The Effect of Hydrogen Bonding and π–π Stacking to Stabilization of 3D Networks of a New Proton Compound, (a-6-mpyH)(Hpyzd) H2O

Document Type : Research Paper




A new proton transfer compound, formulated as (Hamp-6-pic)(Hpyzd) ∙H2O (1), has been synthesized from the reaction of pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylic acid (H2pyzd)  and 2-amino-6-methyl pyridine (amp-6-pic), in 1:1 molar ratio. Extensive O−H×××O, N−H×××N and O−H×××O hydrogen bonds involving (Hamp-6-pic)+ cation, (Hpyzd)- anion and co-crystal water molecule٫ static electronic٫ and π…π stacking interactions form a three-dimensional network.
