The lack of general methods of synthesis has been the primary obstacle in the development of the nitride chemistry for the ®rst-row transition metals. Recently, we have found (Birk & Bendix, 2003; Bendix, 2003) that N-atom transfer from the easily accessible [Mn(salen)(N)] to [CrCl3(THF)3] followed by ligand metathesis is a very general synthetic route to chro- mium(V)± nitride complexes. By this method, the uncharged complexes [Cr(quinald)2(N)] (quinald is 2-methylquinolin-8- olate), (I), and [Cr(tpno)2(N)] (tpno is 2-sul®dopyridine Torben Birk,a Henning Osholm Sùrensenb³ and JesperBendixa* aInorganic Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen,Universitetsparken 5, DK-2100 Copenhagen, Denmark, and bCentre for Crystallographic Studies, Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen, Universitetsparken 5, DK-2100 Copenhagen, Denmark Two new chromium(V)±nitride complexes with a coordination sphere completed by bidentate ligands have been synthesized Complexes (I) and (II) are both ®ve-coordinate, with and structurally characterized.

Complex (I) crystallizes with the CrV N bond on a at sites with twofold rotational symmetry and all CrÐN bond crystallographic twofold axis, making the basal ligators directions aligned with the crystallographic b axis.

Interestingly, even though complex (II) has dobis(2-sul®dopyridine N-oxide)chromium(V), [Cr(C5H4N- the possibility for a molecular mirror plane (Fig. 2), this is not OS)2(N)], crystallizes with the molecules on general positions utilized in the crystal packing. The short Cr N bonds of and has an equatorial S2O2 coordination environment, which 1.5609 (11) and 1.5591 (11) AÊ in (II) and (I), respectively, are is unprecedented among nitride complexes of the ®rst-row both within the range of those found for other ®ve-coordinate transition metals. In both systems, Cr N bonds are short at ca CrV±nitride complexes and ca 0.05 AÊ longer than the average MnV N bond length. In both structures, the nitride ligands The nitride ligand (N3À) is the strongest electron-donating ligand known (Nugent & Mayer, 1988). It also stands out by having a much more developed chemistry of second- and third-row transition metals than of their ®rst-row congeners.
The ®rst example of a nitride complex of the ®rst-row tran- sition metals, [Cr(salen)(N)], was therefore prepared as late as 1981 by photolysis of the corresponding CrIII±azide complex (Arshankow & Poznjak, 1981). A few other CrV± and MnV± nitride complexes have been prepared by this route, e.g.

This contrast to the parent square-pyramidal coordination of chromium, is caused by the steric demands of the 2-methyl substituents in (I). The packing of the [Cr(quinald)2(N)] molecules is also in¯uenced by the methyl groups, which prevent the  stacking dominating the structure of [Cr(quinolin-8-olate)2(N)].
