Abstract

A novel proton transfer compound (OHRNH3)22+(MoO4)2- (R = 2-methyl-1-propyl), derived from 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol and MoO2(acac)2, synthesized and characterized by 1H NMR, X-ray diffraction analysis, UV-Vis and FT-IR spectroscopy. The single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that intra- and intermolecular proton transfer from (MoO4H2) to (OHRNH2) results in the formation of a new molybdate salt that its fragments are connected through H-bonding and ion-pairing as shown in the X-ray crystal structure. This salt crystallizes in the space group P21/n P_1 of the monoclinic system, with four molecules per unit cell. The unit cell parameters are a = 13.6091(11) Å, b = 6.1049(5) Å, c = 17.0840(13) Å and β = 97.745(4)°.
