Abstract

Hydrothermal synthesis was exploited to provide three compounds of the VxOy/Cu/imine family. Compound 1, [{Cu2(2, 2′-dpam)4}V4O12] is molecular, while [{Cu2(OH)(o-phen)2}V3O9] (2) and [{Cu2(4,4′-bpy)3(H2O)2}V 4O12]·5H2O (3·5H2O) are one-dimensional and three-dimensional, respectively. The copper-imine components are shown to be critical structural determinants that assume charge-compensating and space-filling roles, as well as providing ligand geometric and steric constrains, as well as flexible metal coordination geometry.
