Abstract

The structure of CoI(NO)2(P(C6H5)3) has been determined at low temperature (-170 °C) and is compared with the structure of a similar disordered complex, CoI(NO)2(P(C6H5)2R′) (R′ = CH2CH2P(0)(C6H5)2), which was claimed to possess strongly bent nitrosyl ligands. The title complex has two nearly linear NO groups with Co-N(l)-0(2) = 165.2 (2)’ and Co-N(2)-0(2) = 163.3 (2). The compound crystallized in space group C32h-C2/m with a = 17.356 (8) ‘, b = 10.677 (3) A, c = 20.998 (10) A, β = 96.93 (1), and Z = 8. On the basis of 4020 unique reflections with [formula omitted], the structure was refined with use of full-matrix, least-squares methods to R(F) = 0.031 and Rw(F) = 0.025.
