The hydrothermal synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of Ag (1)-4, 4"-bipyridine-based coordination polymer

Document Type : Research Paper




Hydrothermal synthetic were studied for the preparation of coordination polymeric material based
on Ag (I) and 4, 4"-bipy. A polymeric compound [Ag (4, 4'-bipy)].NO3. (I), was prepared and
structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1(91% yield) was isolated
from the reaction of AgNO3 with 4, 41bipy in 2:1 molar ratio. In compound I. each silver (I) is
linked to two nitrogens of different but symmetry-equivalent 4, 4"-bipy units in a nearly linear
coordination to form extended chains.
