Heterobimetallic complexes composed only of first-row transition metals [(TMTAA)V(IV)═O→M(II)Py5Me2](OTf)2 (TMTAA = 7,16-dihydro-6,8,15,17-tetramethyldibenzo[b,i][1,4,8,11]tetraazacyclotetradecine; Py5Me2 = 2,6-bis(1,1-bis(2-pyridyl)ethyl)pyridine; M = Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II); OTf = trifluoromethanesulfonate) have been synthesized through a dative interaction between a terminal oxido and M(II) metal centers. This is the first series of V(IV)═O→M(II) heterobimetallic complexes containing an unsupported oxido bridge. Among these five complexes, only V(IV)═O→Fe(II) (3b) has a clear new absorption band upon formation of the dinuclear species (502 nm, ε = 1700 M(-1) cm(-1)). This f..View full abstract
