Metal-organic co-ordination frameworks based on mixed N- and O-donor ligands: crystal structures of [Co(phth)2(bipy)] and [Co2(mal)2(bipy)(H2O)2] (phth = phthalate, mal = malonate, bipy=4,4 '-bipyridine)

Abstract

Two new metal-organic co-ordination frameworks have been prepared hydrothermally in mixed ligand systems and their crystal structures determined: [Co(phth)(2)(bipy)] is composed of a complex three-dimensional framework consisting of interlinked Co-phth-Co and Co-bipy-Co chains; [Co-2(mal)(2)(bipy)(H2O)(2)] is also three-dimensional, being composed of Co-mal sheets which are pillared by bidentate bipy molecules (phth = phthalate, mal = malonate, bipy = 4,4'-bipyridine). Both frameworks enclose small void channels.
