Periodic Report Summary 1 - FLUOCOORCHEM (Fluorinated Weakly Coordinating Anions for Coordination Chemistry of Unusual Ligands)

The goal of this project is to prepare complexes or co-crystals of unusual (and sometimes unstable) ligands. The obtained coordination compounds stabilized by fluorinated weakly coordinating anions are synthesised, manipulated, and crystallised at low temperatures by special experimental techniques. Furthermore, crystalline samples are subjected to low-temperature single-crystal X-ray diffraction in order to obtain a detailed structural information on the ligands or the interactions between the ligands and central cations. Thereby, the fundamental knowledge and understanding of the structural chemistry and the reactivity of selected ligand molecules are significantly extended.
