Single-crystal to single-crystal guest exchange and phase transformations in a porous metallocycle

Author affiliations

Abstract

Single crystals of a previously reported porous metallocycle [Ag2L2](BF4)2·2CH3CN (1), where L is the ligand 1,4-bis(2-methylimidazol-1-ylmethyl)benzene, were grown from acetonitrile and immersed in different organic solvents. The crystals thus treated were subjected to single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, which revealed that the acetonitrile guest molecules had been replaced by the solvent that the compound was exposed to, yielding five different solvates: [Ag2L2](BF4)2·2(CH3)2CO (2), [Ag2L2](BF4)2·2CHCl3 (3), [Ag2L2](BF4)2·C6H6 (4), [Ag2L2](BF4)2·C6H4F2 (5), [Ag2L2](BF4)2·C7H8 (6). Thermogravimetric analysis supports these findings.
