Abstract

A mixture of [Tc(NO)F5]2- and [Tc(NO)(NH 3)4F]+ is formed during the reaction of pertechnetate with acetohydroxamic acid (Haha) in aqueous HF. The blue pentafluoridonitrosyltechnetate(II) has been isolated in crystalline form as potassium and rubidium salts, while the orange-red ammine complex crystallizes as bifluoride or PF6- salts. Reactions of [Tc(NO)F 5]2- salts with HCl give the corresponding [Tc(NO)Cl 4/5]-/2- complexes, while reflux in neat pyridine (py) results in the formation of the technetium(I) cation [Tc(NO)(py) 4F]+, which can be crystallized as hexafluoridophosphate. The same compound can be synthesized directly from pertechnetate, Haha, HF, and py or by a ligand-exchange procedure starting from [Tc(NO)(NH3) 4F](HF2). The technetium(I) cation [Tc(NO)(NH 3)4F]+ can be oxidized electrochemically or by the reaction with Ce(SO4)2 to give the corresponding Tc(II) compound [Tc(NO)(NH3)4F]2+. The fluorido ligand in [Tc(NO)(NH3)4F]+ can be replaced by CF3COO-, leaving the "[Tc(NO)(NH3) 4]2+ core" untouched. The experimental results are confirmed by density functional theory calculations on [Tc(NO)F 5]2-, [Tc(NO)(py)4F]+, [Tc(NO)(NH3)4F]+, and [Tc(NO)(NH 3)4F]2+.
