Zintl phases: Ionic, salt-like intermetallics formed between group 1 (alkali) or group 2 (alkaline- earth) elements and post transition metals or metalloids from groups 13, 14, 15 or 16.

Synthesis

Stoichiometric mixtures of elements loaded in an inert atmosphere glovebox

Nb tube

Arc welder used to seal niobium tubes

Nb tubes sealed in silica ampoules under vacuum

Tube furnace at high temperature (600°C) for 3 days

Structure and solution chemistry

pyridine

Three phosphorus environments (basal, waist, apical)

Each two-coordinate phosphorus carries a formal negative charge

Highly fluxional in solution and solid state

K3P7(s) + H2O + 18-crown-6

[K(18-crown-6)]2[HP7]

Contains 5-10% unidentified impurity phase as synthesized

85% yield, multigram scale, analytically pure

Sen, T.; Poupko, R.; Fleischer, U.; Zimmermann, H.; Luz, Z. J. Am. Chem. Soc.2000, 122, 889

However, in practice, most reactivity can be done with the Zintl phase

2 electron donor to metal centre

4 electron donor to metal centre

6 electron donor to metal centre

Many examples of metallated cages, very little “phospha-organic” chemistry…

–50 ºC 31P NMR [P7(NHDipp)(NDipp)]2-

RT 31P NMR spectrum shows that the cluster anions are fluxional in solution


Robert turbervill university of oxford

Reactions of [HP7]2- with carbodiimides

Preliminary coordination chemistry

Arsenic analogue structurally characterised as [K(2,2,2-crypt)]+ salt


Robert turbervill university of oxford

Accessible 1,2,3-tripnictolides

Several anions are accessible via direct reaction of an alkyne with K3E7 (E = P, As)

All structurally authenticated as either P or As; [K(2,2,2-crypt)]+ or [K(18-crown-6)]+ salts

1,2,3-Triphospholide complex formation

31P NMR spectrum shows upfield shifts of approximately 200-250 ppm on complexation

Analysis of complexes by IR spectroscopy reveals that the ligands have increased π-acceptor properties relative to Cp− (c.f. 1,2,4-triphospholides; Nixon/Green)

IR νCO (cm−1):

[(P3C2H2)Mo(CO)3]−: 1916, 1834, 1814

[(C5H5)Mo(CO)3]−: 1884, 1760

Turbervill, R. S. P.; Jupp, A; McCullough, P. S. B.; Ergöçmen, D.; Goicoechea J. M., accepted

Conclusions and future work

  • [P7]3– cages possess a rich chemistry with organic compounds

  • Useful reagent to access elusive “phospha-organic” molecules

  • Currently exploring salt methathesis and redox chemistry of 1,2,3-tripnictolides

  • Promising results with other organic substrates
