Bis{4-chloro-2-[2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethyl­imino­meth­yl]phenolato-κ2 N,O}zinc(II)

Abstract

The Zn atom in the title compound, [Zn(C17H14ClN2O)2], is N,O-chelated by two deprotonated Schiff base monoanionic ligands in a tetra­hedral coordination geometry. The Zn atom lies on a special position of site symmetry 2.

Comment

We have recently reported the low-temperature structure of the zinc derivative of the ligand without any substituent, [C17H15N2O)2Zn] (Ng, 2008); the low-temperature structure is identical to the room-temperature structure (Chen et al., 2007). The present compound has a chlorine substituent but this does not lead to significant changes to the bond dimensions of the central metal.

Experimental

The Schiff base ligand was synthesized by the reaction of tryptamine (0.32 g, 2 mmol), 5-chlorosalicylaldehyde (0.24 g, 2 mmol) and zinc acetate (0.19 g, 1 mmol) in ethanol. There organic reagents were first heated for an hour. Zinc acetate was then added followed by excess of triethylamine (1 ml). Crystals were obtained by recrystallization from dimethylformamide.

Refinement

All H atoms were located in a difference Fourier map, and were refined with distance restraints of C–H 1.00 Å and N–H 0.88 Å; their temperature factors were freely refined.
