Solid-state mechanochemical synthesis of tris(4-imino-2-pentanonato)chromium, Cr[CH3C(NH)CHC(O)CH3]3


Tris(4-imino-2-pentanonato)chromium was prepared by solid-state synthesis under conditions of mechanical activation of a mixture of chromium(III) chloride and sodium 4-imino-2-pentanonate and characterized by IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and electronic absorption spectroscopy.
