While performing our research on the tetranuclear "star-shaped" complexes formulated as [M3M'(LR)2(dpm)6], where M, M' are first-row d-block metals; H3LR is a tripodal alcohol, RC(CH2OH)3, with R = Et, Me or Ph; and Hdpm = dipivaloylmethane, we isolated a series of binuclear, alkoxide-bridged chelate complexes of titanium and chromium upon spontaneous deprotonation of the polyalcohol. In the titanium system, both [TiIII2Cl4(H2LEt)2]·4thf and [TiIV2Cl4(HLEt)2]·2thf were identified; they present analogous binuclear frameworks but distinct metal oxidation states and polyalcohol deprotonation degrees. Four similar CrIII2 compounds were also isolated, differing in the tripodal R groups and cocrystallized solvent or proligand molecules. The products were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and spectroscopic, thermogravimetric and magnetic measurements. Cocrystallization influences the nature, strength and pattern of intermolecular interactions. Among the binuclear MIII products, all those containing solvating tetrahydrofuran, [M2Cl4(H2LR)2]·x thf (R = Et, Ph; x = 4 or 5 respectively), lose solvent upon gradual polyalcohol deprotonation, mild heating or vacuum drying. The versatile tripodal skeleton assembles the alkoxide-bridged M2 units (M = TiIII/IV or CrIII) in various experimental conditions, including air or inert atmosphere and non-protic or protic media, and confers remarkable robustness to the final binuclear aggregates.
