ABSTRACT: The title compound, (C(12)H(28)N)(2)[Cu(3.194)I(6)(C(5)H(5)N)(2)] was prepared from reaction of copper powder, copper(I) oxide, hydro-iodic acid, tetra-propyl-ammonium iodide and pyridine under hydro-thermal conditions. In the centrosymmetric Cu(4)I(6) (2-) anion, one Cu site is in a trigonal-planar coordination while the second Cu site, which is only partially occupied [site occupancy of 0.5968?(16)], is surroundedby three iodine atoms and one pyridine molecule in a distorted tetrahedral coordination.
Project description:In the centrosymmetric tetra-nuclear title compound, [Cu(4)I(4)(C(10)H(8)N(2)S(2))(2)], there are two different Cu(I) atoms with tetra-hedral coordination geometries. One is chelated by a pyridine N atom and an S-donor from one di-2-pyridyl disulfide ligand and coordinated by two I atoms, while the second Cu(I) atom is coordinated by a pyridine-N and three I atoms. Iodine bridges between the Cu(I) atoms form a tetra-nuclear structure.
Project description:A new thulium(III)-copper(I) heterometallic coordination polymer, [Cu(4)Tm(2)Br(3)(C(6)H(4)NO(2))(6)(OH)(H(2)O)(4)](n), has been prepared by a hydro-thermal method. The Tm and both Cu atoms lie on mirror planes. The Tm atom is seven-coordinate with a capped distorted trigonal-prismatic coordination geometry, while the Cu atoms adopt trigonal CuBrN(2) and tetra-hedral CuBr(3)N coordination modes, respectively. The Cu atom in the trigonal coordination environment is disordered over two sites of equal occupancy. The crystal structure is constructed from two distinct units of dimeric [Tm(2)(?(2)-OH(IN)(6)(H(2)O)(4)] cores (IN = isonicotinate) and one-dimensional inorganic [Cu(4)Br(3)](n) chains, which are linked together, forming heterometallic Cu-halide-lanthanide-organic layers.
Project description:A new lanthanum(III)-copper(I) heterometallic coordination polymer, [Cu(7)La(3)Br(6)(C(6)H(4)NO(2))(8)(C(8)H(4)O(4))(H(2)O)(4)](n), has been prepared by a hydro-thermal method. Of the three La atoms in the asymmetric unit, two are eight-coordinate with bicapped trigonal-prismatic configurations; the third is nine-coordinated and has a tricapped trigonal-prismatic coordination geometry. Of the seven Cu atoms, two are two-coordinate with CuBrN and CuN(2) ligand sets, three have trigonal configurations, viz. CuBrN(2), CuBr(2)N and CuBr(3), while the remaining two adopt distorted tetra-hedral CuBr(3)N geometries. In the crystal structure, adjacent La centers are linked by isonicotinate (IN(-)) and benzene-1,2-dicarboxyl-ate ligands to form a two-dimensional La-carboxyl-ate layer in the ab plane. These layers are further inter-connected with each other by bridging [Cu(IN)(2)] motifs, leading to an unusual three-dimensional heterometallic Cu-halide-lanthanide-organic framework, with the inorganic [Cu(6)Br(6)](n) chains located in the resulting channels. Two Cu atoms are disordered over two positions, both with site occupancy factors of 0.80 and 0.20. O-H?O hydrogen bonding between water molecules and carboxylate O atoms helps to consolidate the crystal packing.
Project description:The title three-dimensional coordination polymer, [Cu(2)Cl(C(6)H(4)N(5))](n), is the product of the hydro-thermal reaction of CuCl(2)·2H(2)O and 5-(4-pyrid-yl)-1H-tetra-zole (4-Hptz). The two independent Cu(I) ions are coordinated in distorted tetra-hedral and distorted trigonal coordination environments. In the unique 5-(4-pyrid-yl)-1H-tetra-zolate ligand, the dihedral angle between the pyridine and tetra-zole rings is 17.3?(2)°.
Project description:The title compound, [CuBr(C(9)H(9)N(5))](n), prepared by the solvothermal treatment of CuBr with 4-(2-allyl-2H-tetra-zol-5-yl)pyridine, is a new homometallic Cu(I)-olefin coordination polymer in which dinuclear Cu(2)Br(2) units are linked by the organic olefin ligand 4-(2-allyl-2H-tetra-zol-5-yl)pyridine, which acts as a bidentate ligand connecting two neighbouring Cu(2)Br(2) units through the pyridine N atom and the double bond of the allyl group. The coordination of Cu(I) is slightly distorted tetrahedral.
Project description:The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Cu(2)Tb(C(7)H(3)NO(4))(3)(C(12)H(8)N(2))(4)]NO(3)·4H(2)O, consists of one-half of the C(2)-symmetric trinuclear coordination cation, one-half of the C(2)-symmetric nitrate anion and two water mol-ecules. In the coordination cation, the Cu(II) atom is coordinated by four N atoms from two 1,10-phenanthroline ligands and two O atoms from a bridging-chelating carboxyl-ate group of the pyridine-2,6-dicarboxyl-ate anion, completing a distorted N(4)O(2) octa-hedral coordination environment. The Tb(III) atom, located on a twofold rotation axis, is nine-coordinated by three tridentate pyridine-2,6-dicarboxyl-ate anions forming an N(3)O(6) donor set. The intra-molecular Cu?Tb distance of 5.0592?(11)?Å indicates weak inter-actions between the Cu(II) and Tb(III) atoms. The coordination cations, nitrate anions and water mol-ecules are connected via O-H?O hydrogen bonds into layers parallel to the (001) plane. Moreover, there are extensive ?-? stacking inter-actions [centroid-centroid distances = 4.332?(7) and 3.878?(5)?Å] between the phenanthroline ligands and between phenanthroline and pyridine-2,6-dicarboxyl-ate ligands.
Project description:In the title complex, [Cu(2)(CN)(2)(C(6)H(7)N)](n), there are two copper atoms with different coordination environments. One Cu atom (Cu1) is linked to the two cyanide ligands, one N atom from a pyridine ring while the other (Cu2) is coordinated by the two cyanide ligands in a slightly distorted tetra-hedral geometry and linked to Cu1, forming a triangular coordination environment. The Cu atoms are bridged by bidentate cyanide ligands, forming an infinite Cu-CN chain. One cyanide ligand is equally disordered over two sets of sites, exchanging C and N atoms coordinated to both metal atoms. However, one cyanide group is not disordered and it coordinates to Cu1 via the N atom whereas its C-atom counterpart coordinates Cu2. The 3-methyl-pyridine (3MP) ligand coordinates through the N atom to Cu1 as a terminal ligand, which originates from decyanation of 3-pyridyl-acetonitrile under hydro-thermal conditions. Adjacent Cu-CN chains are inter-connected through Cu?Cu inter-actions [2.8364?(10)?Å], forming a three-dimensional framework.
Project description:The title tetra-nuclear complex, [Cu(4)Cl(6)O(C(13)H(11)N(3))(4)], features a tetra-hedral arrangement of copper(II) ions bonded to the central O atom (site symmetry [Formula: see text]). Each of the six edges of the Cu(4) tetra-hedron is bridged by a chloride ion (one of which has site symmetry 2), so that each copper ion is linked to the other three metal ions through the central O atom and through three separate chloride-ion bridges. The fifth coord-ination position, located on the central Cu-O axis on the outside of the cluster, is occupied by an N atom of the mono-dentate 1-(pyridin-2-ylmeth-yl)-1H-benzimidazole ligand. The resulting coordination geometry of the metal ion is a distorted trigonal bipyramid with the O and N atoms in the axial positions. The dihedral angle between the benzimidazole ring system and the pendant pyridine ring is 61.0?(2)°.
Project description:The title polymer, [Cu(2)Cl(2)(C(9)H(9)N(5))(2)](n), has been prepared by the solvothermal treatment of CuCl with 4-(2-allyl-2H-tetra-zol-5-yl)pyridine. The crystal structure shows that the title compound is a homometallic Cu(I)-olefin coordination polymer, in which the Cu(2)Cl(2) nodes are bridged by two olefin ligands. The asymmetric unit contains one-half of the monomer, the complete monomer having twofold rotation symmetry. The coordination environment of Cu(I) is slightly distorted tetra-hedral, with coordination sites being two ?(2)-Cl atoms, one pyridine N atom of an organic ligand and one allylic double bond of a symmetry-related ligand. Each organic mol-ecule behaves as a bidentate ligand, connecting two neighboring Cu(2)Cl(2) dimers in the polymeric chain, which runs along .
Project description:In the title complex, [Cu(BF4)2(C5H5N)2], the Cu(II) ion is in an octa-hedral coordination environment and is surrounded by four pyridine and two tetra-fluoridoborate mol-ecules. The four pyridine mol-ecules are coordinated to the copper ion through their N atoms in the equatorial plane and display a right-handed screw arrangement around the Cu(II) ion. The remaining two trans positions in the octa-hedron are occupied by the BF4 (-) anions, each coordinating weakly through an F atom. The crystal packing shows a two-dimensional sheet structure parallel to the ab plane that is formed by C-H?F hydrogen-bonding inter-actions.
