Novel mixed-ligand complexes of coumarilate/N,N?-diethylnicotinamide with some transition metals: Synthesis and structural characterization
Coordination complexes of transition metal cations (CoII, NiII, CuII and ZnII) containing coumarilate and N,N?-diethylnicotinamide were synthesized. The structural characterization and thermal behaviour analysis of novel samples synthesized were conducted through elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, solid-state UV–Vis, direct and injection probe mass spectra, FTIR spectra, thermoanalytic TG-DTG/DTA and single crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The structural details of single crystals of [Co(dena)2(H2O)4](coum)2 (I) and [Cu(coum)2(dena)2(H2O)2] (III) complexes were resolved completely. Moreover, the results of analysis obtained for [Ni(coum)2(dena)2(H2O)2] (II) and [Zn(dena)2(H2O)4](coum)2 (IV) complexes were interpreted considering the samples with crystal structures defined and made assumptions about the structural details. It was determined that the complex of CoII metal cation has salt-type structure and the coordination number of metal is accomplished to six as the sum of 4 mol of water and also 2 mol of N,N?-diethylnicotinamide ligands in trans position located within the coordination sphere. It was observed that 2 mol of coumarilate anions are located outside the coordination sphere and have stabilized to the charge (2+) of metal. The CuII complex has totally molecular structure, and the coordination sphere of metal cation was 6 as the sum of 2 mol of water, 2 mol of N,N?-diethylnicotinamide and 2 mol of monoanionic monodentate coumarilate ligands. All ligands have been located in –trans position. The geometry of both complex structures is distorted octahedral. It is assumed that the NiII complex structure is isostructural with CuII complex structure and also does ZnII complex with CoII structure. It was determined that the decomposition products obtained from thermal analysis are the oxides of related metal cations. © 2017, Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.
