In order to understand how the polarization of aromatic systems, through the introduction of a nitrogen heteroatom, affects the π-π interactions and crystal packing of mercury coordination compounds, in this study, N-(quinolin-2-yl)pyrazine-2-carboxamide and N-(quinolin-3-yl)pyrazine-2-carboxamide ligands were employed in the synthesis of five Hg(II)… (More)
In the crystal structure of the title compound, [HgBr(2)(C(5)H(5)N(3)O)(2)](n), the Hg(II) cation is located on an inversion center and is coordinated by two N atoms from the pyrazine rings and four bridging Br(-) anions in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The Br(-) anions bridge the Hg(II) cations with significantly different Hg-Br bond distances of… (More)
In the polymeric title compound, [HgCl(2)(C(5)H(5)N(3)O)(2)](n), the Hg(II) atom (site symmetry ) adopts a distorted trans-HgN(2)Cl(4) octa-hedral coordination geometry. In the crystal, adjacent mercury ions are bridged by pairs of chloride ions, generating infinite  chains, and N-H⋯O and N-H⋯(N,N) hydrogen bonds help to consolidate the packing.
In this study, three Hg(II) complexes, [HgCl2(L(2-naph))]n, 1, [HgBr2(L(2-naph))]n, 2 and [HgI2(L(2-naph))2], 3 where L(2-naph) is N-(naphthalene-2-yl)pyrazine-2-carboxamide ligand have been synthesized and characterized. X-ray single crystal diffraction analysis of these compounds reveals that 1 and 2 are isostructural coordination polymers and 3 is a… (More)
