Abstract

The hydrothermal reaction of CoF2 and 4,4′,4″,4″'-(porphine-5,10,15,20-tetrayl)tetrakis(benzoic acid) (H6tcpor) provides a mixture of crystalline products, including H2porph, [Co(porph)] (H2porph = C20H14N4), and [Co(H2O)3{Co(H3tcpor)}2{Co(H4tcpor)}]·4H2O (1·4H2O). Due to the small size, weak diffraction and intergrowth nature of the crystals, the identities of the products were determined using synchrotron single crystal X-ray diffraction. The title compound 1·4H2O is a tetranuclear cluster of Co(II) sites. Two {Co(H3tcpor)}1 - and one {Co(H4tcpor)} subunits radiate from the central {Co(H2O)3}2 + moiety of the cluster. Hydrogen bonding stabilizes the central {Co(H2O)3(O2C-)2(HO2C-)} core as well as providing extensive three dimensional connectivity between the cluster units.
