Synthesis and characterization of dianionic hexacoordinate silicon(iv) complexes of substituted catechols, flavones, and fluorone: X-ray crystal structures of [(n -C3H7) 2NH2] 2[(Cl 4C 6O 2) 3Si] · 3 CH 3CN and [(n-C 3H 7) 2NH 2] 2[(Br4C6O2) 3Si] · 2 (CH3)2SO

Reaction of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) with substituted catechols (I-X), 7,8-dihydroxyflavone (XI), 3,3',4'-trihydroxyflavone (XII), 3',4',5,7- tetrahydroxyflavone (XIII), and 9-phenyl-2,3,7-trihydroxy-6-fluorone (XIV) in the presence of an amine (molar ratio 1:3:2) in acetonitrile affords the corresponding dianionic hexacoordinate silicon(IV) complexes 1-15 having a "SiO 6" structural fragment. The dianionic silicates were isolated as di-n-propylammonium/triethylammonium/di-n-butylammonium salts and were characterized by elemental analysis and various spectroscopic data (IR, 1H, 13C, and 29Si NMR). The solid state structures of compounds [(n-C 3H 7) 2NH 2] 2[{Cl 4C 6O 2} 3Si] (1) and [(n-C 3H 7) 2NH 2] 2[{Br 4C 6O 2} 3Si] (2) were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Both 1 and 2 crystallize in the monoclinic space group C2/c and reveal (i) bidentate mode of ligation, (ii) octahedral coordination around silicon, and (iii) hydrogen bonding features.
