Abstract

Treatment of 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane with Co(II)(ClO4)(2) or Ni(II)(ClO4)(2) gives isostructural one-dimensional coordination polymers. The metal ions have an octahedral geometry and are bridged by two crystallographically independent ligands along each chain. Alongside each coordination chain an array of non-coordinated ligands are hydrogen bonded at each end to the ligated water molecules. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
