Intermediate products have been isolated from the reaction of (4,4,9,9-tetramethyl-5,8-diazadodecane-2,11-dione dihydrazone )nickel(II) perchlorate with butane-2,3-dione which finally yields the macrocyclic product (3,4,7,9,9,14,14,16-octamethyl-1,2,5,6,10,13-hexaazacyclohexa-deca-2,4,6,16-tetraene)nickel(II) perchlorate , [Ni( omht )] (ClO4)2. An initial violet product is assigned a structure with the macrocyclic ligand 3-acetyl-3,6,8,8,13,13,15-heptamethyl-1,2,4,5,9,12-hexaazacyclopentadeca-5,15-diene. In water this converts into an equilibrium mixture of the tautomeric cations blue cis-aqua(3,4,7,9,9,14,14,16-octamethyl-1,2,5,6,10,13-hexaazacyclohexadeca-1(16),4,6-trien-3-ol)nickel(II), cis-[Ni(L2)(H2O)]2+, and orange (3,6,8,- 8,13,13-hexamethyl-4,5,9,12-tetraazahexadeca-3,5-diene-2,15-dione 15-hydrazone)nickel(II), [Ni(L3)]2+. The rates at 25°C of the forward and reverse reactions of this tautomerism, and of the slower conversion of the equilibrium mixture to [Ni( omht )](ClO4)2, are reported. The structure of cis -[Ni(L2)(H2O)](ClO4)2.3H2O has been determined by X-ray diffractometry (monoclinic, space group P21/n, a 9.694(8), b 19.218(14), c 16.652(9) Ǻ, β 94.88(1)°, R 0.079 for 3254 reflections). This has NiII in octahedral coordination by secondary amine nitrogen atoms 10 and 13, hydrazone nitrogen atoms 1 and 6, and the carbinolamine oxygen substituent at position 3 of the pentadentate macrocyclic ligand L2, with a water molecule coordinated cis to the hydroxy group. Compounds of the tautomeric cations [Ni(L2)]2+ and [Ni(L3)]2+ with coordinated thiocyanate, azide, nitrite, oxalate and acetate are described.
