Abstract

Heterometallic rare earth transition metal compounds of dithioxalate (dto)2–, [NiII{(dto)LnIIITp2}2] (Ln = Y (1), Gd (2); Tp = hydrotris(pyrazol-1-yl)borate) were synthesised. The Lewis acidic rare earth ions are bound to the dioxolene and chemical reduction of 1 and 2 with cobaltocene yielded [CoCp2]+[NiII{(dto)LnIIITp2}2]˙− Ln = Y (3), Gd (4). The reduction is ligand-based and 3 and 4 are the first examples of both molecular and electronic structural characterisation of the dithiooxalato radical (dto)3˙−.
