Mixed-metal coordination networks constructed from Hg(CN)2 rods and Hg⋯Naz (az = azide) secondary interactions: Syntheses and structures of Hg(CN)2·(N3)2· Cu(C5H5N)2 and NaHg(CN)2· (N3)2·Cu(N3)

Abstract

The syntheses and crystal structures of Hg(CN)2·(N 3)2·Cu(C5H5N)2 (1) and NaHg(CN)2·(N3)2·Cu(N 3)(C3H10N2)2 (2) are reported. The interplay between linear Hg(CN)2 and N3- building units by way of long Hg⋯N secondary interactions leads to new types of hybrid inorganic-organic networks in these phases.
