Functionalized 4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine ligands have been used to provide a divergent N,N′-donor set for the formation of coordination polymers containing {Zn2(µ-OAc)4} or {Mn3(µ-OAc)4(OAc)2} scaffolds. Single-stranded coordination polymers are produced from the reactions of 4′-(4-bromophenyl)-4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine (1) and 4′-(4-methylthiophenyl)-4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine (2) with Zn(OAc)2·2H2O. In [Zn2(1)(OAc)4]n and [Zn2(2)(OAc)4]n, the two outer nitrogen donors of the 4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine ligands, bind to the axial sites of {Zn2(µ-OAc)4} units to generate coordination polymer chains which are π-stacked so that the V-shaped ligand domains are interleaved. When Mn(OAc)2·4H2O is treated with 4′-(4-bromophenyl)-4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine, the triply stranded coordination polymer {[Mn3(1)3(OAc)6]·0.8MeOH·2.2H2O}n assembles in which the 4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine ligands span between {Mn3(µ-OAc)4(OAc)2} units. Efficient face-to-face π-interactions between pairs of pyridine rings or pairs of bromophenyl rings are the dominant packing forces. The magnetic properties in {[Mn3(1)3(OAc)6]·0.8MeOH·2.2H2O}n are dominated by the presence of a weak antiferromagnetic interaction between the central Mn(II) ion and the two lateral ones within the linear trimeric unit, leading to an S = 5/2 ground state.
