Abstract: The compound [Ni(L)(isoph)2][Ni(L)]·8H2O (1; L = C-meso-5,5,7,12,12,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane; H2-isoph = isophthalic acid) has been synthesized and structurally characterized. Complex 1 exhibits a geometrically symmetric core with a {4/6} coordination number set. The coordination environment around the Ni(1) ion is a distorted octahedron, while the geometry around the four-coordinate Ni(2) is depicted as square planar in 1D hydrogen-bonded infinite chain. The compound crystallizes in the triclinic system P-1 with a = 8.602(2), b = 10.684(7), c = 16.550(3) Å, a = 91.04(4), b = 94.09(2), g = 111.09(4)°, V = 1413.9(10) Å3, Z = 1. The cyclic voltammogram of 1 undergoes one-electron wave corresponding to NiII/NiI process. The electronic spectra, electrochemical and TGA behavior of the complex are significantly affected by the nature of the hexamethyltetraaza macrocycle and the axial isoph2− ligand.
