Abstract top

In the molecule of the title compound, [Ni(C19H20N2O4)(H2O)2], the central NiII ion lies on a mirror plane and is surrounded by an N2O4 coordination set in the form of a distorted octahedron defined by the O atoms of two water molecules and by two phenolic O and two imine N atoms of the tetradentate Schiff base ligand. In the crystal, O-H...O hydrogen bonds between the water molecules and the phenolic and methoxy O atoms of neighbouring molecules lead to the formation of rods propagating parallel to [100].

Comment top

In the title compound, [Ni(C19H20N2O4)(H2O)2], the Ni(II) ion has site symmetry m and exhibits a distorted octahedral coordination environment defined by two water molecules and the tetradentate ligand, 6,6'-(1E,1'E)-(propane-1,3-diylbis(azan-1-yl-1-ylidene)bis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene)bis(2-methoxyphenol) (L) that coordinates via two phenolic O and two imine N atoms (Fig. 1). The bond angles around the Ni(II) ion are slightly distorted from those of a regular octahedron and range from 85.57 (7)° to 175.62 (8)°. The two Owater molecules lie at the trans position of the octahedron. The cis Ni—Ophenolic bond lengths [2.0131 (13) Å] is considerably smaller than the trans Ni—Owater bond lengths [2.113 (2) and 2.1048 (19) Å] (Table 1). In the molecule, the dihedral angle between the (C1—C7, N1) plane and its symmetry-related counterpart (C1A—C7A, N1A) is 27.58 (7)° [A) x, 1/2 - y, z].

The resulting coordination geometry around the metal cation is comparable to that of complexes with similar Schiff-bases. See, for example: Thakurta et al. (2009a,b,2010a,b).

In the crystal structure of the title comound, intermolecular O—H···O hydrogen bonds between water molecules as donor groups and phenolic O and methoxy O atoms of neighbouring molecules as acceptor groups are observed (Table 2). The hydrogen bonding interactions lead to the formation of rods propagating parallel to [100] (Fig. 2).

Experimental top

The tetradentate Schiff base precursor was prepared according to the literature procedure (Sen et al., 2006). To a hot methanolic solution (20 ml) of Ni(CH3COO)2.4H2O (0.248 g, 1.0 mmol), the ligand (1.0 mmol) was added, which produced immediately an intensely brown solution. The mixture was then kept at room temperature. After slow evaporation of the brown solution, dark chocolate-brown single crystals with a rectangular form were separated out in 5 days. The crystals were filtered off and washed with water and dried in air.

Refinement top

Carbon-bound H-atoms were placed in calculated positions (C—H 0.93 to 0.97 Å) and were included in the refinement in the riding model approximation. The H atoms of the water molecules were located in a difference map and were refined with an O—H distances restraint of 0.85 (1) Å.

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.
