Bis(alpha-diimine)iron complexes: electronic structure determination by spectroscopy and broken symmetry density functional theoretical calculations


, : Bis(alpha-diimine)iron complexes: electronic structure determination by spectroscopy and broken symmetry density functional theoretical calculations. Inorganic Chemistry 47(11): 4579-4590

The electronic structure of a family comprising tetrahedral (alpha-diimine)iron dichloride, and tetrahedral bis(alpha-diimine)iron compounds has been investigated by Mossbauer spectroscopy, magnetic susceptibility measurements, and X-ray crystallography. In addition, broken-symmetry density functional theoretical (B3LYP) calculations have been performed. A detailed understanding of the electronic structure of these complexes has been obtained. A paramagnetic (St=2), tetrahedral complex [FeII(4L)2], where (4L)1- represents the diamagnetic monoanion N-tert-butylquinolinylamide, has been synthesized and characterized to serve as a benchmark for a Werner-type complex containing a tetrahedral FeIIN4 geometry and a single high-spin ferrous ion. In contrast to the most commonly used description of the electronic structure of bis(alpha-diimine)iron(0) complexes as low-valent iron(0) species with two neutral alpha-diimine ligands, it is established here that they are, in fact, complexes containing two (alpha-diiminato)1-* pi radical monoanions and a high-spin ferrous ion (in tetrahedral N4 geometry) (SFe=2). Intramolecular antiferromagnetic coupling between the pi radical ligands (Srad=1/2) and the ferrous ion (SFe=2) yields the observed St=1 ground state. The study confirms that alpha-diimines are redox noninnocent ligands with an energetically low-lying antibonding pi* lowest unoccupied molecular orbital which can accept one or two electrons from a transition metal ion. The (alpha-diimine)FeCl2 complexes (St=2) are shown to contain a neutral alpha-diimine ligand, a high spin ferrous ion, and two chloride ligands.
