Abstract

Addition of various oxygen-donor ligands (L, all dipolar, aprotic solvents), to a solution of hydrated scandium picrate in weakly coordinating solvents (S), has yielded several crystalline adducts of the form Sc(pic)3(L)m(·nS) in which all ligands L are coordinated, subsequently characterised by a series of single crystal X-ray studies. For L = dmso, m = 3 and the picrate anions are all bound as phenoxide-O donor units, while for nmp, dma, tmp, and hmpa, m = 2 and one of the bound picrates becomes bidentate through phenoxide- and nitro-O donation. For L = ompa, m = 2 and two picrate ligands are bound through phenoxide-O while one is displaced from the primary coordination sphere. All complexes contain six-coordinate ScIII, confirming that this coordination number is a consequence of ligand bulk.
