Abstract: Correlative studies of three oxalato-bridged polymers, obtained under hydrothermal conditions for the two isostructural compounds {Rb(HC2O4)(H2C2O4)(H2O)2}1, 1, {H3O(HC2O4)(H2C2O4).2H2O}1, 2, and by conventional synthetic method for {Rb(HC2O4)}3, 3, allowed the identification of H-bond patterns and structural dimensionality. Ferroïc domain structures are confirmed by electric measurements performed on 3. Although 2 resembles one oxalic acid sesquihydrate, its structure determination doesn’t display any kind of disorder and leads to recognition of a supramolecular network identical to hybrid s-block series, where moreover, unusual H3O+ and NH4+ similarity is brought out. Thermal behaviors show that 1D frameworks with extended H-bonds, whether with or without a metal center, have the same stability. Inversely, despite the dimensionalities, the same metallic intermediate and final compounds are obtained for the two Rb+ ferroïc materials.
Keywords: extended framework; thermal behavior; hydrogen-bonded motifs; hybrid materials; cocrystals; coordination polymers; supramolecular synthesis; ferroïc properties; homosynthon
