Tetra­aqua­bis[3-(2-pyridylsulfan­yl)propionato N-oxide]nickel(II)

Abstract

In the centrosymmetric title compound, [Ni(C8H8NO3S)2(H2O)4], the NiII ion, which lies on an inversion centre, is six coordinated by four water mol­ecules and two propionate O atoms from two 2-pyridylsulfanylpropionate N-oxide ligands, forming a slightly distorted octa­hedral geometry. An intra­molecular O—H(...)O hydrogen bond stabilizes the mol­ecular conformation. The crystal packing is consolidated by inter­molecular O—H(...)O and C—H(...)O hydrogen bonding.

Comment

N-oxides and their derivatives show a broad spectrum of biological activity such as antifungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial activities (Lobana & Bhatia, 1989; Symons & West, 1985). These compounds are also found to be involved in DNA strand scission under physiological conditions (Katsuyuki et al., 1991; Bovin et al., 1992). Pyridine N–oxides bearing a sulfur group in position two display significant antimicrobial activity (Leonard et al., 1955). In view of the importance of N–oxides, we have previously reported the crystal structures of N–oxide derivatives (Jebas et al., 2005; Ravindran et al., 2008). As an extension of our work on N–oxide derivatives, we report here the crystal structure of the title compound.

The asymmetric unit comprises of half molecule of the title compound, the other half is symmetry generated [symmetry code: -x + 1,-y + 1,-z + 1]. The NiII ion which lies on an inversion centre is six coordinated by four water molecules and two propianoto oxygen atoms from two 2-pyridylsulfanylpropionato N-oxide ligands forming a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. The bond lengths and angles agree well with the N–oxide derivatives reported earlier (Jebas et al., 2005)

Intramolecular O—H···O hydrogen bonding influences the conformation of the molecule. The crystal packing (Fig. 2) is consolidated by intermolecular O—H···O and C—H···O hydrogen bonding together with intramolecular S···O = 2.6968 (10) Å; O···O = 2.6248 (12) Å, intermolecular O···Oi = 2.6469 (12) Å; O···Oii = 2.6570 (12) Å and O···Oiii = 2.9455 (12) Å [symmetry code: (i):1 + x,y,-1 + z; (ii) 2 - x,1 - y,1 - z; (iii) 1 - x,1 - y,1 - z] short contacts. The molecules are stacked along the a axis.

Experimental

A mixture of the potassium salt of 3(1-oxo-pyridinine- 2-sulfanyl)propionic acid (0.237 g,1 mmol) and Nickel (II) chloride (0.13 g, 0.5 mmol), in water (20 ml) was heated at 333k with continous stirring for one hour. The solution was kept aside for slow evaporation. After two weeks, green colored crystals were obtained.

Refinement

After checking their presence in the Fourier map, all the hydrogen atoms were fixed on the calculated positions and allowed to ride on their parent atoms with the C—H = 0.95 Å (aromatic), C—H = 0.99 Å (methylene) and O—H = 0.81–0.82 Å (water) with Uiso(C) in the range of 1.2Ueq(C) and 1.5Ueq(O).

Special details

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.
Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
