Chemistry and Pharmacology
Se2NBr3, a planar molecule shaped liked dividers, was formed by the reaction of SeBr4 with N(SiMe3)3, which reduced the selenium to the trivalent state. Under the same conditions, Se2NCl5 was obtained by the reaction of SeCl4 with N(SiMe3)3, retaining the tetravalent state of selenium. The molecule is formed by two edge-sharing pseudotrigonal bipyramids with selenium as their central atoms. Se2NCl5 reacts with PPh4Cl to form the Se2NCl-6 ion by the addition of a Cl- ion to only one of the two selenium atoms, resulting in pseudooctahedral coordination of this atom. Ab initio calculations for all the compounds reported confirm the experimentally determined structures.
