Abstract

Abstract: Six mixed metal complexes with 3-aminopyridine (3-ampy) as a co-ligand have been synthesized: catena-{[M(μ2-3-ampy)(H2O)4]SO4·H2O} (M=Ni (1) and Co (2)), [Co(3-ampy)4(NCS)2] (3), [Co(3-ampy)2(NCS)2] (4), [Co(3-ampy)4(N3)2] (5) and mer-[Co(3-ampy)3(N3)3] (6), (NCS=isothiocyanate ion, N3 azide ion), and characterized by physio-chemical and spectroscopic methods as well as single crystal X-ray and powder diffraction. In the isostructural complexes 1 and 2 single μ2-3-ampy links the Ni(II) and Co(II) centers into polymeric chains. The mononuclear Co(II) and Co(III) pseudohalide complexes 3–6 reveal only terminal 3-ampy ligands. The 3-ampy ligands form supramolecular hydrogen bonded systems via their NH2-groups and non-covalent π-π ring-ring interactions via their pyridine moieties. Thermoanalytical properties were investigated for 1–3. Graphic abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
