Abstract

This is the first of several planned paper describing the coordination chemistry of the novel ligand DIG3tren. We show by X-ray crystallography (performed in collaboration with Glenn Yap at the University of Delaware), mass spectrometry and UV/vis spectroscopy that the DIG3tren ligand coordinates to cobalt by 4 nitrogen atoms (one at the bottom and three equally-spaced around the middle) and has isopropyl 'flaps' that can close over the top of the cobalt atom, or can swing open to allow binding by a small auxiliary ligand such as acetate. --author-supplied description
