Abstract:

Metathesis between sodium p-toluate and ceric ammonium nitrate yields benzene-soluble basic ceric toluates. The basic ceric toluates CeTol OHO and CeTol1.5OH1.5O0.5, demonstrably low in toluic acid, have been isolated. Both react with disalicylalpropylenediamine H2DSPD to form water, toluic acid, and bisN,Ndisalicylalpropylenediamine cerium IV, CeDSPD2. Ceric isopropoxide solvate is dimeric and infinitely soluble in benzene. The isopropoxide reacts with toluic acid to give isopropyl alcohol and ceric toluate which is sparingly soluble in benzene. Reactions of either the isopropoxide or normal soap with excess H2DSPD afford an anhydrous route to CeDSPD2. The DSPD complexes of both CeIV and FeIII are effective catalysts for luminescence in the perioxide oxidation of luminol. Author
