abstract

  • The hydrothermal reactions of CuCl2*2H2O, Na3VO4, 1,10-phenanthroline, and the appropriate organodiphosphonate ligand yield [Cu(phen)(VO)(O3PCH2PO3)(H2O)] (1), [[Cu(phen)]2(V2O5)(O3PCH2CH2PO3)] (2), [[Cu(phen)]2(V3O5)(O3PCH2CH2CH2PO3)2 (H2O)] (3), and [[Cu(phen)]2(V3O5)(O3PCH2PO3)2(H2O)] (4). Compounds 1-3 exhibit two-dimensional structures. The structures exhibit distinct vanadium building blocks: square pyramidal, mononuclear V(IV) sites in 1, a binuclear unit of corner-sharing V(V) tetrahedra in 2, and a trinuclear unit of corner-sharing V(V) square pyramids and a V(IV) octahedron in 3. The network structures of 1 and 2 are constructed from one-dimensional oxovanadium-diphosphonate chains linked by Cu(II) square pyramids into two-dimensional layers. In contrast, compound 3 exhibits a two-dimensional oxovanadium-organodiphosphonate network, with Cu(II) sites decorating the surfaces. Compound 4 is unique in exhibiting a framework structure, which may be described as a three-dimensional oxovanadium-organodiphosphonate substructure with [Cu(phen)]2+ subunits covalently attached to the surface of channels running parallel to the a-axis. The magnetic properties of 1-4 are also correlated to the structural characteristics. The magnetic behavior of 2 is thus dominated by antiferromagnetic interactions. The magnetic behavior of 1 and 4 is consistent with the presence of two distinct paramagnetic metal ions, Cu(II) and V(IV). In contrast, 3 does not exhibit ferrimagnetic behavior, but rather weak antiferromagnetic coupling.
