Electrically conductive Cu(II)-based 1D coordination polymer with theoretical insight

Abstract

A nitro functionalized Cu(II) based one-dimensional coordination polymer (1D CP) [Cu(nip)(4-phpy)2]n (1) (H2nip = 5-nitroisophthalic acid and 4-phpy = 4-phenylpyridine) has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and single crystal X-ray diffraction (SCXRD). In the solid-state self-assembly of 1, two sets of weak intermolecular forces, CH•••π interaction among the axially bound 4-phpy ligands and π•••π interaction among bridging nip ligands from adjacent 1D coordination polymeric chains lead to 3D supramolecular packing. Interestingly compound 1 exhibits electrical conductivity in the semiconducting regime and behaves as Schottky barrier diode.
