Abstract top

In the molecule of the title compound, [CoBr2(C11H10N2)], the CoII atom is four-coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral geometry by two N atoms from a chelating 6-methyl-2,2'-bipyridine ligand and two terminal Br atoms. In the crystal, [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions between the pyridine rings along the a-axis direction [centroid-centroid distance = 3.761 (7) Å] and C-H...Br hydrogen bonds in the bc plane together generate the three-dimensional packing.

Comment top

Recently, we reported the synthesis and crystal structure of [In(6-mbipy)Cl3(DMSO)], (II) (Shirvan et al., 2012) and [Cd(6-mbipy)Br2(DMSO)], (III) (Shirvan & Haydari Dezfuli, 2012) (6-mbipy = 6-methyl-2,2'-bipyridine, DMSO = dimethyl sulfoxide). 6-Methyl-2,2'-bipyridine is a good ligand and a few complexes with 6-mbipy have been prepared, such as that of [Hg(6-mbipy)Cl2], (IV) (Ahmadi et al., 2008a), [Pt(6-mbipy)Cl4], (V) (Amani et al., 2009), [Pb4(NO3)8(6-mbipy)4], (VI) (Ahmadi et al., 2009), [Zn(6-mbipy)Br2], (VII) (Kalateh et al., 2010), [Zn(6-mbipy)Cl2], (VIII) (Ahmadi et al., 2008b), [Pd(6-mbipy)Cl2], (IX) (Newkome et al., 1982) and [Ru(6-mbipy)3][BF4]2, (X) (Onggo et al., 2005). We report herein the synthesis and crystal structure of the title compound, (I).

In the title compound (Fig. 1), the CoII atom is four-coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral geometry by two N atoms from a chelating 6-mbipy ligand and two terminal Br atoms (Table 1). In the crystal, intermolecular C—H···Br hydrogen bonds and ππ contacts (Table 2, Fig. 2) between the pyridine rings, Cg2···Cg3i [symmetry code: (i) 1-x, 1-y, -z, Cg2 and Cg3 are the centroids of the rings N1/C2–C6 and N2/C7–C11, respectively], with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.761 (7) Å, stabilize the structure.

Experimental top

For the preparation of the title compound, a solution of 6-mbipy (0.28 g, 0.26 ml, 1.65 mmol) in acetonitrile (10 ml) was added to a solution of CoBr2 (0.36 g, 1.65 mmol) in acetonitrile (10 ml) and the resulting blue solution was stirred for 20 min at 313 K. This solution was left to evaporate slowly at room temperature. After one week, blue needle crystals of the title compound were isolated (yield: 0.47 g, 73.2%).

Refinement top

All H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined as riding atoms, with C—H = 0.93 (CH) and 0.96 (CH3) Å and with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C). The highest residual electron density was found 0.96 Å from Br1 the deepest hole 0.79 Å from Br1.

Special details top

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.
