Depositor Comments

The preparation of triphenylbismuth(V) 3 a-k and antimony(V) 4 e-k bis-carboxy ester complexes is described. A range of studies in solution suggest that the diastereoselective formation of (RR,SS)-3 a-j is governed by the thermodynamic stability of rapidly interconverting epimeric species. Diastereoselectivity is absent in the case of the corresponding Sb complexes, leading to the conclusion that a combination of both ligand-ligand (steric) and metal-ligand (hyperconjugative) interactions govern stereoselectivity. The formation of homochiral complexes (RR,SS)-3 a-j is rationalised using a simple model, invoking for the first time a palindromic BiPh3 propeller moiety, which correlates the chirality of the trans axial carboxy-ester ligands. The Xray crystal structures of both hetero- and homochiral diastereoisomeric antimony complexes (4 h and 4 i, respectively) are presented in support of this model.
