Abstract

The compound CpGdCl23THF has been successfully prepared from NaCp (Cp = C5H5) and GdCl3(2:1 molar ratio) in THF and characterized by elemental analysis, IR and MS spectra and a single crystal X-ray diffraction study, showing that the compound is monomeric in both vapour and solid states. Crystals are monoclinic, space group P2₁/n, with a = 7.818, b=17.139(2), c= 15.203(2)A,β= 95.88(2)°, and Dc= 1.678g/cm3 for Z=4; 1876 reflections were considered observed. The structure was solved by heavy-atom methods. Least-squares refinement converged to a final value of R = 0.041. The gadolinium has a distorted octahedral geometry coordinated by one Cp ring centroid, three THF oxygen atoms and two chloride anions. The average Gd-O(THF) distance is 2.397(3) A. The Gd-C(Cp) bond lengths range from 2.673(6) to 2.691(6) A, and average 2.683(6) A.
