Abstract

The complex dibutyltin 2-oxo-2-phenylacetic acid 4-hydroxybenzohydrazone has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H and 13C NMR, and X-ray single-crystal diffraction studies. The crystal structure belongs to triclinic, space group P-1 with π‘Ž = 9 . 3 2 2 0 ( 1 0 )  Å, 𝑏 = 9 . 8 7 7 9 ( 1 1 )  Å, 𝑐 = 1 5 . 9 4 0 1 ( 1 7 )  Å, 𝛽 = 9 7 . 0 9 3 0 ( 1 0 ) ∘ , 𝑍 = 2 , 𝑉 = 1 4 2 7 . 6 ( 3 )  Å3, 𝐷 𝑐 = 1 . 4 1 3  mg/cm3, πœ‡ = 0 . 9 3 6  mm−1, 𝐹 ( 0 0 0 ) = 6 2 8 , 𝑅 = 0 . 1 1 5 8 , and 𝑀 𝑅 = 0 . 2 5 2 2 . X-ray analysis indicates that O(2), N(2), O(4), and O(4)#1 from the ligand and O(5) from ethanol molecule are in the equatorial positions; the axial positions are occupied by two n-butyl groups. It shows a distorted pentagonal bipyramid configuration with seven-coordination for central tin atom. Fascinatingly, the supramolecular infrastructures are observed, which exist as two-dimensional sheets assembled from the organometallic subunits through intermolecular and intramolecular O–HX or C–HX (X = O or N) hydrogen bonds.
