Poly[bis­(methanol-κO)tris­(μ-pyrimidine-κ2 N:N′)tetra­kis(thio­cyanato-κN)dinickel(II)]

Abstract

In the crystal structure of the title compound, [Ni2(NCS)4(C4H4N2)3(CH3OH)2]n, each nickel(II) cation is coordinated by three N-bonded pyrimidine ligands, two N-bonded thio­cyanate anions and one O-bonded methanol mol­ecule in a distorted octa­hedral environment. The asymmetric unit consists of one nickel cation, two thio­cyanate anions and one methanol mol­ecule in general positions, as well as one pyrimidine ligand located around a twofold rotation axis. The crystal structure consists of μ-N:N′ pyrimidine-bridged zigzag-like nickel thio­cyanate chains; these are further linked by μ-N:N-bridging pyrimidine ligands into layers which are stacked perpendicular to the b axis. The layers are connected via weak O—H(...)S hydrogen bonding.

Comment

Recently, we have shown that new ligand deficient coordination polymers with interesting magnetic properties can be prepared by thermal decomposition of suitable ligand rich precursor compounds (Näther & Greve, 2003; Wriedt et al., 2008; and Näther et al., 2007). In our ongoing investigation on the synthesis, structures and properties of new coordination polymers based on paramagnetic metal pseudohalides and N-donor ligands (Lloret et al. 1998), we have reacted nickel(II) thiocyanate with pyrimidine in methanol. In this reaction single crystals of the title compound has been formed.

The 2:3 title compound [Ni(SCN)2(pyrimidine)3*2MeOH]n (Fig. 1) represents a two-dimensional coordination polymer, which consists of µ-1,3-(N,N) pyrimidine bridged zigzag like nickel thiocyanates chains, which are further linked by µ-1,3-(N,N) bridged pyrimidine ligands into layers (Fig. 2 and 3). Within each layer the nickel cations are bridged by three µ-1,3-(N,N') pyrimidine ligands and are further terminal coordinated by two N-bonded thiocyanate anions and one O-bonded methanol molecule. Thus, each nickel cation is octahedrally coordinated. The asymmetric unit consists of one nickel cation, two thiocyanate anions and one methanol molecule in general position as well as one pyrimidine ligand located around a twofold rotation axis. The Ni—NCS distances amount to 2.0334 (14) and 2.0376 (13) Å and the Ni—Npyrimidine distances range from 2.1118 (13) to 2.1244 (13) Å as well as the angles around the iron cations range between 86.62 (5) and 177.66 (5)° (Tab. 1). The shortest intra- and interchain Ni···Ni distances amount to 5.9470 (1) and 8.4023 (1) Å, respectively.

Experimental

Ni(SCN)2, pyrimidine and methanol were obtained from Alfa Aesar. 0.125 mmol (21.5 mg) Ni(SCN)2, 0.25 mmol (20.0 mg) pyrimidine and 0.5 ml methanol were transfered in a closed test-tube. The mixture was heated at 120 °C for three days. After cooling green needle-shaped single crystals of the title compound were obtained in a heterogenous mixture.

Refinement

All H atoms were located in difference map but were positioned with idealized geometry and were refined isotropic with Ueq(H) = 1.2 Ueq(C) of the parent atom using a riding model with C—H = 0.95 Å.

The absolute structure was determined on the bases of 1746 Friedel pairs. The crystal was racemically twinned and therefore a twin refinement was performed (BASF: 0.09169 with e.s.d.: 0.00739).

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.
