Silver(I) Polymer of Tripodal Amine: Synthesis, Structure and Photoluminescence
- 152 Downloads
Starting from tripodal ligand tris-(methyl-imidazole) amine (1) the colourless complex tris-(methyl-imidazole)aminesilver(I)perchlorate (2) has been synthesized, characterized by IR, UV/Vis and 1HNMR spectroscopic studies and finally solid state structure has been established by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. A single crystal X-ray structure determination revealed the formation of coordination polymer. The crystal structure possesses weak d10–d10 ‘argentophilic’ interactions with Ag–Ag separation (3.348 Å). The weak luminance at 375 nm may be this Ag–Ag weak interaction. The molecule possesses weak H-bonding with C2 and C4H of imidazole with oxygen of ClO4.
