Abstract

A chirally helical coordination polymer [Ni4(H2O)7L4·H2O]n (H2222L = 2-(pyridin-2-yl)-1H-imidazole-4,5-dicarboxylic acid) constructed from a Ni4L4 building block exhibits spontaneous chiral resolution and the enantiomers of 1M and 1P have been confirmed by single-crystal analysis and solid-state circular dichroism spectra. The magnetic properties of compound 1 are also discussed.
