Pyridinium diaqua­bis­(methyl­enediphospho­nato-κ2 O,O′)chromate(III) tetra­hydrate

Abstract

In the title complex, (C5H6N)[Cr(CH4O6P2)2(H2O)2]·4H2O, the CrIII atom, lying on an inversion centre, is coordinated by two bidentate methyl­ene diphospho­nate ligands and two water molecules in a distorted octa­hedral coordination geometry. The pyridinium cation is located on an inversion centre, with an N atom and a C atom sharing a position each at a half occupancy. A three-dimensional network is constructed by O—H(...)O, N—H(...)O and C—H(...)O hydrogen bonds between the pyridin­ium cation, complex anion and uncoordinated water mol­ecules.

Comment

The title compound forms part of an ongoing study in our group involving methylene diphosphonate and its coordination to various metal cores. (Van der Merwe et al., 2009; Visser et al., 2010). Diphosphonic acids are useful for the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks exhibiting microporous properties (Barthelet et al., 2002).

The CrIII ion in the title complex is in a distorted octahedral environment (Fig. 1), with Cr—O bond distances ranging from 1.956 (4) to 1.991 (4) Å (Table 1). All the bond distances and angles are well within the normal range (Byun et al., 2006; Suh et al., 1997). The pyridinium cation is located on an inversion centre and an N atom and a C atom share a position at a half occupancy for each atom. A three-dimensional network is provided by numerous hydrogen bonds between the pyridinium cation, complex anion and uncoordinated water molecules (Table 2).

Experimental

CrCl3.6H2O (0.092 g, 0.347 mmol) was dissolved in water (40 ml) and ammonium hydroxide was gradually added dropwise in order to precipitate Cr(III) hydroxide. Methylene diphosphonate (0.347 g, 2 mmol) was added to the Cr(OH)3 and water (40 ml). The reaction solution was heated on an oil bath for 5 h at 100°C, after which pyridine (10 ml) was added to the solution. Boiling H2O (30 ml) was added and the solution was centrifuged. Green crystals of the title compound crystallized from the filtrate after several days.

Refinement

C-bound H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined as riding atoms, with C—H = 0.97 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C). The H atoms attached to hydroxy groups and water molecules were located on a difference Fourier map and refined isotropically except H3, which was refined as riding, with O3—H3 = 0.82 Å and Uiso(H3) = 1.5Ueq(O3). A 50% positional disorder was assigned to N1 and C4, which share a position of the pyridine ring, as this provided the best fit of the data. Short C—C bond interactions, probably due to this disorder, are observed for the pyridinium cation.
