A nickel(II) pentaaza macrocyclic complex containing a 1-hexadecyl pendant chain, [Ni(C(25)H(55)N(5))](ClO(4))(2).H(2)O (1), was synthesized by a one-pot metal-template condensation reaction. Crystal data for 1: triclinic, Ponemacr;, a = 8.333(4) A, b = 8.356(3) A, c = 28.374(9) A, alpha = 81.865(19) degrees, beta = 86.242(18) degrees, gamma = 63.871(17) degrees, Z = 2. Solid 1 forms hydrophobic layers that are constructed by the long alkyl chains of the macrocycles. Solid 1 exchanges ClO(4… CONTINUE READING
