A 0D discrete molecule [Co(3,5-pdc)(H2O)5].2H2O (1) was obtained in quantitative yield from the reaction of CoCl2.6H2O and pyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate (3,5-pdc) in pure water solvent at ambient temperature. While a 1D zigzag chain species, [{Co(3,5-pdc)(H2O)4}.H2O]n (2), was produced in a water-rich environment, a 2D layer compound, [Co(3,5-pdc)(H2O)2]n (3),(More)
A homochiral amino acid coordination network [{Ag3Cu3(l-methioninato)6(NO3)3(H2O)3}.7H2O]n, self-assembled from CuII, AgI, and l-methionine via a distinct soft-hard recognition process, shows interesting characteristics, in that it is constructed from 1D helical building blocks and contains homochiral channels in which 1D water chains are hosted.

We have synthesized a new series of chromium-group 15 dihydride and hydride complexes [H(2)As(Cr(CO)(5))(2)](-) (1) and [HE(Cr(CO)(5))(3)](2)(-) (E = As, 2a; E = Sb, 2b), which represent the first examples of group 6 complexes containing E-H fragments. The contrasting chemical reactivity of 2a and 2b with organic halogen derivatives is demonstrated. The(More)
The reactions of appropriate ratios of K2TeO3 and [Mn2(CO)10)] in superheated methanol solutions lead to a series of novel cluster anions [Te4Mn3(CO)10] (1), [Te2Mn3(CO)9]2- (2), [Te2Mn3(CO)9]- (3), and [Te2Mn4(CO)12]2- (4). When cluster 1 is treated with [Mn2(CO)10]/KOH in methanol, paramagnetic cluster 2 is formed in moderate yield. Cluster 2 is oxidized(More)
We have discovered a series of novel pentacarbonylchromium derivatives of bismuth from the reactions of NaBiO(3) with [Cr(CO)(6)] in KOH/MeOH solutions. When the reaction was carried out at room temperature, the highly charged [Bi[Cr(CO)(5)](4)](3-) (1) was obtained, whose structure was shown by X-ray analysis to possess a central bismuth atom tetrahedrally(More)
