Abstract
The reaction of bismuth triiodide with iodine and benzo-15-crown-5 in ethanol/dichloromethane yielded red single crystals of (b15c5)BiI3(I2) (monoclinic, P21/c (no. 14), a = 1376.9(1), b = 1172.7(1), c = 1700.2(2) pm, b = 115.197(6), V = [...] Read more.
The reaction of bismuth triiodide with iodine and benzo-15-crown-5 in ethanol/dichloromethane yielded red single crystals of (b15c5)BiI3(I2) (monoclinic, P21/c (no. 14), a = 1376.9(1), b = 1172.7(1), c = 1700.2(2) pm, b = 115.197(6), V = 2484.1(4)·106 pm3, Z = 4). Neutral pseudo-octahedral complexes (b15c5)BiI3 are connected by secondary bonding interactions via iodine molecules to chains. Electronic structure calculations of the neutral complex (b15c5)BiI3 reveal that the compound can indeed be described as b15c5 interacting with a molecular BiI3 unit. However, bonding has to be mainly electrostatic as the interactions of the bismuth 6s lone pair with the 2p orbitals of the oxygen atoms of the crown ether are clearly antibonding. Full article

The crystal and molecular structure of the title compound, viz., (2Z)-2-[3-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-4,4-dimethyl-1,2,-oxazolidin-2-ylidene]-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethanone (4), is reported. Compound 4 crystallises from toluene/hexanes mixtures in the P21/c space group with eight molecules in the unit cell. The unit cell parameters are: a = 20.9410(11) Å, b = 8.7523(5) Å, c = 21.2291(9) Å; β = 93.529(3)° and V = 3883.5(3) Å3. There are two structurally distinct molecules of 4 found in the solid-state which differ primarily in terms of the observed torsion angles and the overall intramolecular spacing between the aromatic groups. Bond lengths and angles of this tertiary amide are otherwise typical. This is the first crystallographically characterised example of this class of oxazoline precursors, which have previously found application in the syntheses of other heterocycles. Density functional theory (b3lyp 6-311++G** level of sophistication) has likewise been applied to estimate the gas-phase structure of the title compound. Full article

Open AccessArticle Defect Scheelite-Type Lanthanoid(III) Ortho-Oxomolybdates(VI) Ln0.667[MoO4] (Ln = Ce, Pr, Nd, and Sm) and Their Relationship to Zircon and the NaTl-Type Structure

The rare-earth metal(III) ortho-oxomolybdates with the formula Ln0.667[MoO4] (Ln = Ce, Pr, Nd, and Sm) and defect scheelite-type structure crystallize in the tetragonal space group I41/a (a = 533–525, c = 1183–1158 pm) with four formula units per unit cell. The Ln3+ cations at Wyckoff position 4b exhibit a coordination sphere of eight oxygen atoms in the shape of a trigonal dodecahedron. The same site symmetry (..) is observed for the tetrahedral oxomolybdate(VI) entities [MoO4]2–, since their central Mo6+ cation is situated at the 4a position. Due to this equal site multiplicity, the lanthanoid(III) cations have to be statistically under-occupied to maintain electroneutrality, thus a defect scheelite structure emerges. The partial structure of both the Ln3+ cations and the [MoO4]2– anions (if shrunk to their centers of gravity) can be best described as distorted diamond-like arrangements. Therefore, these two interpenetrating partial structures exhibit a similar setup as found in the zircon-type as well as in the NaTl-type structure. Full article

The base catalyzed intramolecular nucleophilic cyclization of 1-(2-bromobenzoyl)-3-(2-fluorophenyl)thiourea (1) in the presence of N,N-dimethyl formamide (DMF) afforded the 1-(3-fluorophenyl)-2-thioxo-2,3-dihydroquinazolin-4(1H)-one (2) by an intramolecular nucleophilic substitution SNAr mechanism. The structure was supported by the spectroscopic data and unambiguously confirmed by the single crystal X-ray diffraction data. It crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group P na21 with unit cell dimensions a = 22.430(4), b = 8.1478(16), c = 13.522(3) Å, V = 2471.2(9) Å3. There are two independent molecules per asymmetric unit that are linked to centrosymmetric AB-dimers via intermolecular N-H…S bonds. Full article

The crystal structures of C5H14N2·HPO3·H2O (1) and C5H14N2·HPO3·2.23H2O (2) are described and compared. Compound 1 contains homochiral (S)-2-methyl piperizinium cations, hydrogen phosphite ions and water molecules. The components are linked by N–H⋯O and O–H⋯O hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network. In compound 2, racemic (R,S)-2-methyl piperizinium cations combine with the same anions and water molecules to generate a far more complex, high symmetry “supramolecular” structure, which features distinctive R66(12) loops and helical C(2) chain hydrogen-bonding motifs involving the water molecules. Crystal data: 1 (C5H17N2O4P), Mr = 200.18, orthorhombic, P212121 (No. 19), Z = 4, a = 8.564 (5) Å, b = 9.593 (6) Å, c = 11.607 (6) Å, V = 953.6 (9) Å3, R(F) = 0.066, wR(F2) = 0.081. 2 (C5H19.47N2O5.24P), Mr = 222.49, trigonal, (No. 148), Z = 18, a = 31.075 (2) Å, c = 6.1875 (4) Å, V = 5174.5 (6) Å3, R(F) = 0.044, wR(F2) = 0.107.
