Abstract

Crystal structure of [Fe(salphen)Cl] (H2salphen=N,N′-(1R, 2R)-1,2-diphenylethylenebis(salicylideneimine)) reveals that a steric effect induced by the bulky substituent on the Schiff base ligand brings about drastic changes in the reactivity of the complex; the typical dimerization of the chloroiron(III) complex upon basification to yield μ-oxo complexes are suppressed, resulting in the high-yielding conversion to a hydroxide salt.
