The reactions of potentially tridentate ligands, derived from N-arylpiperazines, with [NEt4]2[Re(CO)3Br3] have been investigated. The compounds [Re(CO)3{NC5H4CH2N(H) CH2CH2-Fphenpip}]Br (1Br), [Re(CO)3{(NC5H4CH2)2 NCH2CH2CH2-CH3 OphenpipH}]Br2·2CH2Cl2· H2O (2Br2·2CH2Cl2·H2O) and [Re(CO)3{(CH3N2C3H2 CH2)(O2CCH2)N(CH2)3- CH3OphenpipH2}]BrCl·1.5MeOH· H2O(3BrCl·1.5MeOH·H2O) have been prepared and structurally characterized. The compounds exhibitfac[Re(CO)3N3] or fac-[Re(CO)3N2O] coordination geometry in the cationic molecular units. Both compounds are chemically robust and survive histidine and cysteine challenges with greater than 95% recovery.
