dc.description.abstract The coordination chemistry of antimony(III) and antimony(V) have been investigated to reveal fundamental structural and electronic features. The limited scope of known cationic antimony(V) complexes was greatly expanded, including the first examples of pnictogen(V) trications. The systematic nature of these investigations led to the observation of redox chemistry, determined to be the result of reductive elimination of chlorobenzene and biphenyl from an antimony center. The reactivity of [Ph2Sb(OPyrMe)4][OTf]3 was investigated and it was found that the OPyrMe ligands are sufficiently labile to perform ligand substitution chemistry. However, when exposed to phosphines, ligand-centered reactivity prevails and phosphonium salts of the form [R3P(2-4-methylpyridine)][OTf] which may be useful reagents in the field of medicinal chemistry and drug design. While attempts were made to synthesise antimony(V) tetra- and penta- cations have been unsuccessful, the methodologies reported here will serve as a foundation to future endeavors. en_US
