The reactions of hexachlorocyclotriphosphazatriene, N3P3Cl6, with N2O2-donor type coronands, Ph-2[OR1O][CH2NHR2NHCH2] [R-1 = (CH2)(3), R-2 = (CH2)(3) (1), R-1 = (CH2)(3), R-2 = (CH2)(4) (2), R-1 = (CH2)(4), R-2 = (CH2)(4) (3)], give monotopic spiro-crypta phosphazene architectures, N3P3Cl4{Ph-2 [OR1O][CH2NR2NCH2]} [R-1 = (CH2)(3), R-2 = (CH2)(3) (4), R-1 = (CH2)(3), R-2 = (CH2)(4) (5) and R-1 = (CH2)(4), R-2 = (CH2)(4) (6)], respectively. The reaction of 4 with excess pyrrolidine leads to the formation of geminal N3P3Cl2(C5H5N)(2){Ph-2[O(CH2)(3)O] [CH2N(CH2)(3)NCH2]} (7). The P-31-NMR spectra of 5 and 6 indicate that these compounds have anisochronism. The structures of 5, 6 and 7 were investigated by X-ray crystallography. For 7, the sums of the bond angles around the N atoms were 348.6(2)degrees and 349.7(2)degrees indicating that the N atoms have pyramidal configurations and are stereogenic. The relationship between the chemical shift values delta P ((spiro)) and the Delta(P-N) (electron density transfer parameters) of 4, 5, 6, 7 and the analogous compounds as well as the relationship between the Delta(delta P) values and the above mentioned Delta(P-N) are presented respectively. In addition, the relationship between the endocyclic NPN bond angles of these compounds and the P-31-NMR chemical shifts of the spiro-phosphorus atoms were investigated. The spectroscopic and structural investigations of the compounds were made by elemental analyses, MS, FTIR, one-dimensional H-1-, C-13-, P-31-NMR, DEPT and two-dimensional COSY, HETCOR, HMBC, homo-and heteronuclear correlation techniques.
