Abstract

Syntheses, crystal structures and interconversion properties of the 1D coordination polymers [Cu2L2(bipy)]n·2nMe2SO (1), [Cu2L2(bipy)]n·3nNH2CHO·nH2O (2), [Cu2L2(bipy)]n·2nNH(Me)CHO (3), [Cu2L2(bipy)]n·2nN(Me)2CHO (4) and [Cu2L2(bipy)]n·2nMeOH (5) (bipy = 4,4′-bipyridine) derived from the acyclic Schiff base o-[(o-hydroxyphenyl)methylideneamino]benzenesulfonic acid (H2L) are described. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses revealed their solvatomorph properties, featuring the formation of 1D polymeric chains with identical hacksaw patterns and adaptable host abilities, containing different guest solvent molecules. No amorphicity was detected upon desolvation of 1–5 and of the previously reported compound [Cu2L2(bipy)]n·nN(Me)2CHO (6), and these coordination polymers undergo reversible interconversion.
