An unusual (CuSCN)∞ structural motif in the non-centrosymmetric coordination polymer [(CuSCN)2(pyrimidine)]∞
The coordination network [(CuSCN)2(pym)]? (pym = pyrimidine) has been prepared and characterised by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies, revealing a new three-dimensional (CuSCN)? structural motif. The pyrimidine ligands are arranged such that the resultant coordination network is non-centrosymmetric.
