Abstract:

Various ways in which the nitrate group can bond covalently to a metal atom are discussed. The chemical properties are related to the type of covalent bond involved, and the importance of a crystallographic study of the addition compounds of copper nitrate with nitromethane and dioxan is explained. The preparation and some properties of the new compound basic beryllium nitrate are described. This is believed to be the first compound in which the nitrate group acts as a bridge group between two metal atoms, and its infra-red spectrum is prese ted. A fairly complete survey of the single crystal diffraction patterns has been carried out by the Weissenberg method for the 11 complex between copper nitrate and nitromethane and for basic beryllium nitrate. A preliminary X-ray study of the complex copper nitrate, 1.5 dioxan has also been made. The crystallographic data for these three substances are presented. Author
