Title: Dinuclear organotin building blocks and their conversion into a tetranuclear macrocycle containing Sn-O-Sn linkages
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: Six dinuclear organotin building blocks of general composition RR′R′′SnCH2Si(CH3)2−biphenyl−Si(CH3)2CH2SnR′′R′R, in which the tin atoms are separated by a p,p′-biphenylene bridge and carry different substituents [BD1 with R, R′=CH2Si(CH3)3, R′′=Ph; BD2 with R, R′=CH2Si(CH3)3, R′′=Cl; BD3, with R, R′=CH2Si(CH3)3, R′′=I; BD4 with R=CH2Si(CH3)2(C5H4FeCp), R′, R′′=Ph; BD5 with R=CH2Si(CH3)2(C5H4FeCp), R′=Ph, R”=Cl; BD6 with R=CH2Si(CH3)2(C5H4FeCp), R′=Ph, R′′=I], were synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic and spectrometric methods. Furthermore, the crystal and molecular structures of BD2 were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction (SCXRD) analysis, revealing the formation of molecular strands through intermolecular Cl→Sn contacts. The 1D coordination polymer [BD2]n comprises macrocyclic rings of composition [BD2]2 that motivated the generation of a related molecular macrocyclic structure by reaction of BD2 with silver (I) oxide in a 2 : 2 stoichiometry. The [2+2] macrocyclization yielded the 30-membered tetra-nuclear ring structure M1, viz., {[R2SnCH2Si(CH3)2−biphenyl−(CH3)2SiCH2SnR2](μ-O)}2, in which two BD2 dinuclear building blocks are linked through two covalent Sn−O−Sn moieties. Examination by DFT calculations at the B3LYP/def2svp and B3LYP/6-31G*(C,H,O,Si)/LanL2DZ(Sn) levels of theory gave energy minima for molecular conformers of M1 carrying the Sn−O−Sn and p,p′-biphenylene bridges in syn- or anti-orientation.
