and SmA phases at noticeably lower temperatures. Thus the
monomeric complexes may be taken repeatedly to the
isotropic state without signs of decomposition.[41
Taking these two observations into account, we aimed to
synthesize ferroelectric metallomesogens with low transition
temperatures, which would allow potential applications as
both liquid crystals and in nonlinear optics.16' Our first approach was the introduction of chirality in the alkyl chains
of the above-mentioned acac complexes,[41but this did not
lead to the desired SmC* phases. However, analogues 3 a
(n = 10) and 3 b ( n = 14) with modified 8-diketonate ligands
formed a ferroelectric SmC* liquid crystalline phase at lower
temperatures, showed thermal stability under working conditions, and displayed switching times a thousand times
shorter than that of the first ferroelectric metallomesogen
The synthesis of compounds 3 from 1 (Scheme 1) proceeded via the dinuclear complexes 2. The reaction of 2a, bC5]
with thallium(1) P-diketonate['I in CH,Cl, provided the
mononuclear complexes 3a and 3b, respectively. Both complexes gave correct elemental analyses, and 'H NMR and IR
spectra in full agreement with the structure proposed.
Improved Properties of Ferroelectric Liquid
Crystals from Palladium fl-Diketone Complexes**
By Maria Jesus Baena, Pablo Espinet,* Maria Blanca Ros,
Jose Luis Serrano," and Amaya Ezcurra
Ferroelectric liquid crystals (FLCs)"] are one of the main
interests in research on liquid crystals. Although many organic mesogens are known for FLCs, there are few examples
of analogous metal complexes['. 3l and most of them have
high transition temperatures that affect their thermal stability. The first FLC metallomesogen reported,['] a dimeric
ortho-palladated azine complex (a mixture of isomers), displayed some undesirable drawbacks : high transition temperatures (K 102°C SmC* 119°C SmA 149°C I) leading to
thermal instability in the mesophases and a very long switching time (nearly one second). We then discovered that altering the highly symmetrical molecular shape of these dimers
results in lower melting
Whereas dimeric compounds [{(C-N)PdCl),] (C-N = ortho-palladated imine with
long alkyl chains) form SmA and SmC phases at high temp e r a t u r e ~monomeric
complexes [ (C-N)Pd(acac)] form N

The thermotropic behavior of the 8-diketonate derivatives
was studied by optical microscopy and differential scanning
calorimetry (DSC) at 10 Kmin-' (Table 1). Smectic A and
chiral smectic C phases were assigned on the basis of their
optical textures and confirmed by X-ray diffraction studies.
The chiral smectic C phase showed a characteristic focalconic texture, and no dechiralization lines were observed.
The ferroelectric properties of these two 8-diketonate complexes-spontaneous polarizations (P,), switching times (T~),
viscosities (y,), and tilt angles (+are
summarized in
Table 1.['I Figure 1 shows the dependence of P, and 0 of the
ferroelectric palladium complexes on temperature.
These metallomesogens have moderate P, values with
maxima at 29 and 22 nCcm-' for 3 a and 3 b respectively,
and maximum optical tilt angles very close to the optimum
tilt angle in FLCs of 22.5". It is noteworthy that the tilt
angles could not be calculated from the X-ray diffraction
measurements, as no significant differences between the layer thickness at the SmA and SmC* phases were detected.['']
The switching times of the new ferroelectric palladium
complexes 3a, b are on the order of milliseconds. Although
this is noticeably slower than the switching times of typical
organic FLCs (microseconds), these new complexes switch
three orders of magnitude faster than the first palladium

The dielectric behavior of 3a, b was also studied a t different frequencies (Fig. 2) by using a method described else"] The SmC* phase is characterized, as usual, by
an additional contribution to E', which is mainly due to the
helical structure. This additional contribution decreases and
finally disappears when the frequency increases, as the responsible mechanism relaxes.
It is worth noting that none of the Schiff bases used as
ligands are liquid crystals ( l a , C-I 60.3"C and l b , C-I
44.3 "C). The ferroelectric behavior of these chiral organic
compounds was evaluated in 15% binary mixtures['41 in
which the SmC* phase was induced. As can be seen in Table 2,
the PJsinQ values extrapolated to 100% 1 a and 1 b are 77 and
64 nCcm-*, respectively, at temperatures 10 K below the
SmA-SmC* transition of the corresponding binary mixture.
If we compare the PJsinO values of compounds 1 and 3
(data independent of T ) , it seems that the P, values of the
chiral organic ligands slightly decrease on complexation.

misleading effect and further studies will be needed before
any conclusions about the effect of the metal atom can be

in 20 mL of CH'CI, was added a stoichiometric amount of thallium ,&diketonate. A white precipitate of TIC1 immediately formed. After stirring at room

Confirmation of a Hypothesis
By Huns Jiirgen Bestmum,* Dariusch Hadawi,
Harald Behl, Matthias Bremer, and Frank Humpel
Different hypotheses have been put forth for the formation of fullerenes. According to one proposal, for example,
small carbon units arise from C , and grow into long chains,
which in turn then form rings.['.21 The fragmentation of
fullerenes apparently proceeds by the continuous cleavage of
C, units.I3I C, is found in interstellar space.141The chemical
reactivity of short-lived C , , C,, C,, and C, is being investiThe question of whether
gated in particular by Skell et al. .Is1
these small, highly reactive species can be stabilized can be
answered as follows:[61In hexaphenylcarbodiphosphorane
1, a compound known for many years, a C, unit is stabilized
by two triphenylphosphane donor molecules.[71In complex
2, which has a betaine structure, stabilized C, was prepared
by attaching a donor molecule (tertiary phosphane) to one C
atom and an acceptor molecule (borane) to the other C
that C, should also be stabilized by
two donor molecules in 3 and C, with a donor molecule and
an acceptor molecule at either end of the C, chain as in 4.We
report here on our verification of this postulate.

A compound of type 4 could be prepared quite easily,
since its synthesis follows that of 2. Treatment of diacetylene
5F8Iwith ethylmagnesium bromide (6) provided the Grignard
compound 7, which was allowed to react with chlorodiphenylphosphane (8) to give the light-sensitive butadiynyldiphenylphosphane( 9 ) . L 9 3 O1 The reaction of 9 with
butyllithium (10) in T H F provided the corresponding Li
which was converted into the borate comcompound 11,[111
plex 13 by treatment with tribenzylborane (12).["' The reaction of 13 with methyl iodide led to the desired product,
(15).['31The crystals that formed from the reaction mixture
were recrystallized from dimethylformamide. They are colorless, light sensitive, and can be stored in a refrigerator only
for a limited time. The spectroscopic data of 15 are listed in
the reference^."^] Two C=C stretching bands are found in
the IR spectrum. In the I3C spectra the values of the coupling constants J(P,C) decrease as expected from C, to C,
(Ca: 'J(P,C) = 193.8 Hz, C,: 'J(P,C) = 38.1 Hz); C, does
not couple with the P atom. The signal for C, cannot be
recognized due to the effects of the quadrupole moment of
the neighboring B atom, similar to the case for compounds
of type 2.@'The positions of the 31P NMR and "B NMR
signals indicate that both atoms are tetracoordinate, as in 2.
Recrystallization of 15 from dimethylformamide provided
crystals suitable for an X-ray structure determination; the
resulting structure is shown in Figure
The solvent
dimethylformamide is included in the crystal lattice. The
diacetylene character of the betaine compound is apparent.
The distances between C1 and C2, and C3 and C4 (120.5(6)
and 121.1(7) pm, respectively) correspond to those of triple
bonds. The C2-C3 separation, 136.1(6) pm, is in accord
with that of a single bond between two sp-hybridized C
The P1 -C4 distance is 171.7(5) pm and that between B1 and C1 159.5(7) pm. These bond lengths are almost
identical to the analogous data for compound 2 with
R' = C,H,, CH,, R2 = C,H,. The structure of 15, like that
of 2, is also not linear but slightly bent.
