The synthesis of two Fe(III) complexes with a doubly deprotonated polydentate of the acylhydrazone class is described. The first complex was obtained by hydrolyzing the previously synthesized high-spin pentagonal-bipyramidal (PBP) [Fe(Hdapsox)Cl-2] (H(2)dapsox = 2',2"'-(2,6-pyridindiyldiethylidene)dioxamohydrazide); the second was obtained by a template synthesis in a base medium starting from iron(III) chloride, 2,6-diacetylpyridine (dap) and semioxamazide (sox) (in a 1:1:2 molar ratio). Hydrolysis, during which the semioxamazide amide group changed into a carboxyl group, resulted in the mu -oxo-diiron(III) complex [Fe(dapoamh)(H2O)(2)O . 3H(2)O (H(2)dapoamh = dioxo-2,6-pyridinediylbis(ethylidyne-1-hydrazinyl-2-ylidene)diacetic acid) with a doubly deprotonated acylhydrazone that retained its PBP geometry. The [Fe(dapsox)Cl].H2O complex obtained in the latter case has a square-pyramidal geometry with an asymmetrically coordinated, but still doubly deprotonated dapsox as a tetradentate.... The structure of the [Fe(dapoamh)(H2O)(2)O . 3H(2)O complex determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis in this work represents the first mu -oxo-dimer of a PBP geometry with an acyclic polydentate. This is also the first diamagnetic Cl-oxo-diiron(III) complex ever obtained; this not only points to the super-exchange interaction over an ore-oxygen, but also to a significant interaction between the two low-spin Fe(III) ion d-orbitals. Based on the EPR spectra, it has been established that the monomer [Fe(dapsox)Cl].H2O complex is among the rare Fe(III) complexes with an intermediate spin state S = 3/2, and that a temperature decrease causes it to change to a low-spin complex, i.e. it demonstrates a cross-over (S = 3/2 reversible arrow S = 1/2). Further characterization has been done by IR and UV-VIS spectroscopy, and also by measuring the magnetic momentum at 293, 195 and 77 K. The results of this work, as well as of the previously synthesized Cu(II), Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes with H(2)dapsox, Hdapsox(-) and dapsox(2-), have led us to the conclusion that the doubly deprotonated acylhydrazone ligand has a considerably stronger field than its neutral or monoanionic forms.
