Charge-Assisted Hydrogen-Bonded Networks of NH4+ and [Co(NH3)6]3+ with the New Linker Anion of 4-Phosphono-Biphenyl-4′-Carboxylic Acid
AbstractThe new linker molecule 4-phosphono-biphenyl-4′-carboxylic acid (H2O3P-(C6H4)2-COOH, H3BPPA) has been structurally elucidated in hydrogen-bonded networks with the ammonium cation NH4(H2BPPA)(H3BPPA) (1) and the hexaamminecobalt(III) cation [Co(NH3)6](BPPA)·4H2O (2). The protic O-H and N-H hydrogen atoms were found and refined in the low-temperature single-crystal X-ray structures. The hydrogen bonds in both structures are so-called charge-assisted; that is, the H-bond donor and/or acceptor carry positive and/or negative ionic charges, respectively. The H-bonded network in 1 consists of one formally mono-deprotonated 4-phosphonato-biphenyl-4′-carboxylic acid group; that is, a H2BPPA− anion and a neutral H3BPPA molecule, which together form a 3D hydrogen-bonded network. However, an almost symmetric resonance-assisted hydrogen bond (RAHB) bond [O···H = 1.17 (3) and 1.26 (3) Å, O···H···O = 180 (3)°] signals charge delocalization between the formal H2BPPA− anion and the formally neutral H3BPPA molecule. Hence, the anion in 1 is better formulated as [H2BPPA···H···H2BPPA]−. In the H-bonded network of 2 the 4-phosphonato-biphenyl-4′-carboxylic acid is triply deprotonated, BPPA3−. The [Co(NH3)6]3+ cation is embedded between H-bond acceptor groups, –COO− and –PO3− and H2O molecules. The incorporation of sixteen H2O molecules per unit cell makes 2 an analogue of the well-studied guanidinium sulfonate frameworks. View Full-Text
