Coordination Chemistry
The 8th International Conference on Coordination Chemistry
was organized by the Verein Osterreichischer Chemiker
( A . Maschka) and was held in Vienna (Austria) from September 7th to 1 lth, 1964 under the chairmanship of V . Gritmonn. There were 850 participants from 34 countries, and the
155 lectures and discussions were dedicated to three major
problems: the nature of the chemical bond in coordination
compounds, novel coordination compounds, and new results
and methods in coordination chemistry in solution [I].
P l e n a r y L e c t u r e s [2]:
New Approaches to the Theory of Complex Ions and
Their Physical Foundations
H . Hrrrrrnanrt, Frankfurt/Main (Germany)
A “united atom model” for complex compounds has been
developed which affords information beyond the limitations
of the ligand field theory (crystal field theory) with reasonable
calculatory effort, provided the mathematical operations are
carried out precisely, and which is still applicable even when
MO-LCAO calculations fail owing to non-orthogonality of
the functions belonging to the various centers involved. I n this
model, use is made of hydrogen-like single-center functions
which correspond in their symmetry and in the nature and
number of their nodal surfaces to MO-LCAO multicenter
functions. I n the Hamiltonian operator, a term c/r2 is
included for correction; the only parameters used are a
variation parameter (Zeffective) a n d a free parameter (c in
the term c/r2). This model gives very close agreement with
experimental data for Ti(Il1) and V(II1) complexes.
[W2Clo]3- since the W--W distance (2.40 A) here is much
shorter than in tungsten metal (2.74 A). M-M quadruple
bonds even occur in [Cr(CH3C00)212 and in the
diagmagnetic ion [RezC18]2-, where the Re-Re distance
(2.27 A) is extremely short and overlap of d,z (= s),dx, and
d,, (= x), and d,, (= 6 ) orbitals occurs.
The number of compounds with a-M-M bonds between two
different metals is still relatively small. The combinations
observed are V-Au, W-Mo, W-Au, Mo-Fe, Mn-Re,
Mn-Fe, Mn-Co, Mn-Cu, Mn-Au, Fe-Co, Fe-Ni, Fe-Cu,
Fe-Ag, Fe-Au, Fe-Hg, Co-Cu, Co-Ag, Co-Au, Rh-Hg,
Ir-Hg, Pd-Pt, and Pt-Cu. Atoms with a d*osl configuration
form particularly strong bonds. Thus, the bond energy for
Au-Au is 51.5 kcal/mole, for Cu-Au 54.5, for Ag-Au 47.6,
for Cr-Au 50.4, and for Sn-Au 57.5 kcal/mole. a-Metalmetal bonds can be strongly influenced by back-donation
from the metals to ligands and from ligands to the metals, by
7r-M-M bonds, by repulsion effects from non-bonding
orbitals, and by steric requirements. Metal-metal bonds are
best recognized by combination of Raman and infrared
spectroscopy (M-M frequencies lie below 200 cm-I), X-ray
structural analysis, and magnetic measurements. There is
considerable variance in the lengths of the bonds observed to
date for individual elements depending o n the strengths of
the bonds in question.

Metal-Metal Interactions in Coordination Compounds
L. Lewis, Manchester (England)
Compounds with metal-metal bonds between the same
elements have so far been found foi all transition elements
with the exceptions of zinc and metals of the scandium group.
Here the elements occur in any oxidation state from + 5 to -1
and with electronic configurations (of the electrons not
bonded to ligands or anions) dl-dl to d9-d9 and s1-s’;
d6--d6 is never observed. They also occur in the most diversiCS

with q u a regici, the complex is converted without decomposition into [(R3N)2BHCI]@. Its salts decompose according
to Equation (c) below 180°C in the presence of small,

greater in the second and third periods of transition elements
as well as in higher groups of transition elements and at
lower states of oxidation of the elements. Frequently there
are ligand bridges in addition to the M-M bonds. Occasionally structural units are observed where 3, 4, 5, or 6 metal
atoms are intercombined and remain together even in solution. Thus, for example, there are always 3 atoms of rhenium
at the corners of the equilateral triangle in the entities

a-Perfluoroalkylmetal complexes are generally very stable
and have confirmed the theoretical predictions by Orgel that
additional CO valence frequencies should appear in the
infrared spectra of carbonyl complexes with distorted symmetry owing to splitting of the E bands and appearance of
an additional B1 band.
The anions (C7H502)’ ( I ) and (CgHllN2)O (2) derived from
tropolone and its methylaminomethylimino derivative, respectively, give rise to pseudotetrahedral (D2d) cations
(C7H502)2B@and (CgHllN2)2B@.The salt (C7H502)~BeBre
is a strong 1 : 1 electrolyte, (C9HllN2)2B@OHe is a strong
base. Salts of the pseudo-octahedral ions (CgHllN2)3EI@with
El = Si, Ge, or Sn are also strong electrolytes. On the other
hand, (C7H502)3SnCI and (C7H502)3SnCeH5 - which can be
sublimed - are non-electrolytes with seven-coordinated t i n .
Experiments with ISOH have revealed that hydrolysis of
(C7H502)3EIQ proceeds primarily by substitution on the
ligands and not by attack of the central atom. Other ions
produced included (C7H502)3P2^ (from PC15 and 3 C7H602),
(C,H502)2As(OH)? and the eightfold coordinated compounds (C7H502)4Nb@Clo and (C7H502)4Ta@CIO. Hydrolysis of (C7H.j02)4Nb0 yields (C7H502)3NbO, but
(C7H502)4Taa is not markedly hydrolysed even at 140 “C.
The Role of Organometallic Compounds in the
Development of Coordination Chemistry
F. G. A . Stone, Bristol (England)
Starting from r-C5H5V(C0)4, Fe(C0)5, HMn(C0)5, and
NaMn(CO)5, complex compounds containing metal-carbon
bonds were prepared whose investigation led to the discovery of novel classes of compounds and which have brought
decisive advances in the development of coordination
chemistry and organometallic chemistry. Thus, C5HsV(C0)4
reacts with cycloheptatriene to give a T;-aromatic complex
( C ~ H ~ ) V ( C ~ in
H Swhich
V has the oxidation state zero. The
weakly paramagnetic compound [n-CgHsV(SCH3)212, which
is also prepared via C5HsV(C0)4, is a binuclear complex
with four S(CH3) bridges and strong V-V bonds. Paramagnetism occurs within the thermic range. Iron pentacarbonyl is substituted even at room temperature according
to Equation (f) to giveo-perfluoroalkyliron complexes (n = 1,
2, or 3 ) .
Intermediates in the Electrode Reactions of
Coordination Compounds
A . A . VICek, Prague (Czechoslovakia)
Redox processes at inert polarized electrodes differ from
those occurring with redox reagents in homogenous solution.
They sometimes take a different course, and in the case of
complex ions, often proceed via a number of chemical transformations not occasioned by redox processes, e.g. alterations
of the type or number of ligands attached to the complex.
+ D; +
+ .. ..D,
. . . DZ
Only the particle with the greatest redox activity (Dn) reacts
at the electrode. If the rates of the subsequent chemical
transformations D, + DE are slow, it is possible to detect
otherwise unrecognizable intermediates by polarography at a
dropping mercury electrode and even occasionally to prepare
the species by electrolysis. Thus, [Mn(dipy)3]2? is reduced at
-1.5 volt in 1 M alcoholic LiCl to stable [Mn(dipy)3]Q,which
had hitherto never been isolated in the form of salts; beyond
- 1.6 volt reduction of the dipyridyI ligands begins. On homogeneous reduction in aqueous systems, [Ni(CN)4]23 leads to
[Ni2(CN)#”, and in liquid ammonia to [Ni(CN)4]4”. It can
be concluded from electrode processes that it is always the
complex of nickel with the oxidation state zero that is formed
first and that this is rapidly oxidized by water to give
[Ni2(cN)6]4e. The primary product of electrode reduction
of [Cr(CN)5NO]30 is [Cr(CN)5N0]4@,which can be isolated
as such by electrolysis in 0.1 M NaOH; however, below
p H 9.5 the species is decomposed by addition of two protons
or because further reduction occurs. Rapid oxidation of
[Co(dipy)3]3 in the presence of catalytic amounts of
[Cr(CN)~N0133in homogeneous solution proceeds via the
steps shown in Equations (h) and (i).

B. J. A y le ft, London (England) reported on silyl iodide
addition products, e.g . H&I(py)z and HjSiI(dipy), and

Marburg/Lahn (Germany) in compounds of the types
[-(R3Si)O-AIR'2-12, Na[R'*AI(OSiRj)2], and K[Ga(OSiR3)41;
he also succeeded in preparing complexes of lithium with the

M[Li(OSiR3)2], where M = Na (m.p. 233-235'C) and K
(m. p. 258-262 "C). H . Burger, Graz (Austria) investigated
transition metal bistrimethylsilylamides M [N(SiR3)2In,where
M = Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, or Hg, which
are mostly intensely colored liquids or crystals and are
distillable or sublimate. From their infrared spectra and
behavior toward Lewis bases it can be seen when and whether
the lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen form x-bonds with
the silicon or with the metal atom. Tetra- and pentafluoroorganylsilicates such as [(C2H5)4N] [CH3SiF4], K2[CH3SiF5Ir
and (NH4)4[F5Si-CHCl-SiF5]
were prepared for the first
time by R . Mul/er, Dresden-Radebeul (Germany) and are
suitable as intermediates for separating methylchlorosilanes

the production of organomercury compounds. M. Onyszchuk, Montreal (Canada) managed to add two oxa rings

I(R2PCH2CH2PR&ReX2]GXs [E. S . Stern, Runcorn (England)] or Ni[tP(OCH2)3C-CH3]4 [J. G. Verknde, Ames, Iowa
(U.S.A.)] were obtained. K . Issleib, Halle/Saale (Germany)
synthesized such unusual compounds as P[FeP(C6H5)2]3,
P[Ti(PR2)213,or the cyclic complex [-Fe-PR-PR-PR-PR-]ring.
X-ray structural analysis of K4[Asp02Fs] indicated the
space group P21/n-C52h and the presence of a four-membered As0 ring [ W . Huase, Jena (Germany)]. XeF6
can be made to form complexes with Lewis acids; the
colorless solids F6XeBF3, m. p. 90 "C, F6XeAsF5, and
F&e(SbF& were isolated. They are extremely hygroscopic
and react with moisture to form highly explosive Xe03.
Structures such as F&e+ BF3, F5Xe@AsFp, and
F4Xe(FzSbF4)2 came up for consideration [ H . Selig, Argonne
111. (U.S.A.)].
W. Beck, Munich (Germany) prepared some new fulminato
complexes M(CNO), (with M-C bonds), e.g. HPt(CN0)
(PR3)2, Ni(CN0)2(PR3)2, Hg(CN0)2(PR&, the extremely
stable category of compounds (C6H5)3EI(CNO), where El =C,
Si, Ce, Sn, or Pb,and the explosive complexes(CH3)2TI(CNO)
and (C3H7)3Pb(CNO). G. W. A . Fuwles, Southampton
(England) reported o n addition compounds of the type
X4TiL2, X3TiL2, and C13VL2 in which X = C1 or Br, L = SRp,
and R = CH3, C2H5, or (CH&CH-. J. C. Curter, Pittsburgh,
Pa. (U.S.A.) obtained a labile complex (C5H&Ti(BloH13)2
from (C5H&TiC12 and NaBloH13. Dipole measurements on
the compounds [C13ReNC6H5(PR&] and [C13ReO(PR3)3]
suggested strong x-Re ~ 0 and
1 x-Re E N bonds, comparable

with C z O or ; C E N - C ~ H S[ J . Chuft, Welwyn (England)].
Fe(dipy)3 has formally iron of zero valence and is obtained
as deep green to blackcrystalsfrom thereaction of[Fe(dipy)3]lz
and LiZ(dipy) inTHF or ofFeC13 with dipyridyl and Liz(dipy);
it dissolves in benzene to give a violet solution and is very
sensitive to air and moisture [S. Herrug, Greifswald (Germany)].

Symposium on Macromolecular Compounds
The 3rd Symposium on Macromolecular Compounds took
place at Zurich (Switzerland) o n October 16th and 17th, 1964,
the main subject of this year's discussion being additives to
synthetic polymers.
From the lectures:
L. D d o g (Mainz, Germany) reported on the primary step in
autoxidation. As ageing of synthetic polymers is mainly due
to autoxidation, the initiation of this process is of interest.
The primary step consists of a direct reaction of molecular
oxygen with the organic compound. It precedes any autocatalytic oxidation which is initiated by peroxides present in
the substrate. The primary reaction could be observed by

analysing very small conversions in the autoxidation of nbutyl methacrylate and of tetralin. Some deviations from the
usual kinetic relations were found. The mechanism could be
derived from the kinetics of the autoxidation of styrene,
indene, deuterated indene, and 1 ,I-dimethylindene. The primary step of the autoxidation was found to be a dehydrogenation of the organic compound by molecular oxygen, yiedling free radicals.
H . Harrel (Troisdorf, Germany) dealt with inhibitors of the
styrene polymerization. More than 100 inhibitors (quinones
and their derivatives, nitroso compounds, phenols, amines,
and hydrazines) were tested in concentrations of 10-2 mole- %.
At 90 O C , the time of induction, i. e. the time elapsing before
polymerization 'starts, was measured in relation to the
inhibitor concentration. The results allowed some conclusions
