Abstract

The interaction of [VO(acac)2] with 2,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)-4-methylphenol (L1H3) or 6,6/-methylenebis(4-tert-butyl-2-(hydroxymethyl)phenol) (L2H4) in refluxing toluene afforded, following work-up in ethanol, the complexes [VOL1]2 (1) and {[VO(acac)(HOEt)](VO)L2]}2 (2), respectively. Use of 4-[3,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl]benzoic acid (L3H2) or 4-[3,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl]benzosulfonic acid (L4H2) with [VOCl3] in refluxing acetonitrile, followed by methanol and THF work-up, afforded the complexes [Et3NH][VO(OMe)L3]2 (3) and [Et3NH][VO(OMe)L4]2 (4), respectively. The interaction of [VOSO4] and L3H2 in refluxing acetonitrile afforded, with extraction into methanol, the complex [VO(OMe)L3]2 (5). The molecular structures of 2, 3 and 5 have been determined; the structure of 1 has been reported previously. The complexes in this study have been determined to be of low toxicity using in vitro cell assays with 50% cytotoxicity values (CC50) values in the range 56 – 126 µM.
