- 4-[Bis(3-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)meth-yl]benzene-1,2-diol (2011)
- The title compound, C25H20N4O2, is a ditopic ortho-hydroquinone-based bis(pyrazol-1-yl)methane ligand. The dihedral angles between the planes of the pyrazole rings and their attached phenyl rings are 17.4 (3) and 5.9 (4)°. The pyrazole rings make a dihedral angle of 87.84 (16)°. One of the two hydroxy groups forms an intramolecular hydrogen bond to the other hydroxy group, whereas the second is involved in an intermolecular O—H[cdots, three dots, centered]N hydrogen bond. As a result of these intermolecular hydrogen bonds, helical chains running along the b axis are formed.
- (Acetonitrile-κN)chloridobis[2-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl-κ2 C 1,N]iridium(III) (2011)
- The IrIII atom of the title compound, [Ir(C11H8N)2Cl(CH3CN)], displays a distorted octahedral coordination. The pyridyl groups are in trans positions [N—Ir—N = 173.07 (10)°], while the phenyl groups are trans with respect to the acetonitrile and chloride groups [C—Ir—N = 178.13 (11) and C—Ir—Cl = 176.22 (9)°]. The pyridylphenyl groups only show a small deviation from planarity, with the dihedral angle between the planes of the two six-membered rings in each pyridylphenyl group being 5.6 (2) and 5.8 (1)°. The crystal packing shows intermolecular C—H[cdots, three dots, centered]Cl, C—H[cdots, three dots, centered]π(acetonitrile) and C—H[cdots, three dots, centered]π(pyridylphenyl) contacts.
