Abstract
A combined electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and density functional theory (DFT) investigation of the N,N-bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)-1,2-cyclohexane-diamino cobalt(II) complex was undertaken. This complex displays remarkable selectivity for the hydrolytic kinetic resolution of epoxides after activation with a suitable acid. The EPR data show that the complex possesses a |yz,2A2 ground state. The nitrogen and proton hyperfine, and nitrogen nuclear-quadrupole values, obtained from HYSCORE experiments, could be interpreted using complementary DFT results. Addition of acetic acid to the cobalt(II) complex under a N2 atmosphere, resulted in the formation of new high-spin and low-spin Co(II) species, the latter possessing a |z2,2A1 ground state.
