Solid-State and Solution Structure of Lanthanide(III) Complexes with a Flexible Py-N6 Macrocyclic Ligand

Cristina Núñez
Abstract Lanthanide complexes of a hexaaza macrocyclic ligand containing a pyridine head unit (L) were synthesized (Ln = La,Lu, except Pm). The solid-state structures of the corresponding La, Ce, Pr, Nd, and Lu complexes were determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography, and they reveal the presence of three different mononuclear complexes with three different conformations of the macrocycle and coordination environments around the metal ions. In all complexes the lanthanide ion is coordinated in an endomacrocyclic manner to the six nitrogen donor atoms of the ligand. In the La, Ce, and Pr complexes the metal ions show a 12-coordinate mononuclear environment in which 3 nitrate anions coordinate in a bidentate fashion. However, in the Nd analogue the metal ion displays a 10-coordinated environment with the coordination of 2 bidentate nitrate groups, whereas Lu shows a 9-coordinate environment interacting with 2 nitrate ligands, one of them acting as bidentate and the second one coordinating in a monodentate fashion. The 1H and 13C NMR spectra of the complexes recorded in CD3CN suggest that the complexes adopt in solution a similar structure to that observed for the Nd complex in the solid state. The [Ln(L)(NO3)3] and [Ln(L)(NO3)2]+ complexes were characterized by density functional theory (DFT) calculations (B3LYP model). The structures obtained from these calculations for La, Ce, Pr, and Nd are in good agreement with the experimental solid-state structures. The relative stabilities of the [Ln(L)(NO3)2]+ complexes with respect to the [Ln(L)(NO3)3] ones (Ln = La, Nd, Gd, Ho, or Lu) were studied both in vacuo and in acetonitrile solution (PCM model) at the same computational level. Our calculations indicate that in solution the [Ln(L)(NO3)2]+ species is the most stable one along the whole lanthanide series, in agreement with the NMR spectroscopic data.(© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

Synthesis and Characterisation of Coordination Polymers of CuII and ZnII with 1,3-Bis(1,2,3,4-tetrazol-2-yl)propane , Rotational Freedom of the Donor Group Favours Structural Diversification

Robert Bronisz
Abstract The novel bidentate ligand 1,3-bis(1,2,3,4-tetrazol-2-yl)propane (pbtz), which possesses a flexible spacer, was synthesised in order to investigate the influence of the flexibility of ligand molecules on the architecture of coordination polymers. For that purpose the reactions between pbtz and M(ClO4)2·6H2O salts (M = CuII and ZnII) were performed. The complexes [{Cu(pbtz)3}(ClO4)2], and [{Zn(pbtz)3}(ClO4)2·2EtOH], were characterised by IR and UV/Vis spectroscopy and their crystal structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction measurements. In both compounds the pbtz ligand molecules act as N4,N4, connectors bridging the central atoms, and the 2-substituted tetrazole rings coordinate in a monodentate fashion to the central atoms forming M(tetrazole)6 cores. [{Cu(pbtz)3}(ClO4)2], was isolated as a 1D coordination polymer. The copper(II) ions are triply bridged by ligand molecules, leading to the formation of infinite 1D chains. A highly unusual manner of bridging, with the tethering of two neighbouring central atoms by the same kind of ligand molecules, although possessing different conformations, is observed. In [{Zn(pbtz)3}(ClO4)2·2EtOH], the six-coordinate zinc(II) ions, which are bridged by single ligand molecules, serve as topological nodes, leading to the formation of a 3D ,-polonium-type network. The crystal structure of the ZnII complex contains only one such net solvated by ethanol molecules. A conformational analysis of the ligand molecules in both compounds demonstrates that the flexibility of the pbtz and the ability of the tetrazole rings in particular to adopt various, relative orientations is responsible for the diversity of the architectures of the obtained complexes.

Two novel silver(I) coordination polymers: poly[(,2 -2-aminopyrimidine-,2N1:N3)bis(,3 -thiocyanato-,3S:S:S)disilver(I)] and poly[(2-amino-4,6-dimethylpyrimidine-,N)(,3 -thiocyanato-,3N:S:S)silver(I)]

Geng-Geng Luo
2-Aminopyrimidine (L1) and 2-amino-4,6-dimethylpyrimidine (L2) have been used to create the two novel title complexes, [Ag2(NCS)2(C4H5N3)]n, (I), and [Ag(NCS)(C6H9N3)]n, (II). The structures of complexes (I) and (II) are mainly directed by the steric properties of the ligands. In (I), the L1 ligand is bisected by a twofold rotation axis running through the amine N atom and opposite C atoms of the pyrimidine ring. The thiocyanate anion adopts the rare ,3 -,3S coordination mode to link three tetrahedrally coordinated AgI ions into a two-dimensional honeycomb-like 63 net. The L1 ligands further extend the two-dimensional sheet to form a three-dimensional framework by bridging AgI ions in adjacent layers. In (II), with three formula units in the asymmetric unit, the L2 ligand bonds to a single AgI ion in a monodentate fashion, while the thiocyanate anions adopt a ,3 -,1N,,2S coordination mode to link the AgL2 subunits to form two-dimensional sheets. These layers are linked by N,H...N hydrogen bonds between the noncoordinated amino H atoms and both thiocyanate and pyrimidine N atoms. [source]

trans -(2-Methyl­thio­benzoato- O)phenylbis­(tri­phenyl­phosphine)­palladium(II), two conformational isomers

Gert J. Kruger
The title compound, trans -[Pd(C6H5)(C8H7O2S)(C18H15P)2], crystallizes in two modifications differing only in the orientation of the 2-methyl­thio­benzoato ligand. In both cases, this ligand binds to the metal centre via one O atom in a monodentate fashion. The only significant difference is a rotation about the C(Ph),COO bond, with O,C,C,C torsion angles having values of 6.3,(7) and 157.3,(3)° in the two isomeric forms. [source]
