Abstract

Treatment of the bis(chelate) complex trans-[Pd(κ(2)-2-C6F4PPh2)2] (7) with PMe3 gave trans-[Pd(κC-2-C6F4PPh2)2(PMe3)2] (13) as a mixture of syn- and anti-isomers. Reaction of 13 with CuCl, AgCl, or [AuCl(tht)] (tht = tetrahydrothiophene) gave the heterobinuclear complexes [(Me3P)2Pd(μ-2-C6F4PPh2)2MCl] [M = Cu (14), Ag (15), Au (16)], from which the corresponding = salts [(Me3P)2Pd(μ-2-C6F4PPh2)2M]PF6 [M = Cu (17), Ag (18), Au (19)] could be prepared by abstraction of the chloro ligand with TlPF6; 18, as well as its triflato (20) and trifluoroacetato (21) analogues, were also prepared directly from 13 and the appropriate silver salt. Reaction of 13 with [AuCl(PMe3)] gave the zwitterionic complex [(Me3P)PdCl(μ-2-C6F4PPh2)2Au] (24) in which the 2-C6F4PPh2 ligands are in a head-to-head arrangement. In contrast, the analogous reaction with [AuCl(PPh3)] gave [(Ph3P)PdCl(μ-2-C6F4PPh2)2Au] (25) with a head-to-tail ligand arrangement. Single crystal X-ray diffraction studies of complexes 14-21 show short metal-metal separations [2.7707(11)-2.9423(3) Å] suggestive of attractive noncovalent (dispersion) interactions, a conclusion that is supported by theoretical calculations of the electron localization function and the noncovalent interactions descriptor.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 July 2015.
All research outputs
#7,073,756
of 12,307,767 outputs
Outputs from Inorganic Chemistry
#6,410
of 14,345 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#108,434
of 240,864 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Inorganic Chemistry
#99
of 428 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,307,767 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 14,345 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 54% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 240,864 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 428 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
