(2,2′-Bipyridine-2N,N′)(2,3-naphthalenediolato-2O,O′)palladium(II) and (2,2′-biquinoline-2N,N′)(2,3-naphthalenediolato-2O,O′)palladium(II)
Abstract:In the title compounds, [Pd(C10H6O2)(C10H8N2)], (I), and [Pd(C10H6O2)(C18H12N2)], (II), each PdII atom has a similar distorted cis-planar four-coordination geometry involving two O atoms of the 2,3-naphthalenediolate dianion and two N atoms of the 2,2′-bipyridine or 2,2′-biquinoline ligand. The overall structure of (I) is essentially planar, but that of (II) is not, as a result of intramolecular overcrowding leading to bowing of the biquinoline ligand.
