Structural characterization of the reaction products of vanadium(II) and endrin as the two isomers of 1,8,exo-9,10,11-pentachloropentacyclo[22.214.171.124,6.O2,7O4,10]dodecan-5-one
MetadataShow full item record
Two dechlorinated products (B) and (D), formed in the reaction between endrin (C12H8Cl6O) and vanadium(II) for the purpose of confirmation of identity, are shown by single-crystal X-ray structure determination to be isomers of the title compound, C12H9Cl5O. Crystals of both are monoclinic, P21/c. For isomer (B), a 7.432(8), b 12.76(1), c 14.55(2) Š, ߠ108.32(9)ꬠZ=4; R was 0.038 for 2594 observed reflections. For isomer (D), a 9.037(4), b 12.004(4), c 14.436(6) Š, ߠ124.91(2)ଠZ= 4; R was 0.041 for 1826 reflections. The geometries of the two isomers are compared.
