Complexes of Some Metal Nitrates with 4′-Nitrobenzo-15-Crown-5


Complexes of Ag, Cu, Ca, Nd, and Er nitrates with 4′-nitrobenzo-15-crown-5 (NB15C5) were synthesized and their IR absorption spectra were studied. Macrocyclic conformation in the complexes was determined. The structures of the complexes were proposed with account of the data of IR absorption spectra and of the previous X-ray diffraction study. In the Ag, Cu, and Ca complexes, NB15C5 was found in the inner sphere, while in the Nd and Er complexes, it was found to be the outer-sphere ligand.
