{2,6-Bis[(2,6-diisopropyl-phosphan-yl)-oxy]-4-fluoro-phenyl-(3)P,C(1),P'}(1H-pyrazole-N(2))nickel(II) hexa-fluoro-phosphate. Academic Article uri icon


  • The title compound, [Ni(C(18)H(30)FO(2)P(2))(C(3)H(4)N(2))]PF(6), was prepared by halide abstraction with TlPF(6) in the presence of CH(3)CN in CDCl(3) from the respective neutral pincer chlorido analogue followed by addition of pyrazole. The PO-C-OP pincer ligand acts in typical trans-P(2) tridentate fashion to generate a distorted square-planar nickel structure. The Ni-N(pyrazole) distance is 1.925(2) and the plane of the pyrazole ligand is rotated 56.2(1) relative to the approximate square plane surrounding the Ni(II) center in which the pyrazole is bound to the Ni(II) atom through its sp(2)-hybridized N atom. This Ni-N distance is similar to bond lengths in the other reported Ni(II) pincer-ligand square-planar pyrazole complex structures; however, its dihedral angle is significantly larger than any of those for the latter set of pyrazole complexes.
