Uranyl-copper(II) heterometallic oxalate complexes: coordination polymers and frameworks.

Five oxalate complexes containing both uranyl and copper(II) ions and 2,2′-bipyridine (bipy), 2,2′-bipyrimidine (bipym) or 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) as co-ligands have been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions and their crystal structures were determined. [UO2Cu(C2O4)(NO3)2(bipy)(H2O)] (1) is a molecular complex in which the two cations are connected… CONTINUE READING
