Synthesis and Structural Study of Triphenylbismuth Bis (Salicylate)


The crystal of triphenylbismuth bis (Salicylate) pentavalent was synthesized from the reaction of triphenylbismuth dichloride with salicylic acid dissolved in methylene chloride at room temperature. The molecular and crystal structures of triphenylbismuth bis (Salicylate) were determined by X-ray diffraction analysis. This compound crystallizes in the triclinic space group with crystallographic parameters: a = 11.2937 (3) , b = 14.6516 (3) , c = 17.8253 (4) , α = 78.2958 (7)o, β = 76.232 (6)o, γ = 85.351 (6)o, u=6.332mm, V = 2803.59 (11) , Z=2, Dc=1.693g/cm, F(000)=1392, T=293(2)K. The final residual factor is 0.0602 for 5806 reflexions with . The bismuth atom of the compound has a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal configuration.
