trans-Dimethano­lbis(1,1,1-trifluoro-5,5-dimethyl­hexane-2,4-dionato)zinc(II)

Abstract

The title compound, [Zn(C8H10F3O2)2(CH4O)2], is a dimethanol coordinated zinc complex with the acetyl acetonate derivative 1,1,1-trifluoro-5,5-dimethyl­hexane-2,4-dionate. The bis­-β-diketonate complex, which is isostructural with its Co analogue, is located on a crystallographic inversion center. The complex is octa­hedral with basically no distortion, and the methanol mol­ecules are in trans positions with respect to one another. The planes of the β-diketonate and the ZnO4 unit are tilted by 18.64 (10)° against each other. O—H(...)O hydrogen bonds between the methanol hydroxyl groups and neighboring diketonate O atoms create chains running along [100].

Comment

β-Diketonates and especially metal β-diketonate complexes have been widely studied for both their instrinsic properties as well as a variety of scientific and technolgical applications. Especially interesting applications include, but are not limited to, catalysis (Burtoloso, 2005), carbon-nanotube structures (Katok et al., 2006), or the deposition of metallic or ceramic thin films (Condorelli et al., 2007). In our own laboratory we are investigating gas phase reactions of a series of metal acetylacetonate (acac) complexes. Through mass spectrometric analysis, several acetylacetonate and substituted acetyl acetonate species were observed to undergo various reactions including ligand exchange and association (Schildcrout, 1976; Lerach & Leskiw, 2008). In this context fluorinated metal-β-diketonates are especially interesting because of their increased volality, thermal stability, and also their ease of preparation.

The title compound, [Zn(C8H10F3O2)2(CH3OH)2], which is isostructural with its Co analogue (Lerach et al., 2007) is a dimethanol coordinate of a zinc complex with the ligand 1,1,1-trifluoro-5,5-dimethylhexane-2,4-dionate, an acetyl acetonate derivative with each a tert-butyl and a trifluoromethyl substituent. A thermal ellipsoid plot of the molecule is shown in Fig. 1. The bis-β-diketonate complex is located on a crystallographic inversion center with the two methanol molecules in trans position to each other. The coordination environment of the central zinc cation is octahedral with only a very slight distortion: angles around the Zn atom deviate from 90° by 0.36 (8)° or less, and Zn—O distances are 2.054 (2) and 2.040 (2) Å for the zinc β-diketonate bonds and 2.161 (2) Å towards the methanol molecules. The mean planes of the diketonate ligands, defined by the atoms O1, O2 and C1 to C5, and that of the ZnO4 unit are tilted against each other by an angle of 18.64 (10)°, which is virtually identical to the vaule of 17.41 (7)° observed in the structure of the Co analogue of the title compound.

Packing of the molecules within the structure is assisted by hydrogen bonds between the methanol hydroxyl groups and diketonate oxygen atoms of neighboring molecules (Table 1). The O—H···O interactions create hydrogen bonded chains that stretch along the a-axis of the structure.

Experimental

The synthesis of the title compound was adapted from Watson & Lin (1966). 0.80 ml (5.0 mmol) of the ligand were added to a stirring solution of 0.22 g of ZnCl2 (1.6 m mol) and 50 ml of de-inoized water. Diluted 1:1 (v/v) NH4OH was added dropwise to the mixture until no more visible precipitate formed. The solution was stirred for another hour at room temperature, and the precipitate was isolated by vacuum filtration. The desired product was re-crystallized by overnight evaporation of a concentrated methanolic solution.

Refinement

The hydroxyl H atom was located in a difference density Fourier map and the O—H distance was restrained to 0.84 (2) Å. All other H atoms were placed in calculated positions with C—H distances of 0.98 (methyl) and 0.95 Å (CH). The methyl and hydroxyl H's were refined with an isotropic displacement parameter Uiso of 1.5 times Ueq of the adjacent carbon or oxygen atom, and the C—H hydrogen atom with Uiso = 1.2 Ueq(C). Methyl hydrogen atoms were allowed to rotate to best fit the experimental electron density.

Special details

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.
Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
