Synthesis and X-Ray Crystal Structure of a Polymeric Iodobismuthate Anion

  • Claire J. Carmalt , Louis J. Farrugia and Nicholas C. Norman

The reaction between [CH2=C(C6H4-4-NO2)CH2NMe3]I and eight equivalents of BiI3 in thf (tetrahydrofuran) afforded, after work-up, dark red crystals of the compound [CH2=C(C6H4-4-NO2)CH2NMe3]n[{Bi2I7}n], the structure of which was established by X -ray crystallography and shown to contain a polymeric iodobismuthate anion. An analogous reaction between [CH3(CH2)2COS(CH2)2N(CH3)3]I and eight equivalents of BiI3 afforded orange crystals of the compound [CH3(CH2)2COS(CH2)2N(CH3)3]4[Bi4I16] which was shown by X -ray crystallography to contain the tetranuclear [Bi4I16]4- anion.
