Abstract

Upon combining the bis-amidinium dication 1-2H+ with thiocyanatometallate M(SCN)42 (M = Pd, Hg) or isothiocyanatometallate Cu(NCS)42 anions (behaving as H-bond donor and acceptors, respectively) three new hybrid molecular networks have been obtained in the crystalline phase and structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction on single crystals. Whereas for the combination of tecton 1-2H+ and both Pd(SCN)42 and Hg(SCN)42 anions analogous 1-D H-bonded networks were observed, for the Cu(NCS)42− anion a 2-D network was obtained. Based on structural features of both components, the formation of the two types of networks is discussed.
