Charge Localisation in Heavy Alkali Metal Ion Complexes of 4,4′-Biphenyldicarboxylate

Abstract

Crystal structure determinations on the isomorphous RbI and CsI complexes of 4,4′-biphenyldicarboxylate have shown the carboxylate entities to be coordinated in an unusual fashion where both oxygen atoms are in a tetrahedral environment indicative of negative charge localisation on each. The metal ions also show a highly irregular form of six-coordination, while the biphenyl units are planar, seemingly as a result of attractive interactions between the ortho hydrogen atoms.
