Crystal structure of 4-ethylvanadatrane-1-one

  • 18 Accesses


An X-ray diffraction study of a substituted vanadatrane-1-one (space groupPna21,R= 0.019 for 1394 reflections, the absolute structure was determined) showed that the geometry of its atrane framework is similar to that of the Si- and Ge-analogs. The bond lengths are: V=O, 1.614(2) Å; V←N, 2.329(2) Å; V-O, 1.800–1.806(2) Å. The deviation of the V atom having distorted trigonal bipyramidal coordination from the equatorial plane of the O atoms is 0.35 Å, the 0=V←N bond angle is 179.4(1)°.
