Structural Studies of Complexes of Tridentate Terimine Systems. Crystal Structure of Bis(2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine)ruthenium(II) Perchlorate Hydrate, Bis(2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine)- osmium(II) Perchlorate Hemihydrate and Bis((1,10-phenanthrolin-2-yl)(pyridin-2-yl)amine)iron(II) Tetrafluoroborate Dihydrate

The crystal structures of bis(2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine)ruthenium(II) perchlorate hydrate, bis(2,2′:6′,2″- terpyridine)osmium(II) perchlorate hemihydrate and bis((1,10-phenanthrolin-2-yl)(pyridin-2-yl)- amine)iron(II) tetrafluoroborate dihydrate are described. In the terpyridine complexes the ruthenium-nitrogen distances and the corresponding osmium-nitrogen distances are not significantly different. In both complexes the ligand geometry and the metal ion environment show the distortions usual for bis(terpyridine) systems. Distortions are less marked in the bis((1,10-phenanthrolin-2-yl)(pyridin-2-yl)amine)iron(II) cation in which each tridentate unit forms one five-membered and one six-membered chelate ring.

[Os(trpy)2] [ClO4]2.(H2O)0·5: monoclinic, space group P 21/n, a 8·842(3), b 8·861(1), c 39·22(2) Å, β93·89(2)°, Z 4. [Fe(phpyam)2] [BF4]2.(H2O)2: triclinic, space group P -1, a 12·43(1), b 12·45(1), c 13·35(1) Å, α 62·70(10), β 78·55(8), γ 72·46(9)°, Z 2.
