Stabilization of interpenetrating cluster-based frameworks promoted by N-H…X hydrogen bonds: synthesis, structures and properties of {[Cd(NH3)4]3[Re3Mo3Se8(CN)6]}X (X = Cl, Br and I)

Abstract

Control of the covalent coordination polymer structures using non-covalent interactions is a promising way for obtaining the functional materials by a self-assembly in solution. Here we report the crucial role of the halide anions in formation of the interpenetrating frameworks based on the cluster cyanometalate. It was found that interaction of [Re3Mo3Se8(CN)6]5- cluster anions and Cd2+ cations in aqueous ammonia lead to formation of the 1D polymeric compound {[Cd(NH3)5]2[Cd(NH3)4]3[Re3Mo3Se8(CN)6]2}·5H2O (1). The compound 1 is unstable outside the mother liquor due to the rapid loss of the NH3 and H2O molecules. Addition of the KX (X = Cl, Br, I) to the reaction mixture led to selective formation of the 3D framework compounds {[Cd(NH3)4]3[Re3Mo3Se8(CN)6]}X (2-4 for X = Cl, Br, I, respectively) stabilized by the N-H…X hydrogen bonding. Compounds 2-4 demonstrate high thermal stability as well as the ability to reversible loss of ammonia and reversible oxidation in the solid state.
