Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
