ABSTRACT The syntheses, crystal structures and magnetic properties are described for two novel 2D heterometallic Cu(II)-Sr(II) coordination polymers {Sr(H(2)O)(6)[(Im)(4)Cu(4)(pdc)(4)Sr(H(2)O)(4)]·6H(2)O}(n) (1) and [Cu(2)(H(2)O)(2)(pdc)(2)Sr(H(2)O)(3)](n) (2) (H(3)pdc = 3,5-pyrazoledicarboxylic acid; Im = imidazole). The 1 : 1 : 1 : 5 reaction of SrCl(2)·6H(2)O, Cu(NO(3))(2)·3H(2)O, H(3)pdc and imidazole in H(2)O-EtOH at 120 °C under autogenous pressure gave 1. Complex 2 was obtained from the 1 : 1 : 1 H(3)pdc/Sr(OH)(2)·8H(2)O/Cu(NO(3))(2)·3H(2)O reaction mixture in H(2)O-EtOH under solvothermal conditions. Complex 1 can be described as a 2D grid-shaped network with the four Cu(II) ions in a saddle-like conformation. In complex 2, Sr(II) ions link metalloligands [Cu(2)(pdc)(2)(H(2)O)(2)](2-) to generate a 2D layer framework. Variable-temperature solid-state dc magnetic susceptibility studies have been performed in the temperature range 2.0-300 K for complexes 1 and 2. Antiferromagnetic Cu(II)···Cu(II) exchange interactions were found for both 1 and 2.

    ABSTRACT: Nine new mononuclear and polynuclear Cu(ii) complexes [Cu(H2L(2))Cl]Cl·3H2O (), [Cu(H2L(3))Cl]Cl·H2O (), [Cu(H2L(4))Cl]Cl·2.5H2O (), [Cu3(μ(3)-L(1))2(H2O)3](ClO4)2·H2O (), [Cu4(μ-HL(1))4](ClO4)8·CH3OH·5H2O (), [Cu2(HL(3))2](ClO4)2·2H2O (), [Cu2(μ-HL(3))2](ClO4)2·H2O (), [Cu2(μ-HL(3))(L(3))Cu(teta)](ClO4)3·2H2O () and [Cu2(H2L(3))2(ox)](ClO4)2·2H2O·2MeOH () containing [5-(2-pyridine-2-yl)-1,2,4-triazole-3-yl]alkanes (H2L(n), n = 1-4) in combination with other ligands, such as chlorido, aqua, triethylenetetramine (teta) and/or oxalato (ox(2-)), were synthesized and characterized by various techniques such as elemental analysis, FTIR, NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopy. X-ray structures of H2L(3) and H2L(4) as well as complexes were determined. The X-ray structures revealed that relatively small composition and structural changes in the H2L(n) ligands have a substantial impact on the coordination geometries of the complexes themselves as well as on their resulting magnetic properties. It has been found that the geometries of the complexes vary from square-pyramidal to trigonal-bipyramidal (with τ ranging from 0.00 to 0.96) and, moreover, that the trigonal bipyramidal geometry becomes more preferable with the increase in the length of the polymethylene chain within the corresponding H2L(n) ligand. The magnetic properties of the polynuclear compounds , , , and were analysed using the spin Hamiltonian formalism, which revealed the presence of antiferromagnetic exchange in the polynuclear systems mediated by the title ligands. The significant effect of the geometric parameters on the CuCu exchange interactions in the polynuclear complexes is discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Eight novel Sr(II)-Ln(III) heteronuclear coordination polymers based on pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid (H2pda) and imidazole (im) ligands, namely, [LnSr(pda)3(H2O)5]·Him·H2O (Ln = Eu (), Gd (), Tb ()), [Ln2Sr(pda)6(H2O)5]·4Him·C2H5OH·nH2O (Ln = Eu (), n = 5; Gd (), n = 4), [LnSr(pda)3(H2O)4]·Him·3H2O (Ln = Gd (), Tb ()), and [GdSr(pda)3(H2O)5]·Him·C2H5OH·3H2O (), have been prepared by employing different amounts of imidazole. X-ray crystal structure analysis reveals that these compounds exhibit a rich structural chemistry. Complexes possess 2-D frameworks. Complexes , , and exhibit three types of 1-D chain structure. The structures of the complexes could be rationally tuned via adding different amounts of imidazole. The luminescent properties of these complexes have been investigated. The results show that Eu(III) and Tb(III) complexes exhibit intense red and green luminescence emission which are characteristics of Tb(III) and Eu(III), respectively. Solid-state quantum yield and the lifetime of these complexes are also reported.
