Abstract

From the pyrazoles 3,5-di-(2′-furanyl)pyrazole (fu2pzH), 3-phenyl-5-(2′-thienyl)pyrazole (PhtpzH) and 3-(2′-furanyl)-5-(2′′-naphthyl)pyrazole (funappzH), a range of alkaline earth and lanthanoid pyrazolate complexes has been prepared by redox transmetallation/protolysis reactions between free metals, Hg(C6F5)2 and the pyrazoles, by reaction of I2-activated metals with the pyrazoles, and in one case by a similar reaction of unactivated metal, in the donor solvents tetrahydrofuran (thf) and 1,2-dimethoxyethane (dme). Thus the divalent [Ca(Phtpz)2(thf)4], [Ba(Phtpz)2(thf)4] and [Ca(funappz)2(thf)4]·(thf) complexes, the heteroleptic [Yb(Phtpz)I(thf)4] and the trivalent [La(fu2pz)3(thf)3]·2thf complex have been prepared and structurally characterized, as well as the dme complexes [Yb(Phtpz)2(dme)2] and [Eu(Phtpz)3(dme)2]. Highlights include the first trans-[LnII(pz)I(thf)4] complex, a rare transoid [Ln(pz)2(dme)2] complex and a complex with both chelating and unidentate dme. In all cases, the Phtpz complexes exhibit pronounced positional disorder of the 2-thienyl and phenyl groups in the solid state, as do the two polymorphs of the parent pyrazole.

Additional keywords: alkaline earth metals, crystal structure, disorder, lanthanides, pyrazolates.
