Abstract

Ionic π-mesitylene zirconium complexes (1–4) have been obtained by a reaction between ZrCl4 and a metal reducer (Al, Zn or Mg) in the presence of AlCl3 in mesitylene. An X-ray study has shown that in the triangular cluster cations [(η-C6H3Me3Zr3(μ-Cl6)]n+ an increase in the charge from 2+ (1,2) to 3+ (3,4) is accompanied by shortening of the Zr-Zr distances from 3.32–3.33 A to 3.27–3.28 Å. AlCl4 (1), Al2Cl7 (1–3), and Mg[(μ-Cl)2AlCl2]3 (4), the latter found here for the first time, are present in the complexes studied as counterions.
