Poly[diaqua-μ2-oxalato-di-μ4-terephthalato-diytterbium(III)]

Abstract

The crystal structure of the title complex, [Yb2(C8H4O4)2(C2O4)(H2O)2]n, features an extended three-dimensional framework made up of Yb3+ ions coordinated by terephthalate ligands, oxalate ligands and water mol­ecules. The Yb3+ ion has a distorted square-anti­prismatic coordination formed by one aqua ligand, two O atoms from an oxalate ligand and five O atoms belonging to four terephthalate anions. Two symmetry-independent terephthalate anions, as well as the oxalate anion, occupy special positions on inversion centers. The water molecule participates in O—H(...)O hydrogen bonding with both terephthalate anions.

Comment

The title compound is isostructural with its Lu and Dy analogues (Li & Wang, 2009; Li et al., 2009). As illustrated in Fig. 1, the Yb atoms is coordinated by two oxalate O atoms and five O atoms of four terephthalate anions; an aqua ligand completes a distorted square antiprismatic geometry. The Yb-O distances are in the range of 2.208 (6)–2.790 (6) Å, with an average Yb-O bond of 2.352 Å; these parameters are similar to M-O bonds found in the above mentioned previously reported isostructural complexes.

In the title complex, both symmetry independent terephthalate (tp) anions occupy special positions on the inversion centers; nevertheless they exhibit different modes of coordination of Yb atoms. The tp1 anion (O1 to O2, C1 to C4) functions as chelating-bridging tridentate ligand: two carboxylate oxygen atoms (O1 and O2) chelate one Yb atom; the O1 atom is additionally bonded to another Yb atom; the Yb···Yb separation is 4.232 (1) Å. Two edge-sharing [YbO8] polyhedra are bridged by the bidentate tp2 (O3 to O4, C5 to C8) ligands thus generating chains along the [010] direction. The chains are further linked by the tp1 and tp2 ligands into three-dimensional framework. The oxalate anion is also located on the inversion center and acts as a tetradentate ligand connecting the edge-sharing [YbO8] polyhedra along the [100] direction thus even further stabilizing the three-dimensional framework. The aqua ligand provides H-bond donors which participate in H-bonds with terephthalate oxygen atoms O2 and O3.

Experimental

A mixture of YbCl3.6H2O (1.00 mmol, 0.39 g), oxalic acid (0.50 mmol, 0.05 g), terephthalic acid (0.50 mmol, 0.09 g), NaOH (2.00 mmol, 0.08 g) and H2O (10.0 ml) was heated in a 23 ml stainless steel reactor with a Teflon liner at 453 K for 72 h. A small amount of colorless plate-like crystals were filtered and washed with water and acetone.

Refinement

H atoms attached to C atoms were included at calculated positions and treated as riding atoms [C–H = 0.93 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C)]. Water H atoms were located in difference Fourier maps placed at the idealized positions with O-H distance of 0.85 Å and included in the final refinement as fixed contribution with Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(O). The highest density peak and deepest hole are located at 0.87 Å and 1.09 Å from the Yb atom respectively.

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.
