Crystallographic Determination of Three Ni-a-Hydroxyoxime-Carboxylic Acid Synergist Complexes
MetadataShow full item record
X-ray crystal structures of three dicarboxylato-bis-a-hydroxyoximenickel(II) complexes have been obtained. These contain a short chained (C8) analogue of LIX®63 hydroxyoxime, along with either benzoate, isobutyrate or propionate. All have pseudo-octahedral structures with monodentate carboxylate anions located cis to one another and neutral, chelating a-hydroxyoxime ligands. Intra-molecular hydrogen bonding between each anionic acid's carboxylate group and an adjacent oxime hydroxyl group is evident. Inter-molecular hydrogen bonding is also observed. These provide the first definitive structural elucidation of the types of nickel complexes that could be formed during synergistic extraction by LIX®63 and carboxylic acids.
