Abstract

The reaction of L1H {L1H = 3-(N9-guaninyl)propionic acid} with Me3SnCl or (n-Bu3Sn)2O afforded the 1D coordination polymers, [Me3Sn(L1)]n (1) and [n-Bu3Sn(L1)]n (2) respectively. A reaction between L2H {L2H = 3-(N7-guaninyl)propionic acid} with Me3SnCl also afforded a 1D coordination polymer, [Me3Sn(L2)]n (3). A similar reaction between L3H [uracil-6-carboxylic acid] with (Ph3Sn)2O in a 2 : 1 ratio afforded a dimer [(n-Bu3SnL3)2·H2O] (4). A mononuclear compound [Me3Sn(L4)·H2O] (5) was obtained in a 1 : 1 reaction of 3-{N9-(2-aminopurinyl)}propanoic acid (L4H) with Me3SnCl. Complexes 1–5 show rich supramolecular structures in the solid state as a result of several intermolecular interactions. Thus, in the one-dimensional coordination polymer 3, triple hydrogen bonding (G[triple bond, length as m-dash]G), between inter-chain guanine units has been observed. Similarly a homo orotatequartet has been observed in 4 as a result of intermolecular interactions.
