Abstract

Heterobimetallic complexes containing alkali, alkaline-earth, and divalent europium metals utilizing the perfluoro-tert-butoxide (PFTB) ligand following the general formula, [AM(PFTB)3(co-ligand)x] (A=Na, K; M=Mg, Sr, Ba, Eu; co-ligand=THF, toluene), have been isolated. These compounds sublime at low temperatures with low residual weight indicating their potential as metal-organic chemical-vapor deposition (MOCVD) precursors. The complexes have unique molecular architectures that are strongly influenced by M-F interactions, as was verified in the solid state by using X-ray crystallography. The significance of these interactions were further reinforced by bond-valence sums analysis and 19F VT-NMR spectroscopy, in which rotational energies of 18.75 and 19.08 kcal mol-1 were measured.
