|Abstract:||The one-pot synthesis and structural characterization of two new complexes of the croconato ligand (C5O5)2- with the Ga(III) and Er(III) metal ions are reported. The mononuclear tris-chelated (n-Bu4N)3[Ga(C5O5)3], 1, which exhibits an octahedral geometry, is present as Δ and Λ enantiomers in equal amounts; the K2[Er(C5O 5)(μ-SO4)(OH2)4]2 complex, 2, shows dinuclear erbium moieties with bridging sulfate anions and interposed K(I) cations with a capped trigonal prismatic coordination geometry. 2 shows paramagnetic behavior in the 2-300 K range typical of two isolated Er(III) ions. Vibrational (FT-IR and FT-Raman) and electronic spectroscopies have shown to be a reliable diagnostic tool in distinguishing different molecular arrangements of the croconato ligand in different complexes. The analogies of the gallium complex with the corresponding [M(C2O 4)3]3- tris-chelated complexes which have been used as chiral building blocks of molecular conductors are pointed out. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
