Introduction</p><p>Hydrogen peroxide readily associates with transition metalssuch as Mo(VI), V(V), Nb(V) andW(VI), forming a number of peroxocomplexes whose nature depends on the pH and relative concen-tration of the reagents [1]. In the last decades, peroxo species ofearly transition metals (i.e. Mo, W, V, Nb) have attracted consider-able attention because of their extended coordination chemistry[2]. Transition metal complexes have an important role in indus-trial, pharmaceutical and biological processes [36]. They have</p><p>terization of peroxo niobate and tungstate complexes wasreported.

Hydrogen peroxide(30%) obtained from Merck was used as received and de-ionizedand distilled water was used throughout this study. Deuteratedsolvents for use in the NMR, D2O, and DCl were purchased fromMerck. IR spectra were recorded using a KBr pellet on a Perkin El-mer 880 IR spectrophotometer.

Data collection (x-scans) and processing (cell renement, data reduction, Numericaland Empirical absorption correction) were performed using theCRYSTALCLEAR program package [19]. The structure was solved by di-rect methods using SHELXS-97 [20] and rened by full-matrix least-squares techniques on F2 with SHELXL-97 [21].

The two peroxo groups and the oxygen O(7)of the ligand lie in the equatorial plane. Similar structural data forperoxo complexes of tungsten W(VI) are reported in a more recentreview published in 2008 by Sergienko [18]. The complex com-pound has a similar structure with the heteroleptic tungsten com-plex with the quinaldinic ligand reported in our work as it can beseen by the bond angles [9].

Raczynska et al. reported the rich-ness of intermolecular interactions in guanidinium salts. These arehydrogen bonds, Coulomb and Van der Waals interactions. In par-ticular, the highly symmetric and planar guanidinium ion with sixequivalent protons, is a hydrogen bond donor. Since the H-bonddonor and acceptor are charged species, the electrostatic interac-tions in the crystal lattice may additionally modify the hydrogenbond network [15]. The selected hydrogen bond lengths are re-ported in Table 3.</p><p>3.2. Infrared and Raman data</p><p>The infrared spectrum of the complex revealed the characteris-tic spectral pattern main vibrations of which are summarized inTable 4. The spectrum of the complex illustrated in Fig. 3 exhibitsa strong sharp band at 929 cm1 consistent with the presence ofthe W@O bond vibration Two strong and sharp bands packing at869 and 828 cm1 are ascribed to the OO vibration [14]. Theoccurrence of two bands indicates the presence of different peroxogroups side-on bound to the metal. Additional bands in the rangeof 690540 cm1 belong to mas(WO2) and ms(WO2) [10]. Thebands at 1551 and 1363 are assigned to the methyl group bendingmotion, and the band at 1227 corresponds to the CO stretch [16].The peaks at 3417 and 3182 cm1 are attributed to the asymmetricvas(NH2) and symmetric vs(NH2)vibrations. Drozd et al. in a theo-retical vibrational spectra study of guanidine selenate (GUSE) andguanidinium sulphate (GUS), reported that the bands at 35743511 cm1 and at 35753502 cm1 are assigned in mas(NH2)vibra-tions in (GUS) and (GUSE), respectively, and the symmetric vibra-tions ms(NH2) at 3103 and 3315 for (GUS) and (GUSE).

The angle between them(O5WO7) is 88.7(15) which is close to the angle between the oxoatom the tungsten ion and the oxygen of the quinolinium ring ofthe quinaldinic tungsten complex [9].

These data are also in accordance with those re-ported in our previews work except that the lengths of the OO(1.509(7)1.505(7)) bonds are noticeably longer comparing to thequinaldinic complex reported previously [9].

Raman in solution</p><p>The Raman spectra of the complex in aqueous solution both inabsence and presence of hydrogen peroxide at different pH values,is extremely useful for the identication of the different peroxospecies formed and the data are summarized in Table 5. In orderto obtain valuable conclusions a strictly specic procedure was fol-lowed. Firstly, a spectrum, obtained 20 min after the dissolution ofthe complex in water, exhibits two main bands at 1013 and932 cm1 corresponding to the CN and W@O vibrations,respectively.</p><p>After the addition of an appropriate quantity of H2O2, capable toprepare a solution with an excess of H2O2, a second spectrum ob-tained which is depicted in Fig. 5. In that spectrum the appearanceof four new bands at 876 main, 858 shoulders, 795 broad band, and573 cm1, not present before indicates the interaction of H2O2 withthe complex compound. The band at 876 corresponds to the OOvibration of the free H2O2 and the two bands at 858 and795 cm1 to the coordinated H2O2. The band at 573 cm1 is attrib-uted to the WOC vibration [16]. Another interesting differencebetween the two spectra is the absence of the band at 932 cm1</p><p>in the second spectrum. All the peaks mentioned above exceptfor the peak at 573 cm1 appeared in the solid state. The abovendings are in accordance with those reported in our work withperoxo tungsten complexes [9]. The disappearance of the band at932 cm1 indicates the absence of theW@O bond to the compoundin the presence of an excess of H2O2. Under these conditions a tri-peroxo form of the complex is dominant.
