Abstract

The synthesis and structural characterization of 4`-tert-butyl-4,2`: 6`,4 ``-terpyridine (1) are presented, along with the first coordination polymers containing a 4,2`: 6`,4 ``-tpy ligand in which a non-aryl substituent is attached directly to the 4`-position. In [ZnI2(1)center dot 1,2-Cl2C6H4(n)], face-to-face pi-stacking between 1,2-Cl2C6H4 solvent molecules and 4,2`:6`,4 ``-tpy domains controls the assembly of the ZnI2( 1) n chains and this outweighs the steric effects of the Bu-t groups. The one-dimensional chains observed in [Zn-2(mu-OAc)(4)(1)(n)] and their packing in the solid state are closely related to those in [Zn-2(m-OAc)(4)L(n)] where L is 4`-phenyl-, 4`-(4-bromophenyl)- or 4`-(4-methylthiophenyl)-4,2`:6`,4 ``-terpyridine; the Bu-t group is accommodated in a similar sized cavity as each of the aryl substituents and in each polymer, the most important packing interactions are those between the 4,2`:6`,4 ``-tpy units. Reaction between 1 and Co(SCN)(2) results in the assembly of two-dimensional sheets containing octahedral trans-CoS2N4 nodes; tert-butyl groups protrude from both surfaces of the sheets, and a `ball-and-socket` assembly supported by CHbutyl center dot center dot center dot N-pyridine hydrogen bonds locks the sheets together.
