Main group tellurium heterocycles anchored by a P2VN2 scaffold and their sulfur/selenium analogues
MetadataShow full item record
A comprehensive investigation of reactions of alkali-metal derivatives of the ditelluro dianion [TePV(NtBu)(μ-NtBu)]22– (L2–, E = Te) with p-block element halides produced a series of novel heterocycles incorporating P2VN2 rings, tellurium, and group 13–16 elements. The dianion engages in Te,Te′-chelation to the metal center in Ph2Ge and R2Sn (R = tBu, nBu, Ph) derivatives; similar behavior was noted for group 14 derivatives of L2– (E = S, Se). In the case of group 13 trihalides MCl3 (M = Ga, In), neutral spirocyclic complexes (L)M[NtBu(Te)PV(μ-NtBu)2PIIIN(H)tBu)] (M = Ga, In) comprised of a Te,Te′-chelated ligand L2– and a N,Te-bonded ligand resulting from loss of Te and monoprotonation were obtained. In reactions with RPCl2 (R = tBu, Ad, iPr2N) a significant difference was observed between Se- and S-containing systems. In the former case, Se,Se′-chelated derivatives were formed in high yields, whereas the N,S-chelated isomers predominated for sulfur. All complexes were characterized by multinuclear (1H, 31P, 77Se, 119Sn, and 125Te) NMR spectroscopy; this technique was especially useful in the analysis of the mixture of (L)(Se) and (L)(SeSe) obtained from the reaction of Se2Cl2 with L2– (E = Te). Single-crystal X-ray structures were obtained for the spirocyclic In complex (9), (L)GePh2 (E = Te, 10), (L)SntBu2 (E = Te, 12a); E = Se, 12aSe, E = S, 12aS) and (L)(μ-SeSe) (E = Te, 16).
