Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

Oxidative addition of the disulfide compounds naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2] dithiole, 2-tert-butylnaptho[1,8-cd][1,2] dithiole, 2,7-di-tert-butylnaphtho[1,8-cd][1,2] dithiole, 4,5-dithiaacephenanthrylene and the thio/sulfinyl and thio/sulfonyl compounds naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2] dithiole 1-oxide, and naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2] dithiole 1,1-dioxide respectively to [{Ir(mu-Cl)( cod)}(2)] give dinuclear Ir - Ir bonded Ir(II) compounds [{IrCl( cod)}(2)(mu(2)- 1,8- S-2- nap)] 1, [{IrCl(cod)}(2)(mu(2)- 1,8- S-2-2(t)Bu- nap)] 2, [{IrCl(cod)}(2)(mu(2)-1,8-S-2- 2,7-di-Bu-t-nap)}] 3, [{IrCl(cod)}(2)(mu(2)- 4,5- S-2-phenan)] 4, [{IrCl(cod)}(2)(mu(2)- 1- S, 8{ S(O)}- nap)] 5 and [{IrCl(cod)}(2)(mu(2)-1-S, 8-{S(O)(2)}- nap)] 6 where the di-sulfur ligands act as bridges between the two Ir( II) metal centres. The compounds were obtained in moderate to good yields as orange or deep red powders or crystalline solids. Five of the new complexes have been structurally characterised and were found to have Ir - Ir bond lengths in the range 2.7630(8) to 2.8113(11) Angstrom.
