2,6-Disubstituted pyridines, where the substituents are aldehyde, ketone or ester functions, form bidentate chelate complexes with the transition metal moieties fac-(ReX)-X-I(CO)(3) (X = halogen). 2-Substituted pyridines, where the substituents are aldehyde or ester functions, form similar types of complexes with the isoelectronic transition metal moieties fac-(ReX)-X-I(CO), and (PtXMe3)-X-IV. The fac-(ReX)-X-I(CO)(3) complexes of the 2,6-disubstituted pyridine ligands were shown by H-1 NMR spectra to undergo metallotropic shifts whereby the Re coordination switches between adjacent ON pairs of the ONO ligand donor set. Rates and activation energies of these fluxional shifts were measured by dynamic NMR bandshape analysis. Magnitudes of DeltaG(double dagger) (298.15 K) were in the range 59-64 kJ mol(-1) for the diketone and diester ligands. The dialdehyde ligand, 2,6-pyridinedicarboxaldehyde, formed an appreciably less-stable Re-I complex that was highly fluxional and showed a tendency to dissociation at ambient solution temperatures. The unsymmetrical diester ligand, methylethyldipicolinate, formed two distinct Re-I complex species in solution, in the approximate abundance ratio of 2:1, the more abundant structure involving coordination to the carbonyl of the ethyl ester function. This particular complex forms exclusively in the solid state and an X-ray crystal structure of [ReBr(CO)(3)L] (L = methylethyldipicolinate) is reported.
