S. Hou, Q.-K. Liu, Y.-A. Li, J.-P. Ma and Y.-B. Dong

Synopsis: In a polymer of 2,5-bis[4-methyl-3-(pyridin-3-yl)phenyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazole (L) with ZnCl2, one-dimensional P (plus) and M (minus) helical chains are formed, where the ligand has different directions of twist. The helical chains stack together via interchain [pi]-[pi] and C-H...[pi] interactions.

Formula: C26H20N4O and [ZnCl2(C26H20N4O)]
