Studies on 1, 10- phenanthroline complexes of some diaryltellurium dihalides
The synthesis and structural features of some 1, 10-phenanthroline complexes of diaryltellurium dihalides, R2TeX2.Phen (R = p-hydroxyphenyl, 3-methyl-4-hydroxyphenyl, p-methoxyphenyl and X = Cl,Br,I) are reported. These complexes have been subjected to elemental analyses, conductance and cryoscopic measurements, infra-red and proton magnetic resonance spectral studies. Solution studies reveal the weak to 1:1 electrolyte type behaviour of these complexes in solution. Spectral studies suggest the linkage of phenanthroline to the tellurium atom through the nitrogen atoms. An octahedral environment around the tellurium atom has been suggested.
