Abstract

The synthesis and in-depth characterisation including X-ray crystallography of a new hydroxy derivative of bis(2-pyridylcarbonyl)amine Hbpca, namely N-(3-hydroxypicolinoyl)picolinamide (Hbpca-OH), as well as two ferrocenyl derivatives of Hbpca-OH, namely 2-(picolinoylcarbamoyl)pyridin-3-yl ferrocenoate (HL1) and bis(2-(picolinoylcarbamoyl)pyridin-3-yl) 1,1′-ferrocenoate (H2L2), is reported. HL1 and H2L2 were complexed with five different transition metal cations, namely Fe2+, Zn2+, Ni2+, Cu2+ and Cu+, to give ten complexes with varying stoichiometries, which were characterised by different analytical methods including 1H NMR, ESI-MS, IR spectroscopy and microanalysis. The metal complexation was also confirmed by electrochemical measurements for all complexes except Zn(L1)2 and FeL2, for which the changes in formal redox potentials of ferrocene ΔE°′ observed were not significant enough. Furthermore, two X-ray structures of CuII complexes, namely [Cu2I2L12] and [Cu2I2L2]n, were determined. Both structures contain an extremely rare CuII–I2–CuII bridge. Finally, a small antiferromagnetic coupling in [Cu2I2L2]n was observed.
