Multi-component self-assembly of molecule based materials by coordination networks and weak intermolecular synthons
Förlag: Royal Society of Chemistry
The coordination polymer [Fe(SCN)(2)(1,2-bis(4-pyridylmethylene)hydrazine)(2)](n) [Fe(phenanthroline)(3)](2n)(ClO4)(2n)center dot n1,2-bis(4-pyridylmethylene)hydrazine center dot 4nH(2)O 1 was crystallised from a MeOH/MeCN solution and the structure consists of layered (4,4) 2D-nets with supramolecular ([Fe(phen)(3)](2)bphz)(4+) units in the pores and disordered water and perchlorate anions. The same supramolecular motif could be independently prepared as [Fe(phen)(3)](2)center dot bphz(ClO4)(4)center dot xMeOH(2), and the [Ru(phenanthroline)(3)](2+) compound 3, isostructural to 1, was also prepared although a complete structure determination was prevented by low crystal quality. Compounds 1 and 3 are rare examples of how several large and different components can be assembled inside a 2D coordination network and provide a concept for multi-component self-assembly.
