Abstract

The title compound, poly[[di-aqua-bis-[1,5-bis-(pyridin-4-yl)pentane-κ(2) N:N']cadmium] bis-(perchlorate) 1,5-bis-(pyridin-4-yl)pentane ethanol mono-solvate], [Cd(C15H18N2)2(H2O)2](ClO4)2·C15H18N2·C2H6O, is a layered coordination polymer built up from highly squashed 4(4) nets in which the octa-hedral trans-CdO2N4 nodes (Cd site symmetry -1) are linked by the bifunctional ligands, forming infinite (110) sheets. The cationic sheets are charge-balanced by inter-layer perchlorate ions. A free 1,5-bis-(pyridin-4-yl)pentane mol-ecule and an ethanol mol-ecule of crystallization are also found in the inter-sheet region. A number of O-H⋯O, O-H⋯N and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds help to consolidate the layered structure.
