Abstract

A low-coordinate aryloxo erbium complex, [(ArO)3Er(THF)](MePh), has been synthesized by the reaction of anhydrous ErCl3 with three equivalents of NaOAr in tetrahydrofuran. The central erbium atom is coordinated by three oxygen atoms of the aryloxo ligands and one oxygen atom of the tetrahydrofuran molecule, resulting in a distorted tetrahedron.
