Abstract

With iron(II) and ruthenium(II), 4′-(5-pyrimidinyl)-2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine (L) preferentially coordinates through the tpy domain to give octahedral [ML2]2+ (M = Fe, Ru) complexes. Treatment of [RuL2][PF6]2 with CuCl2·2 H2O leads to {[Ru(2)2][CuCl2(OH2)][CuCl3]Cl·3MeCN·7H2O}n which exhibits a two-dimensional coordination network with copper(II) centres interconnecting [RuL2]2+ motifs. Magnetic susceptibility data for the material are consistent with a one-dimensional S = ½ antiferromagnetic chain.
