Abstract

A novel dicyanoosmium(III) complex, trans-Ph4P[Os III(salen)(CN)2]* CH2Cl2 * H2O (1; Ph4 P+ = 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)] * CH 3OH (2) and [Os(salen)(CN)2][Cu(Me3tacn)] * ClO4 (3).
