The structure of [Co(NH3)sN02]C20 4 is solved and refined (space group I m m m , a = 7.428(2), b = 9.790(3), c = 6.568(1) ~, V = 47Z 6( 2) A 3, Z = 2; R 1 = 0.0177, wR 2 = O.0279 for F 2 > 4cr(F 2); R1 = 0.1177, wR 2 = 0.0643 for all data; residual electron density from 0.125 to -0.140 e/~4 3). Specific contacts in the structure are analyzed. Crystal chemical interpretation is suggested to explain the occurrence o f photodecomposition rather than photochemical bond isomerization under the action of light in cobalt(Ill) nitropentammoniate oxalate crystals, in contrast to all previously investigated cobalt(HI) nitropentammoniates.

INTRODUCTION Co(III) nitropentammoniates are interesting in the action of visible (blue region) and UV radiation on the crystals of their anion salts (chloride, bromide, iodide, nitrate, chloride nitrate), leading to a reversible intramolecular nitro-nitrito isomerization [1-9]. In this reaction, the nitro group is coordinated to cobalt via oxygen (nitrito coordination) but not via nitrogen (nitro coordination). In solutions, photodecomposition of the complex occurs along with photoisomerization [6, 10, 11]. In crystals, isomerization is a homogeneous process, forming a continuous series of solid solutions of the two isomer forms [3, 4, 12]. Although this is an inner-spheric reaction, its rate may be affected by the closest crystalline surroundings [13]. Earlier, a comparative kinetic study was performed for solid state isomerization in the series chloride-bromide-iodide-nitrate-chloride nitrate; it was shown that the reaction rate depends on the anion [2, 14, 15]. The dependence of the rate of the solid state nitrito--nitro isomerization on the inner-spheric anion was also examined in [7]. It was shown that the isomerization rate differs between various polymorphous modifications [14]. Unlike other nitropentammoniates studied previously, which undergo nitro-nitrito bond isomerization under the action of light, Co(III) nitropentammoniate oxalate crystals decompose. This is evident from changes in the IR spectra of the nitro isomer after UV irradiation of the sample (Fig. 1). In principle, the nitrito isomer of cobalt(III) pentammoniate oxalate may be obtained by direct precipitation from a cool weakly acid solution containing cobalt(III) carbonatopentammoniate nitrate by adding sodium nitrite, as is usually done to prepare all other known nitrito isomers of cobalt(III) pentammoniates [16]. The question naturally arises as to why light-induced nitro--nitrito bond isomerization occurs in the previously studied crystals and solutions but not in the cobalt(III) nitropentammoniate crystals, whereas photodecomposition takes place in the latter crystals and former solutions but not in the former crystals. As stated in the literature, the possibility of photochemical reactions in molecular crystals often depends not only on the properties (such as absorption spectrum) of individual molecules but also on the environment of the molecule in a crystal. Examples were given of two chemically identical but crystallographically independent molecules

with different crystal surroundings, in which only one molecule undergoes tight-induced transformation while the other remains inert [17, 18]. A comparison of the optical absorption spectra of sofid [Co(NH3)5NO2]C204 with those of other nitropentzmmoniates (e.g., [Co(NH3)sNO2]Br2) fails to explain whyphotoisomerization does not take place in oxalates, at least by absorption of fight in the blue part of the spectrum, in the region of d - d transitions, where all cobalt(Ill) nitropentzmmoniates absorb similarly. Photodecomposition of solid cobalt nitrozmmoniate oxalate may be promoted by the special properties of the oxalate anion compared to halide ions or to the nitrate ion studied earlier. These properties alone, however, are insufficient to provide photodecomposition in crystals. An effective phototransfer of an electron from anion to cation requires a favorable mutual arrangement of the anion and cation in the structure. Thus the reason for the specific behavior of crystalline cobalt(III) nitropentammoniate oxalate under irradiation may be sought in peculiarities of the environment of the complex cation in a crystal structure. To verify this hypothesis, we grew single crystals of [Co(NH3)5NO2]C204, determined their crystal structure by the single crystal X-ray diffraction method, and carried out a crystal chemical analysis. EXPERIMENTAL Cobalt(HI) nitropentammoniate oxalate crystals have poor solubility in water. The crystals were grown using the diffusion method, described earlier for the preparation of lead [19, 20] and silver [21] oxalate single crystals. Solutions of cobalt(III) nitropentammoniate nitrate (0.1 M) and sodium oxalate (0.1 M) were slowly fed into a reactor 334

filled with water where cobalt(Ill) nitropentammoniate crystals were gown. The time of one diffusion synthesis was several weeks. Cobalt(III) nitropentammoniate nitrate was synthesized from cobalt(III) carbonatopentammoniate nitrate as described in [16]. Cobalt(III) carbonatopentammoniate nitrate was synthesized from cobalt(II) nitrate, ammonium carbonate, and ammonia as described in [22]. The composition of the samples synthesized was monitored by the IR spectra and powder diffractograms. [Co(NH3)5NO2]C204 resulted as thin needles yellowish brown in color and typically 0.210.01x0.01 mm in size. Despite the small size and unfavorable habit, we managed to perform single crystal X-ray analysis for one of the crystals. For a representativity test, we also recorded a powder diffractogram of the whole sample; this diffractogram was in fair agreement with the one calculated from single crystal data. Data were collected on an Euraf-Nonius CAD-4 four-circle automatic diffractometer at room temperature [MOKa, 2 = 0.71073 /~; 0 / 20 scan mode for 20 from 6.88 to 49.02*; - 8 -< h 4cr(F 2) and R 1 = 0.1177, wR2 = 0.0643 for all data collected. The weighting scheme was w = 1/o2(F2). Residual electron density Was from 0.125 to -0.140 e/~ 3. Table 1 lists the atomic coordinates and isotropic displacement parameters of nonhydrogen atoms; Table 2 gives anisotropic displacement parameters. Figure 2 shows the atomic numbering and connectivity scheme as well as selected bond lengths and angles for the complex cation and oxalate anion. The type of crystal lattice was unambiguously established from the intensity ratio of nonzero reflections, although few of these were measured because of the extremely small size of the single crystal and the difficulty of obtaining larger crystals of good quality. The absence of secondary extinctions, defining the glide planes in the/-lattice, did not allow us to unambiguously choose the space group from Immm, Imm2,1222. In space group Immm (Rf = 1.8%), the cation of the complex is disordered at the site of the NO 2 group due to the presence of a mirror plane m, which is perpendicular to the X axis through the NO 2 nitrogen atom and the cobalt atom. The fact that this is a mononitro rather than dinitro complex follows from the cation:anion ratio, which is 1:1. Further calculations with space groups I2mm and/222 gave considerably increased R factors (6 and 10%, respectively). Due to statistical disorientation of the cations and few measured Ihld, we failed to reliably locate the hydrogen atoms and to obtain more exact Co-NO 2 and Co-trans-NH 3 bond lengths and geometry of the NO 2 group. We tried to eliminate the disorder by using a model suggesting twinning, which is not detectable with a polarizing microscope. However, this considerably worsened the results of the refinement (gave increased R factors and errors of bond length and bond angle determination and less

realistic values of these parameters). Should a larger single crystal be grown, the accuracy of bond length and bond angle determination might be improved. Then one would expect to obtain more reliable information on disordering of complex cations in the structure and more exact geometrical parameters. The relative arrangement of the oxalate ions and cations of the complex would not change even if the space group and atomic coordinates were re-refined. DISCUSSION OF THE STRUCTURE The crystal structure of [Co(NH3)5NO2]C204 is closest cubic packing of complex cations in the unit cell obtained from the initial cell via the matrix (1, 0, 1; 0, 1, 0; -1, 0, 1). The oxalate anions occupy all octahedral voids. Thus the structure is of NaC1 type. It is slightly closer-packed than the structures of other cobalt(IH) nitropentammoniates studied earlier. The packing coefficient (calculated with the KPACK program [25]) is 0.74. For comparison, the packing coefficients of the iodide (orthorhombic modification [26]), chloride nitrate [27], chloride [28], and bromide [28] are 0.67, 0.68, 0.70, and 0.72 [29], respectively. The environment of the complex cation in the structure of [Co(NH3)sNO2]C204 is depicted in Fig. 3. Projections of the structure on the plane of the NO 2 group and on the perpendicular plane are shown. Designations of atoms are given in accordance with the symmetry codes of Table 3. Selected distances defining the contacts of the complex cation with the environment in the structure are listed in Table 4. For comparison, Fig. 4 shows the surroundings of the complex cation in isostructural nitropentammoniates: chloride (a), bromide (b), chloride nitrate (c), and iodide in the orthorhombic modification (d) [29]. Table 5 lists, also for comparison, selected contacts of the complex cation with the surroundings in the crystal structures of [Co(NH3)sNO2]XY [XY = C12, Br2, I2, CI(NO3) , (NO3)2] [29]. In all structures whose fragments are shown in Fig. 4, the halogen atoms lie just above and below the nitro nitrogen, the nitro oxygens form long hydrogen bonds with the c/s-NH3 ligands of the neighboring cations, t r a n s - N H 3 form hydrogen bonds with the anions, and c i s - N H 3 are hydrogen-bonded with the oxygen atoms of the nitro groups of the adjacent cations. The environment of the complex cation in [Co(NH3)sNO2]C204 is denser than that in the other salts of the series; the contacts with the neighboring atoms, in particular, with atoms involved in hydrogen bonds, are shorter. The arrangement of the oxalate anions relative to the nitro group is such that there is far less "empty space" near the nitro 336

Symmetry operations used to determine the atoms are given in Table 3. group than in the structures of the other ammoniates studied previously. The oxalate anions "block" the nitro group, hindering its rotation and preventing it from changing its coordination to cobalt. One can assume that another hindrance is the greater "rigidity" of the structure relative to the structures of the other zmmoniates, preventing a structure distortion that could provide rotation of the nitro group, which takes place in the other nitroammoniates of the series. 337

At the same time, the mutual arrangement of the oxalate anions and complex cations seems to be favorable for a photochemical redox reaction due to an electron transfer from anion to cation. Photochemical decomposition of the complex compounds of transition metals, including eobalt(III) compounds, in which the oxalate ion is an inner-spheric ligand, is well known from the literature [30, 31].

[Co(NHa)5NO2]C204 crystals, it is necessary to distinguish between the essentially steric factors and the factors determined by the redox and spectral properties of the oxalate anion. For this purpose, it would be interesting to investigate the radiation-induced behavior of any cobalt(III) nitropentammoniate with an anion blocking the nitro group in a crystal structure, thus sterically hindering inner-spheric bond photoisomerization as this is done by the oxalate anion, but not taking part in the redox photodecomposition of the complex. CONCLUSIONS Determination and analysis of the structure of [Co(NH3)5NO2]C204ill comparison with the structures of the complexes containing other anions led to the following conclusions. The nonoccurrence of nitro-nitrito isomerization and the occurrence of photodecomposition under UV irradiation in crystals of this compound may be explained by the relative position of the oxalate anions and complex cations in the structure. The position of the oxalate ion prevents the NO 2 group from rotating and changing its coordination. The structure of the oxalate is denser (packing coefficient = 0.74) than that of isomerizing nitropentammoniates (packing coefficient = 0.67-0.72), whereas the hydrogen bonds are shorter, making the crystal structure more rigid and hindering rotation of the NO 2 group at least by structure distortion (as it occurs in isomerizing chloride, bromide, iodide, and chloride nitrate).
