A new trinuclear zinc complex Zn-3(2,2'-biPY)(2)(3,5-DMBA)(6).(H2O)1,5 (1) with 3,5-dimethylbenzoic . . .
A new trinuclear zinc complex Zn-3(2,2'-biPY)(2)(3,5-DMBA)(6).(H2O)1,5 (1) with 3,5-dimethylbenzoic acid (3,5-DMBA) and 2,2'-bipyridine as ligands has been synthesized in the mixed solvents of methanol and water. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c with a = 31.1497(15), b = 11.7576(6), c = 20.9049(10) A, = 118.4550(10), V = 6731.4(6) angstrom(3), D-c, = 1.412 g/cm(3), Z = 4, F(000) = 2972, GOOF = 1.069, the final R= 0.0667 and wR= 0.1917. The whole molecule consists of three zinc ions, six 3,5-DMBA molecules, two 2,2'-bipyridine molecules and one and half water molecules, in which three zinc ions are bridged by six mu(2)-eta(1):eta(0)-carboxylate groups of 3,5-DMBA". The Zn(1) atom is centrosymmetric, and adopts a distorted octahedral ZnO6 geometry, while the Zn(2) gives a distorted square pyramidal ZnO3N2 geometry. The spectroscopic characterization and thermal stability properties of the complex were investigated.
