Fifteen half-sandwich scorpionate complexes [(L)M(NCMe)3](BF4)n (L = tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)methane, TpmMe,Men = 2, 1M, M = Mn, Fe, Co, Ni; L = tris(3-phenylpyrazol-1-yl)methane, TpmPhn = 2, 2M, M = Mn, Fe, Co, Ni; L = hydrotris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)borate, [TpMe,Me]n = 1, 3M, M = Fe, Co, Ni; L = hydrotris(3-phenyl-5-methylpyrazol-1-yl)borate, [TpPh,Me]n = 1, 4M, M = Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) were prepared by addition of the tripodal ligands to solvated [M(NCMe)x]2+ (M = Mn, x = 4; M = Fe, Co, Ni, x = 6) precursor complexes. The product complexes were characterized by 1H NMR (except M = Mn), UV–vis–NIR, and FTIR spectroscopy. The structures of 2Mn2Ni3Fe3Co, and 4Fe were determined by X-ray crystallography. The data were consistent with complexes of high-spin divalent metal ions in idealized piano-stool geometries in all cases. Consequent lability of the acetonitrile ligands will enable use of these complexes as synthetic precursors and as catalysts. Comparison to previously reported structures of 1Fe1Co2Fe, and 2Co, the triflate salt analogues of 4Co and 4Ni, as well as related sandwich complexes (e.g., [(TpMe,Me)2M]) and solvated metal dications [M(NCMe)6]2+ reveals numerous trends in M–N bond lengths. Primary among these are the Irving–Williams series, with significant structural effects also arising from ligand charge and sterics. Systematic trends in spectroscopic data were also observed which further elucidate these issues.
