Zwitterionic and anionic polycarboxylates as coligands in uranyl ion complexes, and their influence on periodicity and topology

Abstract : The three zwitterionic di- and tricarboxylate ligands 1,1′-[(2,3,5,6-tetramethylbenzene-1,4-diyl)bis(methylene)]bis(pyridin-1-ium-4-carboxylate) (pL1), 1,1′-[(2,3,5,6-tetramethylbenzene-1,4-diyl)bis(methylene)]bis(pyridin-1-ium-3-carboxylate) (mL1), and 1,1′,1″-[(2,4,6-trimethylbenzene-1,3,5-triyl)tris(methylene)]tris(pyridin-1-ium-4-carboxylate) (L2) have been used as ligands to synthesize a series of 15 uranyl ion complexes involving various anionic coligands, in most cases polycarboxylates. [(UO2)2(pL1)2(cbtc)(H2O)2]·10H2O (1, cbtc4– = cis,trans,cis-1,2,3,4-cyclobutanetetracarboxylate) is a discrete, dinuclear ring-shaped complex with a central cbtc4– pillar. While [UO2(pL1)(NO3)2] (2), [UO2(pL1)(OAc)2] (3), and [UO2(pL1)(HCOO)2] (4) are simple chains, [(UO2)2(mL1)(1,3-pda)2] (5, 1,3-pda2– = 1,3-phenylenediacetate) is a daisy chain and [UO2(pL1)(pdda)]3·10H2O (6, pdda2– = 1,2-phenylenedioxydiacetate) is a double-stranded, ribbon-like chain. Both [UO2(pL1)(pht)]·5H2O (7, pht2– = phthalate) and [(UO2)3(mL1)(pht)2(OH)2] (8) crystallize as diperiodic networks with the sql topology, the latter involving hydroxo-bridged trinuclear nodes. [(UO2)2(pL1)(c/t-1,3-chdc)2] (9, c/t-1,3-chdc2– = cis/trans-1,3-cyclohexanedicarboxylate) and [UO2(pL1)(t-1,4-chdc)]·1.5H2O (10, t-1,4-chdc2– = trans-1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxylate) are also diperiodic, with the V2O5 and sql topologies, respectively. Both [(UO2)2(mL1)(c/t-1,4-chdc)2] (11) and [(UO2)2(pL1)(1,2-pda)2] (12, 1,2-pda2– = 1,2-phenylenediacetate) crystallize as diperiodic networks with hcb topology, and they display threefold parallel interpenetration. [HL2][(UO2)3(L2)(adc)3]Br (13, adc2– = 1,3-adamantanedicarboxylate) contains a very corrugated hcb network with two different kinds of cells, and the uncoordinated HL2+ molecule associates with the coordinated L2 to form a capsule containing the bromide anion. [(UO2)2(pL1)(kpim)2] (14, kpim2– = 4-ketopimelate) is a three-periodic framework with pL1 molecules pillaring fes diperiodic subunits, whereas [(UO2)2(L2)2(t-1,4-chdc)](NO3)1.7Br0.3·6H2O (15), the only cationic complex in the series, is a triperiodic framework with dmc topology and t-1,4-chdc2– anions pillaring fes diperiodic subunits. Solid-state emission spectra and photoluminescence quantum yields are reported for all complexes.
