Di­aqua­bis­(2-ethyl-5-methyl­imidazole-4-sulfonato-[kappa]2N3,O)nickel(II) dihydrate

A. P. Purdy and R. J. Butcher

Abstract top

In the title complex, [Ni(C6H9N2O3S)2(H2O)2]·2H2O, the NiII atom lies on an inversion center and is chelated by N and O atoms of two symmetry-equivalent imidazole­sulfonate ligands in the basal plane, and two water O atoms in axial positions in an overall octa­hedral configuration. The crystal structure displays O-H...O and N-H...O hydrogen bonds, which connect the components into an extended three-dimensional network.

Comment top

The Ni atom lies on an inversion center and is chelated by N1 and O1 of the 2 symmetry equivalent imidazolesulfonate ligands in a plane, and 2 axial water molecules coordinated in an overall octahedral configuration. All of the Ni—O bond lengths (2.083 (2), 2.094 (2) Å) are about the same, and are in the normal range for octahedral coordinated Ni (2.05–2.12 Å). The largest deviation from the 90 ° angles of the octahedron is N1—Ni—O1, a result of the sulfonate group being attached to the imidazole ring. Two additional uncoordinated water molecules are present, but do not lie on any symmetry elements. There are no links other than hydrogen bonds between molecules, in contrast to the analogous unsolvated Cu(II) derivative (Purdy & Butcher, 2011). Hydrogen bonding links all the water molecules and N2, O2, and O3 into an extended structure in all three dimensions.

A small number of structurally characterized imidazole sulfonates are known, see: Kuhn et al. (2001, 2002); Chidambaram et al. (1988). The 2-ethyl-4-methyl-5-sulfonate ligand is described by Purdy et al. (2007) and Purdy & Butcher (2011).

Experimental top

A solution of the potassium salt of the 2-ethyl-4-methyl-imidazole-5-sulfonic acid was prepared by combining 1 g (5.25 mmol) of the free acid with 1.5 equivalents of KOH solution, and diluting the solution to 1M based on K+. (All solutions were made with distilled water.) Two test reactions were done in vials with 0.5 M solutions of Ni(BF4)2·6H2O and MnSO4·H2O, a 0.2 ml metered pipet was used for the additions, and each vial contained one addition of all three solutions. After 1 month, one vial were heated to a boil and allowed to cool and the other remained at room temperature. After one year, large blue crystals of the title compound grew in the solution that was not heated.

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.
