Synthesis, physicochemical properties and crystal structure of isothiocianato [2-(diphenylphosphino)benzaldehyde selenosemicarbazonato(1(-))] nickel(II)
MetadataShow full item record
The syntheses of a new ligand 2-(diphenylphosphino)benzaldehyde selenosemicarbazone (HL) and the corresponding complex with Ni(II) of the formula [Ni(L)(NCS)] are reported. The complex was characterized by single crystal X-ray analysis. The compound complex is diamagnetic and has a markedly deformed square-planar structure with PNSe set of donor atoms of the ligand, the Schiff base monoanion, and the N atom of the coordinated NCS group. The phosphorus atom deviates even by 0.494(3) Angstrom from the mean plane defined by the other coordination atoms (NSeN) and the metal atom. (C) 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.
