Cd(II) coordination polymers constructed from bis(pyridyl) ligand with asymmetric spacer in chelating mode and diverse organic dicarboxylates: syntheses, structural evolutions and properties

Abstract

Self-assembly of diverse Cd(II) metal salts, four organic dicarboxylic acids, as well as two flexible bis(pyridyl) ligand leads to the formation of thirteen complexes, namely, [Cd(L1)(C4H4O4)]n (1), [Cd(L2)(C4H4O4)0.5]n·nOH·8nH2O (2), [Cd(L1)(C4H2O4)]n (3), [Cd(L1)(C4H2O4)]n (4), [Cd2(L2)(C4H2O4)2(H2O)2]n·nH2O (5), [Cd2(L1)(m-BDC)2(H2O)2]n (6), [Cd2(L2)(m-BDC)2(H2O)2]n (7), [Cd3(L1)2(p-BDC)3(H2O)4]n·2nH2O (8), [Cd(L2)(p-BDC)0.5Cl]n (9), [Cd(L2)(p-BDC)0.5(H2O)]n·n(ClO4)·nH2O (10), [Cd3(L2)2(p-BDC)(SO4)2(H2O)6]n·4nH2O (11), [Cd(L2)(p-BDC)]n·nH2O (12) and [Cd(L2)(p-BDC)]n·nMeOH (13) (L1 = N,N’-bis(pyridin-4-ylmethyl)propane-1,2-diamine, L2 = N,N’-bis(pyridin-3-ylmethyl)propane-1,2-diamine, m-BDC2- = m-benzene dicarboxylate dianion, p-BDC2- = p-benzene dicarboxylate dianion), which have been characterized by elemental analysis, IR, TG, PL, powder and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The influence of different Cd(II) salts on the structure variations and properties have also been investigated. Complexes 1 and 3 present (4,4) layer motif accomplished by the interconnection of adjacent Cd(II) cations through L1 molecules and trans-conformational succinates or fumarates. In contrast, the cis-conformational succinates in complex 2 only afford the formation of chain structure. The L1 and L2 molecules in complexes 4 and 5 adopt the same coordination and join adjacent Cd(II) cations together with fumarates, giving rise to different 3D networks with vma and irl topology. The same coordination mode of L1 and L2 in complexes 6-8 join adjacent Cd(II) cations together with aromatic dicarboxylates, leading to different (63)(65.8), 2-periodic (6,3) and (4,4) layer motifs. The L2 molecules in complexes 9-13 present different coordination modes and join adjacent Cd(II) cations together with p-BDC2- dianions to form diverse (6,3) layer, different 3D networks with cds and eca topology. Therefore, the diverse coordination modes of the bis(pyridyl) ligand and the feature of different organic dicarboxylate anions can effectively influence the topological structures of these complexes. Luminescent investigation reveals that the emission maximum of these complexes varies from 403 to 433 nm in the solid state at room temperature.
