Poly[[diaquatris([mu]2-4,4'-bipyridine-[kappa]2N,N')tetrakis(phenylacetato-[kappa]O)dinickel(II)] dihydrate]

X.-L. Zhang and S. W. Ng

Abstract: The polymeric title molecule, {[Ni2(C8H7O2)4(C10H8N2)3(H2O)2]·2H2O}n, lies on a center of symmetry at the mid-point of the Cpyridine-Cpyridine bond of one of the two 4,4'-bipyridine molecules that link the adjacent aquanickel(II)-dicarboxylate units into a linear chain. The other 4,4'-bipyridine molecule connects adjacent chains into a square (C10H8N2)3Ni2 grid. The ladder-like layer structure is disordered in all the organic groups bonded to the metal atom; the uncoordinated water molecules interact within the layers through hydrogen bonds.
