Abstract

The complexation of the simple 1-hydroxymethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazole (HL) ligand with Fe and Ni salts leads to interesting polynuclear complexes in good yield. X-ray diffraction reveals that the resulting complexes (μ4-L)4Ni4Cl4(H 2O)4 and (μ2-L) 43-L)2Fe8Cl164-O)6 adopt cubane-type and open-cubane-type structures in the solid state.
