Building Coordination Polymers Using Dipyridone Ligands


By examining the crystal structures of the self-assembly of 1H,1'H-[3,3']Bipyridinyl-6,6'-dione 1 as well as its coordination with Co(II) to form novel CP-671, our study demonstrates the tendency of dipyridones to generate predictable patterns by hydrogen bonds depending on the crystallization conditions and the potential of pyridone ligating groups to design novel Coordination Polymers with structural diversity. The two structures of 1 elucidated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction show cyclic dimer and zigzag chain to generate fascinating hydrogen bonds frameworks. A two-dimensional coordination polymer structure (CP-671) is obtained by the linkage of 1 with cobalt cation according to know coordination mode of 2-pyridone ligating group.
