Abstract

A series of NdIII and EuIII complexes containing achiral or chiral dithiocarbamato (dtc) ligands, [Ln(Xdtc)3(NN)] {Ln = Nd or Eu; X = dimethyl- (Me2), pyrrolidine- (pyr), or (S)-prolinol- (S-proOH); NN = 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) or 2,2′-bipyridine (bpy)}, were prepared and their crystal structures and spectroscopic properties, in particular the natural circular dichroism (CD) and magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), were investigated. The crystal structures of the complexes analyzed by the X-ray diffraction method showed an 8-coordinate geometry around the LnIII center with comparable structural parameters to one another and to the related complexes reported previously. These complexes exhibited similar spectral patterns in their absorption, natural CD and MCD spectra in solution. Weak but characteristic sharp f–f transition bands were observed in the absorption and MCD spectra, but no CD signals associated with these transitions were observed even in the S-proOHdtc complexes. The MCD spectral pattern of the EuIII complexes revealed a local C2v symmetry around the LnIII center in solution, in contrast to the aqua and the analogous β-diketonato EuIII complexes.
