General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.
Cobalt(II) oxo pivalate is a dinuclear complex that is typically formed by the direct reaction of cobalt carbonate with pivalic acid, followed by crystallization from MeCN. Its structure has two Co(II) sites bridged by two 2,11-carboxylates (Harris notation) and an oxygen atom.


Synthesis of trinuclear complex [Co3(Piv)2L12L22] by reacting cobalt(II)pivalate with spin labeled Schiff base has been reported in a study.

A simple two-component procedure was developed to synthesize not only classical zinc-based IRMOFs represented by MOF-5 but also the cobalt and beryllium homologues of this most prominent MOF. The procedure is the first manifestation of mirroring the IRMOF series with...
