The compound, dichloro(2,2,2-trichloroethoxy)vanadium(III) dietherate, has been synthesized; its infrared spectrum, magnetic susceptibility and reflectance data are consistent with an alkoxy-bridged structure having an approximately octahedral geometry for vanadium(III). Its mass spectrum indicates a dimeric structure. It reacts with oxygen and nitrogen donor ligands (L) to yield complexes, VCl2(OCH2- CCl3)·2L, for which the IR spectra, magnetic susceptibility and reflectance spectra suggest a structure similar to the parent compound and the ligands are probably cis. The 1H NMR spectra of some of the compounds confirm the presence of a bridging OCH2CCl3 group.
