Alkoxido-bridged binuclear copper(II) complexes derived from aminoalcohols - useful building-blocks in designing coordination polymers with a rich structural variety

Abstract

The reactions of copper(II) salts with aminoalcohols affords frequently alkoxido-bridged dimers. These are robust species which act as nodes in designing 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D coordination polymers. Neutral (e. g. bis(4-pyridyl) derivatives) or anionic divergent ligands (e. g. polycarboxylato anions, polycyanido-metallates) are employed as spacers. In this paper, a rich variety of structures is reviewed, emphasizing the role played by the denticity of the aminoalcohols and of the linkers, as well as by the accompanying anions on the network topology. The convolution of coordinative and non-covalent bonds ( stacking, argentoplicic/aurophilic, ∙∙∙Hg interactions, hydrogen bonds) in sustaining the solid-state architectures is also discussed.
