“Chemistry of Monomeric and Dinuclear Non-Oxido Vanadium(IV)and Oxidovanadium(V) Aroylazine Complexes: Exploring Solution Behavior”, Rupam Dinda*, Subhashree P. Dash, Department of Chemistry,

A
series of mononuclear non-oxido vanadium-(IV) [VIV(L1−4)2] (1−4), oxidoethoxido vanadium(V) [VVO-( L 1 − 4 ) ( OEt ) ] ( 5 − 8 ) , and dinuclearμ -oxidodioxidodivanadium(V) [VV2O3(L1)2] (9) complexes with tridentate aroylazine ligands are reported [H2L1 = 2-furoylazine of 2-hydroxy-1-acetonaphthone,
H2L2 = 2- thiophenoylazine of 2-hydroxy-1-acetonaphthone, H2L3 = 1-naphthoylazine of 2-hydroxy-1-acetonaphthone, H2L4 = 3-hydroxy-2-naphthoylazine of 2-hydroxy-1-acetonaphthone]. The complexes are characterized by various spectroscopic techniques, and by single-crystal X-ray diffraction (for 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, and 9). The non-oxido VIV complexes are quite stable in open air as well as in solution, and DFT calculations allow predicting EPR and UV−vis spectra and the electronic structure. The solution behavior of the compounds (5−8) is studied confirming the formation of at least two different types of VV species in solution, monomeric corresponding to 5−8, and μ-oxidodioxidodivanadium [VV2O3(L1−4)2] compounds.
