Abstract

Reactions of 1-{[2-(arylazo)phenyl]iminomethyl}-2-phenol, HLsal, 1, [where H represents the dissociable protons upon complexation and aryl groups of HLsal are phenyl for HLsal1, p-methylphenyl for HLsal2, and p-chlorophenyl for HLsal3], ligands with Ru(H)(CO)(Cl)(PPh3)(3) afforded complexes of composition [(L-sal)Ru(CO)(Cl)(PPh3)] and (L-sal)(2)Ru where the N,N,O donor tridentate (L-sal) ligands coordinated the metal centre facially and meridionally, respectively. Stepwise formation of [(L-sal)(2)Ru] has been ascertained. Reaction of 1-{[2-(arylazo)phenyl]iminomethyl}-2-napthol, HLnap, 2, [where H represents the dissociable protons upon complexation and aryl groups of HLnap are phenyl for HLnap1, p-methylphenyl for HLnap2, and p-chlorophenyl for HLnap3], ligands with Ru(H)(CO)(Cl)(PPh3)(3) afforded exclusively the complexes of composition [(L-nap)Ru(CO)(Cl)(PPh3)], where N,N,O donor tridentate (L-nap) was facially coordinated. The ligand 1-{[2-(phenylazo)phenyl]aminomethyl}-2-phenol, HL, 3, was prepared by reducing the aldimine function of HLsal1. Reaction of HL with Ru(PPh3)(3)Cl-2 afforded new azosalen complex of Ru(III) in concert with regiospecific oxygenation of phenyl ring of HL. All the new ligands were characterized by analytical and spectroscopic techniques. The complexes were characterized by analytical and spectroscopic techniques and subsequently confirmed by the determination of X-ray structures of selected complexes.
