Abstract

Protonation equilibrium has been studied for the acyclic gold(III) tetraaza metallocomplex [AuB]2+ [B = N, N′-bis(2-aminoethyl)-2,4-pentanediiminato(1−)] in aqueous solution. The synthetic procedure is described. The crystal and molecular structure of the protonated form of the [AuHB](H5O2)(ClO4)4 complex has been determined. Monoclinic crystals with unit cell dimensions a = 11.964(2) Å, b = 13.789(3) Å, c = 15.496(3) Å, β = 109.00(3)°, V = 2417.1(8) Å3, Z = 4, ρcalc = 2.243 g/cm3, space group P21/n. The structure is built of nearly planar [Au(C9H20N4)]3+ complex cations, (H5O2)+ cations, and [ClO4] anions. The gold atom coordinates four nitrogen atoms of the ligand, forming a square plane. The six-membered chelate ring of the ligand is protonated at the central β-carbon atom and contains imine C=N bonds. The oxygen atoms of the perchlorate ions are hydrogen bonded to the (H5O2)+ dihydroxonium ion and to the nitrogen atoms of the NH2 groups of the [AuHB]3+ cation.
