A series of cyanide-bridged coordination networks has been prepared which contain [Ru(phen)(CN)4](2-) anions, Ln(III) cations, and additional oligopyridine ligands (1,10-phenanthroline, 2,2':6',2'''-terpyridine or 2,2'-bipyrimidine) which coordinate to the Ln(III) centres. Five structural types have been identified and examples of each type of structure are(More)
Slow evaporation of aqueous solutions containing mixtures of Na 2[Os(phen)(CN) 4], Ln(III) salts (Ln = Pr, Nd, Gd, Er, Yb), and (in some cases) an additional ligand such as 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) or 2,2'-bipyrimidine (bpym) afforded crystalline coordination networks in which the [Os(phen)(CN) 4] (2-) anions are coordinated to Ln(III) cations via(More)
The mixed-valent cerium(III/IV) oxide clusters {Ce(10)} and {Ce(22)}, derived from condensation reactions of cerium carboxylate coordination polymers, exhibit molecular growth tendencies similar to those of 'classical' group V and VI polyoxometalates, but with increasing nuclearity approach the structure of the parental oxide, CeO(2).
The bridging of hexanuclear mixed-valent carboxylate coordination clusters of the type [Mn(6)O(2)(O(2)CR)(10)] (R = CMe(3); CHMe(2)) featuring a {Mn(II)(4)Mn(III)(2)(mu(4)-O)(2)} core by geometrically rigid as well as flexible spacer ligands such as pyrazine (pyz), nicotinamide (na), or 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethane (bpe) results exclusively in one-dimensional(More)
A series of new octanuclear propeller-like aminoalcohol-supported Fe(III) oxocarboxylate coordination clusters, [Fe8O3(O2CCHMe2)9(tea)(teaH)3]·MeCN·2(H2O) (1), [Fe8O3(O2CCHMe2)6(N3)3(tea)(teaH)3] (2), [Fe8O3(O2CCMe3)6(N3)3(tea)(teaH)3]·0.5(EtOH) (3), and [Fe8O3(O2CCHMe2)6(N3)3(mdea)3(MeO)3] (4) (where teaH3 = triethanolamine; mdeaH2 =(More)
A one-dimensional linear coordination polymer {[Cu3(μ3-OH)(2-pyao)3(bdc)]·6(H2O)}n () composed of trinuclear [Cu3(μ3-OH)(2-pyao)3](2+) metallacrown cores bridged by bis-carboxylato linkers has been obtained by treatment of copper(ii) fluoride with pyridine-2-aldoxime (2-pyaoH) ligand and benzene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid (H2bdc).

The reaction of the μ(3)-oxido-centred trinuclear isobutyrate cluster [Fe(3)O(O(2)CCHMe(2))(6)(H(2)O)(3)](+) with an excess of phenol (PhOH) in chloroform produces a novel octanuclear Fe(III) cluster, cyclo-tetra-μ(2)-hydroxido-dodeca-μ(2)-isobutyrato-κ(24)O:O'-octa-μ(2)-phenolato-κ(16)O:O'-octairon(III) phenol hexasolvate monohydrate,(More)
A straightforward approach to heterometallic Mn-Fe cluster-based coordination polymers is presented. By employing a mixed-valent μ(3)-oxo trinuclear manganese(II/III) pivalate cluster, isolated as [Mn(II)Mn(III)(2)O(O(2)CCMe(3))(6)(hmta)(3)]·(solvent) (hmta = hexamethylenetetramine; solvent = n-propanol (1), toluene (2)) in the reaction with a μ(3)-oxo(More)
The synthesis, crystal structures and magnetic properties of five new manganese compounds are reported. These include a linear trinuclear cluster [Mn(II)(3)(O(2)CCHMe(2))(6)(dpa)(2)].2MeCN (1) (dpa = 2,2'-dipyridylamine), a tetranuclear cluster [Mn(II)(2)Mn(III)(2)O(2)(O(2)CCMe(3))(6)(bpy)(2)] (3) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine), and chain coordination polymers(More)
