The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Zn(C12H11N2O4)2(H2O)4]·4H2O, contains one-half of the complex mol­ecule and two uncoordin­ated water mol­ecules. The four water O atoms in the equatorial plane around the ZnII centre ([\overline 1] symmetry) form a distorted square-planar arrangement, while the distorted octa­hedral coordination geometry is completed by the O atoms of the zwitterionic 2-methyl­benzimidazolium-1,3-diacetate ligands in the axial positions. The benzimidazole ring system is planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.041 (3) Å. Intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonding results in the formation of a non-planar six-membered ring. In the crystal structure, strong intra- and inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into a three-dimensional network. ππ contacts between benzimidazole rings [centroid–centroid distance = 3.899 (1) Å] may further stabilize the structure.

Comment top

The quest to rational design and construct metal-organic frameworks (MOF) is highly topical, for their intriguing topologies and potential applications as functional materials in many areas such as catalysis, molecular adsorption, magnetism properties, non-linear optics and molecular sensing (Robson, 2000; Kitagawa et al., 2004). In order to explore further the influence of novel polycarboxylate ligand which is a good candidate as building block on MOFs, we developed a flexible ligand 1-acetoxy-2-methylbenzimidazole-3-acetate acid [HL] (Ni et al., 2007), to prepare the title mononuclear complex. We report herein its crystal structure.

The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (Fig. 1), contains one-half molecule, two coordinated and two uncoordinated water molecules. The Zn atom is surrounded by two 2-methylbenzimidazolium-1,3-diacetate and four water molecules. The four O atoms (O5, O6, O5A and O6A atoms) in the equatorial plane around the Zn atom form a distorted square-planar arrangement, while the distorted octahedral coordination is completed by the O atoms of the 2-methylbenzimidazolium-1,3-diacetate ligands (O4 and O4A) in the axial positions [symmetry code: (A) -x, -y, -z] (Table 1). The benzimidazole ring system is planar with a maximum deviation of 0.041 (3) Å for atom C7. Intramolecular O-H···O hydrogen bond results in the formation of a six-membered ring (Zn1/O3/O4/C6/C10/H6A) having twisted conformation.

In the crystal structure, strong intra- and intermolecular O-H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 2) link the molecules into a three-dimensional network, in which they may be effective in the stabilization of the structure. The ππ contact between the benzimidazole rings, Cg1—Cg2i [symmetry code: (i) 1/2 + x, 1/2 - y, 1/2 + z, where Cg1 and Cg2 are centroids of the rings A (N1/N2/C1/C6/C7) and B (C1-C6), respectively] may further stabilize the structure, with centroid-centroid distance of 3.899 (1) Å.

Experimental top

After the pH of a mixture containing ZnCl2.2H2O (0.0408 g, 0.3 mmol) and ligand HL (0.0498 g, 0.2 mmol) was adjusted by ammonia to 7, the resulting solution was sealed in a Teflon-lined steel liner (25 ml) and then heated at 423 K for 3 d. Colorless block crystals were collected (yield; 28%).

Refinement top

H atoms of water molecules were located in difference Fourier maps and refined isotropically. The remaining H atoms were positioned geometrically with C-H = 0.93, 0.97 and 0.96 Å, for aromatic, methylene and methyl H atoms, respectively, and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with Uiso(H) = xUeq(C), where x = 1.5 for methyl H and x = 1.2 for all other H atoms.

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
