(This article belongs to the Special Issue Structural Characterization of Metallic Complexes)
In this paper, three new heterometallic compounds were described and compared with the molecular formula [Cu(pn)2Zn(NCS)4] (1), [Cu(N,N-Me2-en)2Zn(NCS)4] (2), [Cu(N-Me-en)2Zn(NCS)4]∙½H2O (3) where pn = 1,2−diaminopropane, N,N-Me2-en = N,N‒dimethylethylenediamine and N-Me-en = N-methylethylenediamine, respectively. The compounds mentioned above were characterized by elemental analysis, infrared (IR), electronic, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectra, and magnetic studies. Crystal structures for 1 and 2 were determined by X-ray analysis. Copper(II) in these complexes adopts 4 + 2 coordination with two elongated (in 2 very long and considered as semi-coordination) Cu-S bonds. The Cu-N and Cu-S bond lengths depend on substituent position affecting steric hindrance and hence a topology of the chain. Both chains form different zigzag patterns characterized by one or two Cu-Zn distance values. Weak magnetic interaction is observed, ferromagnetic in the case of 1 and antiferromagnetic in the case of 2, due to diversity of the above structural features. View Full-Text
