Coordination polymers and discrete complexes of Ag(I)-N-(pyridylmethylene)anilines: synthesis, crystal structures and photophysical properties
Reactions of AgO2C2F3 with (E)-N-(pyridylmethylene)aniline in which the pyridyl N is in the p- or m-position yielded two 1-D coordination polymers, [(AgO2C2F3)2(La)2]n (La = (E)-2,6-diisopropyl-N-(pyrid-3-ylmethylene)aniline) (1) and [(AgOC2F3)2(Ld)2]n (Ld = (E)-2,6-diisopropyl-N-(pyrid-4-ylmethylene)aniline) (5), and three discrete complexes, [(AgO2C2F3)2(La)4] (2), [AgO2C2F3(Lb)2] (Lb = (E)-N-(pyrid-4-ylmethylene)aniline) (3) and [(AgOC2F3)2(Lc)4] (Lc = (E)-2,6-dimethyl-N-(pyrid-4-ylmethylene)aniline) (4). The structures were determined by MS, FT-IR and NMR spectroscopies, elemental analysis and single crystal XRD. 1 is an organometallic coordination polymer with silver in η1-arene coordination, but is a discrete dimeric complex 2 when crystallized from warm diethylether. The geometries around silver(I) in 1 and 4 are tetrahedral, ‘inverted seesaw’ in 2 and T-shaped in 3 and in all the anion seems to play a role. Ag(I) centers in 5 have distorted trigonal bipyramid and inverted seesaw geometries. The trifluoroacetate anions in these complexes display variable monodentate and short bridging coordination patterns. All complexes absorb and strongly emit UV-Vis radiation at room temperature.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform.
