Abstract

Hydrothermal synthesis has afforded a family of new coordination polymers incorporating 3,3′-bipyridine (3,3′-bpy), {[M(3,3′-bpy)(H 2O)4](SO4)·2H2O} (M = Co, Ni, Zn). The crystal structures revealed 1-D undulating cationic ribbons of formulation {[M(3,3′-bpy)(H2O)4]}n 2n+ with both unligated charge-balancing sulfate anions and water molecules of crystallization entrapped by hydrogen bonding. The 1-D ribbons run along the (101) crystal direction and further aggregate via extensive hydrogen bonding patterns. Thermal decomposition data were consistent with step-wise loss of water molecules of crystallization and aquo ligands followed by decomposition due to ligand removal.
