Open Access research with a real impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde research outputs.

The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within Strathclyde's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is producing Open Access research that can help society deploy and optimise renewable energy systems, such as wind turbine technology.

Abstract

The terdentate ligands C6H3-2,6-(CH(2)PCy(2))(2) (PCP: Cy = cyclohexyl) in the octahedral solvento complexes trans-[RhCl2(MeOH)(PCP)] and trans-[RhCl2(EtOH)(PCP)] adopt conformations which minimise the interactions between the sterically demanding Cy groups and the trans chlorides. Comparison of these structures with those of related molecules, including square-pyramidal and square-planar species, suggests an explanation for the different structural types obtained as products from reactions of RhCl3.3H(2)O and various ligands C6H4-1,3-(CH(2)ER(2))(2) with E = N or P.
