Keene, T.D., Hursthouse, M.B. and Price, D.J. (2004) Tetra-n-butylamine(carbonato-kappa O-2,O')cobalt(III)n-butylcarbamate dihydrate. Acta Crystallographica. Section E: Structure Reports Online, 60(4), M381-M383. (doi: 10.1107/S1600536804005070)




The title compound, [Co(CO3)(C4H11N)4](C5H10NO2)·2H2O, is a coordination complex with an N4O2 coordination sphere around the central CoIII ion. The small bite angle of the chelating carbonate causes a distortion of the octahedral geometry to an approximately C2v local symmetry. Hydrogen-bonding between the carbonate, carbamate and amine groups, and the water of crystallization, results in a complex two-dimensional network.
