Abstract

A novel dicyanoosmium(III) complex, trans-Ph4P[OsIII(salen)(CN)2]•CH2Cl2•H2O (1; Ph4P+ = tetraphenylphosphonium cation, salen2-=N,N′-ethylenebis(salicylideneaminato) dianion), has been synthesized and structurally characterized. Reactions of 1 with [Cu(Me3tacn)(H2O)2](ClO4)2 (Me3tacn=1,4,7-trimethyl-1,4,7-triazacyclononane) under different conditions produce the 1-D ferromagnetic zigzag chains [Os(salen)(CN)2]2[Cu(Me3tacn)]•CH3OH (2) and [Os(salen)(CN)2][Cu(Me3tacn)]•ClO4 (3).
