The new complex, cis-beta-[Cr(2,2,3-tet)(N-3)(2)]Br (2,2,3-tet = 1,4,7,11-tetraazaundecane), was prepared and its structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The chromium(III) atom is in a distorted octahedral environment coordinated by four nitrogen atoms of 2,2,3-tet and two azido ligands in a cis-beta arrangement, with bent Cr-N-3 linkages at the coordinating azide nitrogen atoms. The mean Cr-N(2,2,3-tet) and Cr-N(azide) bond lengths are 2.084(5) and 2.021(5) angstrom, respectively. The crystal structure is stabilized by ionic interactions, supported by N-H center dot center dot center dot N(azide) and N-H center dot center dot center dot Br hydrogen bonds. The IR and electronic spectroscopic properties are also discussed.
