Two one-dimensional coordination polymers generated from a new benzimidazole bridging ligand and CdX2 (X = Br and I).

Abstract

The novel asymmetric bridging ligand 1-[(pyridin-3-yl)methyl]-2-[4-(pyridin-3-yl)phenyl]-1H-benzimidazole (L) has been used to construct the coordination polymers catena-poly[[[dibromidocadmium(II)]-μ3-1-[(pyridin-3-yl)methyl]-2-[4-(pyridin-3-yl)phenyl]-1H-benzimidazole] monohydrate], {[CdBr2(C24H18N4)]·H2O}n, (I), and catena-poly[[diiodidocadmium(II)]-μ3-1… (More)
