The 1:1 reactions of FeCl2 . 4H(2)O and FeCl3 with the biheteroaromatic ligand 2-(2'-pyridyl)quinoxaline (L) were studied in methanol. The new complexes [Fe2Cl4L2] (1) and [Fe2Cl4L2]Cl-2 (2) were isolated and characterized by elemental analyses, conductivity measurements, magnetic susceptibilities at room temperature and spectroscopic (IR, far-IR, ligand field, Fe-57 Mossbauer) techniques. The X-ray crystal structure of 1 consists of two Fe-II centres bridged by two chloro ligands, with a terminal chloride and a chelating molecule of L completing five-coordination at each metal. The geometry at iron is distorted trigonal bipyramidal with the bridging chlorides occupying apical and equatorial sites of each Fe-II atom. A five-coordinate dinuclear structure is also assigned for the cation of complex 2. All data are discussed in terms of the nature of bonding and known or assigned structures.
