A trigonal prismatic Cu6-pyrazolato complex containing a μ6-F ligand

Dalton Trans. 2015 Dec 21;44(47):20685-91. doi: 10.1039/c5dt03892h. Epub 2015 Nov 13.


The encapsulation of a fluoride ion in a trigonal prismatic CuII6-pyrazolato cage results in a small expansion of the Cu6-host. The structural, electronic and magnetic features of the Cu6-complex, containing an endohedral fluoride in the rare μ6-F coordination mode, are compared with those of the parent complex with a vacant Cu6-cage.
