In this paper we report on the simultaneous synthesis of cis and trans complexes of the type: [crF2 (diamine)2]+] (diamine - ethylenediamine(en) and 1,2-propanediamine(pn)# The cis species are considerably more soluble than the trans. As a consequence, the last one is easily removed from the reaction mixture. We suggest a cis-complex formation from a trans → cis isomerization. This increases as the reaction time increases. © 1983, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
