Abstract

Three new compounds of formulae Co(bpe)(2)(NCS)(2). CH3OH, 1, [Co(bpe)(2)(H2O)(2)](ClO4)(2). 2CH(3)OH, 2 and [Co(bpe)(2)(H2O)(2)(CH3OH)(2)](ClO4)(2). bpe .H2O, 3, [bpe = trans-1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethene] have been synthesised and characterised by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The metal environment in 1-3 is distorted octahedral. Compound 1 is a polycatenane. Its structure consists of parallel layers containing Co2+ ions linked by bpe ligands, the Co . . . Co distance through the bpe bridge being 13.65(3) Angstrom. Each metal ion, in a layer, defines the edges of a rhombus. Two thiocyanate groups trans-coordinated to the metal atoms are perpendicular to the sheets. Each sheet has an infinite number of perpendicular sheets concatenated with it in such a way that a polycatenane structure results. The structure of 2 also contains parallel sheets composed of cobalt atoms and bpe molecules, but concatenation is absent and the thiocyanate groups are replaced by water molecules. In this case, the metal atoms define the edges of a square and the Co . . . Co distance through the bpe bridge is 13.78(3) Angstrom. Uncoordinated perchlorate anions and methanol molecules are linked by means of hydrogen bonds to the water molecules and they connect alternate parallel layers, occupying the middle of the intermediate layers. The structure of 3 exhibits an almost planar arrangement of Co2+ ions forming rectangular rings through hydrogen bonds involving both coordinated and free bpe groups and coordinated water and methanol molecules. The Co . . . Co distances through the coordinated and uncoordinated bpe bridges are 14.6(1) and 16.8(1) Angstrom, respectively. No concatenation of rings from different layers occurs in 3.
