Transition metal complexes with high electron donating tridentate pincer type ligands have been the subject of considerable research for their role in catalysis. The reactivity of pincer ligand, 2,6-bis(di-tert-butyl-phosphinomethyl) pyridine to transition-metal, representative lanthanide and actinide halide compds. are being studied in our labs. The complexes are analyzed by NMR, IR and elemental anal. techniques. For some complexes single crystal X-ray diffraction anal. was performed. Solid structure provides the mol. geometry of the compds. and also shows that in all complexes the pyridine unit in the ligand is coordinated to the metal center. Here we report the complexation study of Co(II) with the PNP ligand.
