Received: 26 July 2020;  Published: 07 September 2020;  doi: 10.21926/acr.2003008


The compound, [cis-dichloro-(tris-2-amino(ethylamine))cobalt(III)]chloride hydrate, [cis-Cl2-(tren)Co(III)Cl]·H2O, a conglomerate crystallizing in P21 with Z = 4 (Z’ = 2), has been used as a precursor in the synthesis of a new dicobalt(III) peroxo complex: [(μ2-hydroxo)(μ2-peroxo)bis(tris-2-amino(et [...]

1-Decylbenzimidazole Copper(II) Complexes: Combined Experimental and DFT PCM and TD-DFT Computational Studies

Received: 29 June 2020;  Published: 27 August 2020;  doi: 10.21926/acr.2003007


1-Decylbenzimidazole (dbim) copper(II) complexes formed during solvent extraction were thoroughly studied, and their structures were predicted. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations of their structures and Time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT) calculations of their spectra indicated that 1-decylbenzimi [...]

A Preparation and Structural Characterization of the Hydrated Trifluoride Salt of the [Co(NH3)6]3+ Cation: [Co(NH3)6]F3 · 2H2O. The Unexpected Preparation of [Co(NH3)6](BF4)(SiF6) from Pyrex Glass, and the Syntheses and Structures of (NH4)[Co(NH3)6](BF4)2(2Cl) and of (NH4)[Co(NH3)6]2(SiF6)3(Cl) · 3H2O

Received: 28 June 2020;  Published: 23 July 2020;  doi: 10.21926/acr.2003006


It is historically interesting to note that, whereas the [Co(NH3)6]3+ cation was isolated by Tassaert in 1798 (which he described as the tri-chloride) and that, in the early days of Coordination Chemistry, Jørgensen and Werner isol [...]
