Abstract

Steric protection of a trisilanol silsesquioxane (also referred to as a silasesquioxane) by one TBDMS group (SiMe2But) generated a new siloxanolate ligand, (c-C5H9)7Si7O9(OH)2(OTBDMS) 1, that allows only restricted access to a co-ordinated metal. Lithiation afforded the stable complex (c-C5H9)7Si7O9(OLi)2(OTBDMS), which has allowed the generation of a samarium adduct [Sm(OC6H3But2-2,6){(c-C5H9)7Si7O9(O)(OLi)(OTBDMS)}2]. A structural study of this samarium adduct revealed two unusual features: an absence of stabilising M–O interactions with the siloxane core, and retention of one apical aryloxide group at the trivalent metal, through which the chemistry of a silica-functionalised Ln3+ ion might be modelled. X-Ray crystallography also revealed the dimeric hydrogen bonded structure of the disilanol ligands. The disilanol ligand 1 may also readily be converted into a dithallium salt, providing a potential precursor for further f-element derivatives of this disilanolate moiety.
