Polymeric lithium(I) diaquabarbiturate: Crystal structure
The lithium(I) catena-diaquabarbiturate complex [Li(H2O)2(HBA–O,O′)] n (I), where Н2ВА is barbituric acid, has been structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction (CIF file CCDC no. 1447689), and its thermal decomposition and IR spectrum have been studied. Crystals of complex I are monoclinic, a = 6.4306(7) Å, b = 16.720(1) Å, c = 7.1732(8) Å, β = 108.253(4)°, V = 732.5(1) Å3, space group P21/c, and Z = 4. One independent μ2-bridging HBA– ligand is coordinated to two Li(I) ions via the two oxygen atoms of C4(6)=O carbonyl groups. Each Li+ ion is linked with two μ2-HBA– ions and two terminal water molecules at tetrahedron vertices. μ2-HBA– ions link tetrahedra into a chain. The structure is stabilized by multiple hydrogen bonds and π–π-interaction between HBA–. The shift of ν(C=O) vibration bands in the IR spectrum of complex I in comparison with Н2ВА towards lower frequencies agrees with the coordination of HBA– via oxygen atoms. The dehydration of complex I occurs in two stages in the regions of 100–150 and 150–240°C.
