1.  Zinc(II) and Nickel(II) Benzoate Complexes from the Use of 1-methyl-4,5-diphenylimidazole 
Two new complexes, [Zn(O2CPh)2(L)2]·2MeOH (1·2MeOH) and [Ni2(O2CPh))4(L)2]·2MeCN (2·2MeCN), have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray analysis in the course of an ongoing investigation of the MII/X−/L [MII = Co, Ni, Cu, Zn; X− = Cl−, Br−, I−, NCS−, NO3−, N3−, PhCO2−; L = 1-methyl-4,5-diphenylimidazole] reaction system, aiming at understanding and assessing the relative strength and the way in which the intermolecular interactions control the supramolecular organization of these compounds. In the mononuclear complex 1·2MeOH, the benzoate ion acts as a monodentate ligand resulting in a distorted tetrahedral N2O2 coordination environment. Complex 2·2MeCN exhibits a dinuclear paddle-wheel structure; each NiII has a square pyramidal NiNO4 chromophore with four benzoate oxygens in the basal plane and the pyridine-type nitrogen atom of one ligand L at the apex. The structure of 1·2MeOH is stabilized by intramolecular π-π interactions between aromatic rings of adjacent 4,5-diphenylimidazole moieties; it is a feature also evidenced in similar compounds of the type [MX2L2].

2.  Mononuclear and Dinuclear Manganese(II) Complexes from the Use of Methyl(2-pyridyl)ketone Oxime 
The reactions of methyl(2-pyridyl)ketone oxime, (py)C(Me)NOH, with manganese(II) sulfate monohydrate have been investigated. The reaction between equimolar quantities of MnSO4 · H2O and (py)C(Me)NOH in H2O lead to the dinuclear complex [Mn2(SO4)2{(py)C(Me)NOH}4] · (py)C(Me)NOH, 1 · (py)C(Me)NOH, while employment of NaOMe as base affords the compound [Mn(HCO2)2{(py)C(Me)NOH}2] (2). The structures of both compounds have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. In both complexes, the organic ligand chelates through its nitrogen atoms. The IR data are discussed in terms of the nature of bonding and the structures of the two complexes.

3.  Synthesis and Characterization of a Linear [Mn3(O2CMe)4(py)8]2+ Complex 
Two new compounds that consist of the linear trinuclear manganese(II) cation [Mn3(O2CMe)4(py)8]2+ cocrystallizing with different counteranions (I3−, [1]; ClO4−, [2]) are reported. Complex 1 was prepared from the reaction of [Mn(O2CMe)2] · 4H2O with I2 in MeCO2H/py, whereas complex 2 was isolated from the reaction of [Mn3O(O2CMe)6(py)3] · py with [Mn(ClO4)2] · 6H2O in MeCN/py. The crystal structures of both compounds were determined by single crystal X-ray crystallography. Magnetic susceptibility studies that were performed in microcrystalline powder of 1 in the 2–300 K range revealed the presence of antiferromagnetic exchange interactions that resulted in an S = 5/2 ground spin state.

4.  (2E,4E,6E)-3-Methyl-7-(pyren-1-yl)octa-2,4,6-trienoic acid 
The title compound, C25H20O2, was synthesized by a Wittig reaction between triphen­yl[1-(pyren-1-yl)eth­yl]phospho­nium bromide and ethyl (2E,4E)-3-methyl-6-oxohexa-2,4-dienoate, in the presence of n-butyl lithium, followed by saponification. It was obtained pure in the all-trans configuration following crystallization from ethyl acetate. The asymmetric unit contains two independent mol­ecules (A and B), which are arranged almost parallel to each other within the crystal structure. The triene chain is not coplanar with the pyrene ring system, forming dihedral angles of 52.8 (1) and 42.2 (1)° for mol­ecules A and B, respectively. Inter­molecular hydrogen bonds between the carboxyl groups of the mol­ecules link them into centrosymmetric pairs, AA and BB, each with the R 2 2(8) graph-set motif.

5.  (Z)-tert-Butyl 2-(4-amino-9H-fluoren-9-yl­idene)acetate 
The title compound, C19H19NO2, obtained as an almost equimolar mixture (as shown by 1H NMR) with the E isomer through a Wittig reaction between 4-amino-9H-fluoren-9-one and the stabilized ylide Ph3P=CHCO2C(CH3)3, was obtained pure in the Z configuration following crystallization from toluene. The mol­ecule shows a planar arrangement of the ring system and the new double bond, whereas the carbonyl O atom forms a 45.1 (3)° dihedral angle with it. The mol­ecules are linked by N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming cyclic structures with R 4 4(24) graph-set motifs. These motifs are connected to each other, giving rise to a sheet structure parallel to the ab plane. The linkage within the sheets is further enhanced by π–π stacking inter­actions between the fluorene units [centroid–centroid distance = 3.583 (2) Å].
