Abstract: © 2020 The Royal Society of Chemistry. A series of mononuclear gold(iii) complexes of the general formula [AuCl3(diazanaphthalene)], where diazanaphthalene is quinazoline (qz, 1), phthalazine (phtz, 2), 1,5-naphthyridine (1,5-naph, 3), 1,6-naphthyridine (1,6-naph, 4) or 1,8-naphthyridine (1,8-naph, 5), were prepared and fully characterized. The complexes 1-5 consist of discrete monomeric species with the Au(iii) cation in a square planar coordination geometry surrounded by three chloride anions and one diazanaphthalene ligand. Crystallographic studies indicate the presence of an extended 4 + 1 or 4 + 2 geometry around the square planar [AuCl3(diazanaphthalene)] center due to Au⋯Cl and Au⋯N interactions. The crystal structures of these complexes are controlled by a variety of intermolecular interactions that utilize the amphiphilic properties of the coordinated chloride anions and involve C-H groups, π-electrons, and an uncoordinated nitrogen atom of the diazanaphthalene ligand. The usual offset π-stacking between the N-heteroaromatic ligands appears to be completely hindered between the 1,5-naph fragments and significantly weakened between the 1,6-naph and 1,8-naph in their respective complexes 3, 4 and 5, for which the average molecular polarizability (α) values are the lowest in the series. It is remarkable that the [AuCl3(benzodiazine)] complexes 1 and 2 form centrosymmetric crystals, but the [AuCl3(naphthyridine)] complexes 3-5 assemble into non-centrosymmetric aggregates, making them potential alternatives to the previously studied systems for application in various fields by taking advantage of their polarity.
