Abstract

A series of linear coordination polymers, metallacycles of cadmium(II) and mercury(II) of flexible carboxylic acid ligands, RCH{3-CH(3)-,5-CH(3)-,6-(-OCH(2)CO(2)H)C(6)H(2)}(2), (when R = C(6)H(5), (H(2)L(1)); 2-NO(2)C(6)H(4)- (H(2)L(2)) and 3-NO(2)C(6)H(4)- (H(2)L(3))) are synthesized and characterized. [CdL(1) (py)(3)](n)·3nH(2)O (py = pyridine) is a linear coordination polymer, whereas [CdL(2)(py)(CH(3)OH)](2)·CH(3)OH is a dinuclear complex of cadmium with a Cd(2)O(2) type of core. The latter is obtained from reaction of cadmium(II) acetate with H(2)L(2) in methanol followed by reaction with pyridine. A similar reaction of cadmium(II) acetate with H(2)L(2) in dimethylformamide results in the formation of a cadmium metallacycle, namely [CdL(2) (py)(2)(H(2)O)](2)·H(2)O. The H(2)L(3) reacted with cadmium(II) acetate in the presence of pyridine to form a metallacycle [CdL(3)(py)(2)(H(2)O)](2)·3H(2)O. The ligand H(2)L(2) form mercury(II) metallacycle [HgL(2)(4-mepy)(2)](2) in the presence of 4-methylpyridine (4-mepy) and the ligand H(2)L(3) forms metallacycle [HgL(3)(3-mepy)(2)](2)·DMF in the presence of 3-methylpyridine (3-mepy). The potassium salts of H(2)L(1) and H(2)L(2) were found to be coordination polymers and these potassium coordination polymers were structurally characterized.
