Quadruply bonded chromium (II) acetate coordinated with axial ligands was synthesized in gram scale by ligand vapor diffusion, where vaporphase ligands diffuse onto the surface of anhydrous chromium (II) acetate crystals without dissolution. The product was obtained in gram scale with nearly 100 % yield, with the size of each crystal being comparable to previous reports. Powder X-ray diffraction studies confirmed the high purity of the product. The reaction mechanism was scrutinized by changing the amount of ligand inside the reaction vessel and the reaction time. As a new, simple route for ligand coordination by simple diffusion of vapor, this new method would contribute to fundamental studies and application of various complexes and materials with desired ligand coordination.
