Synthesis and X-ray single crystal study of Co2Al2(O-i Pr)(6)(acac)(4) - first representative of a new structure type for the heterometallic alkoxide complexes

Suslova, Evgeniya V.; Seisenbaeva, Gulaim; Kessler, Vadim


The interaction of Co(acac)(2) with Al((OPr)-Pr-i)(3) in 1:1 ratio in toluene on reflux provided with quantitative yield a new heterometallic heteroleptic alkoxide complex, Co2Al2((OPr)-Pr-i)(6)(acac)(4)(I), displaying the so far unprecedented linear chain structure with a M'(mu-OR)(2)M(mu-OR)(2)M(mu-OR)(2)M'core. I appears to be a promising precursor for cobalt oxide-cobalt spinel nanocomposite materials. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
