Synthesis, spectroscopic and thermal investigations of solid charge-transfer complexes of 1,4,7-trimethyl-1,4,7-triazacyclononane and the acceptors iodine, TCNE, TCNQ and chloranil
MetadataShow full item record
The solid charge-transfer complexes formed in the reaction of the electron donor 1,4,7-trimethyl-1,4,7-triazacyclononane (TMTACN) with the acceptors iodine, tetracyanoethylene (TCNE) and 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) have been isolated. These were characterized through electronic and infrared spectra as well as thermal and elemental analysis. The results show that the formed solid CT-complexes have the formulas [(TMTACN)I]I3, [(TMTACN)(TCNE)5] and [(TMTACN)(TCNQ)3] in full agreement with the known reaction stoichiometries in solution. The chloranil CT-solid complex cannot be isolated in pure form.
