Low-dimensional framework constructed by silver(I) trifluoromethylsulfonate with 1,5-bis(benzimidazol-2-yl)-3-oxapentane or 1,6-bis(benzimidazol-2-yl)-2,5-dioxahexane

ABSTRACT The ligands 1,6-bis(benzimidazol-2-yl)-2,5-dioxahexane (DEBIm) and 1,5-bis(benzimidazol-2-yl)-3-oxapentane (OEBIm) reacted with silver(I) trifluoromethylsulfonate producing [Ag(DEBIm)](CF3SO3) (1) and [Ag(OEBIm)](CF3SO3) (2), respectively. The cation [Ag(L)]+(L=OEBIm or DEBIm) in both complexes is bent in semi-enclosed form due to the presence of oxygen in the ligands which forms either coordination bond or weak non-bonding interaction with the Ag(I) ion. Crystallographic analyses showed that [Ag(DEBIm)]+ (in 1) and [Ag(OEBIm)]+ (in 2) are assembled differently by the anion CF3SO3− via hydrogen bond N(C)H⋯O to give 1-D chain and via NH⋯O and CH⋯F to give 2-D network, respectively. The complexes were also identified by IR and 1H NMR spectroscopy.

    ABSTRACT: a] Ruirui Yun, [a] Kaitong Wang, [a] Ke Li, [a] Xingcai Huang, [a] Tao Sun, [a] and Yaoyu Wang [b] Abstract. A novel complex {Cu(Bobb) 2 ](pic) 2 } 2 [pic = picrate anion, Bobb = 1,3-bis(1-benzylbenzimidazol-2-yl)-2-oxopropane] was syn-thesized and characterized by means of elemental analyses and electri-cal conductivity. The crystal structure of the copper complex has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. A study of the electro-chemistry of the title compound was carried out by using cyclic vol-tammetry. It revealed that the copper complex exhibits a quasi-reversi-ble redox process. The X-ray structure of the above complex shows

    ABSTRACT: Several 0D, 1D, and 3D metal–organic hybrid frameworks of ZnII have been synthesized by using the asymmetric ligand 6-(1H-benzoimidazol-2-yl)pyridinecarboxylic acid (HL) with control of the temperature and solvent in a solvothermal synthesis technique. In DMF, the structure at room temperature confirms that the resulting compound Zn(L)2·2(H2O) (1) is the 0D mononuclear structure, above 80 °C, C–N bond cleavage of partial DMF molecules induces the formation of the 1D chain-like compound {[Zn(L)(HCOO)]·2(H2O)}n (2), but on warming up to 120 and 160 °C, due to the decomposition of a large number of DMF molecules, the same reaction, respectively, gives two 3D metal–organic coordination polymers with 3D channels reported previously {[Zn(HCOO)3]−·[H2N(CH3)2]+}n (3) and [Zn(HCOO)2]n (4), in which the 3D channels of 3 contain guest [H2N(CH3)2]+ motifs, while at high temperature the 3D channels of 4 are an open stable system without any guest molecules. Replacing DMF in the above reaction by ethanol or acetonitrile, only 0D compound 1 is obtained in the range from room temperature to 160 °C. However, the same reaction in DMSO provides a 1D wave-like compound {[Zn(L)(DMSO)]·(ClO4)·H2O}n (5), in which the solventDMSO molecule coordinates to the central metal ZnII ion. Furthermore, in three new complexes 1, 2 and 5, through ππ stacking and hydrogen bonding interactions, 3D supramolecular networks are assembled. It is worth noting that the existence of the twelve-membered cyclic water–perchlorate dimers [(ClO4)(H2O)]22− with chair-conformation in the solid state of 5 not only increases the stability of the supramolecular structure, but also results in a stronger fluorescence signal compared with ligand HL, 1 and 2.
