Synthesis, crystal structures and characterizations of two homochiral coordination polymers based on a chiral reduced Schiff base ligand

S.-M. Ying, X.-H. Huang, W.-K. Luo and Y.-C. Xiao

Abstract: Two homochiral coordination polymers based on a chiral reduced Schiff base ligand, namely poly[([mu]5-4-{[(NR,1S)-(1-carboxyl­ato-2-phenyl­ethyl)amino]­methyl}benzoato)zinc(II)], [Zn(C17H15NO4)]n, (1), and poly[([mu]5-4-{[(NR,1S)-(1-car­boxyl­­ato-2-phenyl­ethyl)amino]­methyl}benzoato)cobalt(II)], [Co(C17H15NO4)]n, (2), have been obtained by hydro­thermal methods and studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analyses, powder X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, IR spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy. Compounds (1) and (2) are isostructural and crystallize in the P212121 space group. Both display a three-dimensional network structure with a one-dimensional channel, with the benzyl group of the ligand directed towards the channel. An investigation of photoluminescence properties shows that compound (1) displays a strong emission in the purple region.
