Good Morning to all,
I would like to make an iron / cobalt bis salen for an organic catalyst.
I have made the ligand : which is an organic molecule with two discrete salen units.
Now the problem is the following : how can I put one Co(2+) and one Fe(2+) =Salen1(Co)-Salen2(Fe)?
Since I have try, when I add 1 equivalents of Co(OAc)2.4H2O I have half of a a precipitate (in chloroform) of Salen1(Co)-Salen2(Co) and half of free ligand
Thank you for your precious *delete me*
