Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

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.
