Abstract

An aqueous solution containing ferric chloride, acetic acid and 2-hydroxypyridine results in the solid-state isolation of an unusual mixed-ligand trinuclear iron(III) complex [Fe33-O)(μ2-CH3COO)6(C5H5NO)2(H2O)]ClO4·4H2O, 1, where the iron-coordinated water ligand forms a hydrogen-bonded water tetramer with three other solvent water molecules; the Fe3 clusters aggregate to {Fe3}nvia N–H⋯O type hydrogen bonds, forming a zig-zag chainlike structure.
