The syntheses and crystal structures of the closely related but non-isostructural Cd2(C19H21N3O3F)4(H2O)2 center dot 4H2O (1) and Pb2(C19H21N3O3F)4 center dot 4H2O (2) are described, where C19H21N3O3F- is enrofloxacinate (enro). Both compounds contain centrosymmetric, binuclear, neutral complexes incorporating a central diamond-shaped M2O2 (M = Cd, Pb) structural unit. The Cd2+ coordination polyhedron in 1 is a CdO6 trigonal prism, including one coordinated water. The Pb2+ coordination polyhedron in 2 can be described as a very distorted square-based PbO5 pyramid, although two additional short Pb center dot center dot center dot O (3.1 angstrom) contacts are also present. In the crystal of the cadmium complex, O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds lead to a layered structure. In the lead compound, O-H center dot center dot center dot O and O-H center dot center dot center dot N interactions lead to chains in the crystal.
