Abstract

(2-Pyrolylmethane)(2-pyrrolylmethyl)imine (2) and an equimolar amount of 2-formylpyrrole give, in the presence of nickel (II) in hot methanol, the novel tripyrrolic nickel(II) complex [SP-4]-[(2-dipyrrinato-kappa(2)N,N’-methyl)(2-pyrrolylmethanato-kappa N’’’imine-kappa N’’’]nickel(II) (4). This planar complex had been characterized by X-ray crystallography, a mechanism for its formation is proposed and its mass spectral behavior is discussed.
