu2(L)(μ-Cl)] (1), [Cu(L)(μ-N3)]· DMF (2), [Cu2(L)(μ-OCH3)] (3) and [Cu2(L)(μ-C3H3N2)]· 1/2C2H5OH (4), where L is the trivalence anion of binucleating ligand 2,6-diformyl-4-methylphenol di(tenzoylhydrazone), have been synthesized and characterized. Crystal data for complex (3) are as follows: space group P1- , a=0.8294(1), 6=0.9333(3), c= 1.473 6(6) nm, α=79.51(3)°, β=80.93(2)°,γ=81.32(2)°, Z=1. The magnetic measurements indicated that the effect of exogenous bridging ligands on magnetic interaction is corresponding to that in spectrochemical series. The effect of enol- and keto-form tautomer on magnetic interaction was explained from the point of view of structural factors and electron effects by using molecular mechanks and quantum chemistry calculations.
