abstract

  • The pentafluorooxotellurate compound ReO(2)(OTeF(5))(3) has been synthesized from the reaction of ReO(2)F(3) with B(OTeF(5))(3) and structurally characterized in solution by (19)F and (125)Te NMR spectroscopy and in the solid state by Raman spectroscopy. The NMR and vibrational spectroscopic findings are consistent with a trigonal bipyramidal arrangement in which the oxygen atoms and an OTeF(5) group occupy the equatorial plane. The (19)F and (125)Te NMR spectra show that the axial and equatorial OTeF(5) groups of ReO(2)(OTeF(5))(3) are fluxional and are consistent with intramolecular exchange by means of a pseudorotation. The Lewis acid behavior of ReO(2)(OTeF(5))(3) is demonstrated by reaction with OTeF(5)(-). The resulting cis-ReO(2)(OTeF(5))(4)(-) anion was characterized as the tetramethylammonium salt in solution by (19)F and (125)Te NMR spectroscopy and in the solid state by Raman spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. The compound crystallizes in the triclinic system, space group P&onemacr;, with a = 13.175(7) Å, b = 13.811(5) Å, c = 15.38(1) Å, alpha = 72.36(5)(o), beta = 68.17(5)(o), gamma = 84.05(4)(o), V = 2476(2) Å(3), D(calc) = 3.345 g cm(-)(3), Z = 4, R = 0.0547. The coordination sphere about Re(VII) in cis-ReO(2)(OTeF(5))(4)(-) is a pseudooctahedron in which the Re-O double bond oxygens are cis to one another.
