The infinite one-dimensional chain polymer catena-poly[[bis[-1,1′-ethane-1,2-diylbis(1,2,4-triazole)-2N4:N4′]bis[azidozinc(II)]]-di--azido-4N1:N1]
Abstract:In the crystal structure of the title complex, [Zn(N3)2(C6H8N6)]n or [Zn(N3)2(bte)]n, where bte is -1,2-bis(1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)ethane, each Zn atom is pentacoordinated in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination environment involving two N atoms from two bte ligands and three N atoms from three azide ligands. The Zn atoms are bridged by -1,1-azide groups and bte ligands around a centre of inversion, forming an infinite one-dimensional chain containing both four-membered Zn(-1,1-N3)2Zn and 18-membered Zn(gauche-bte)2Zn rings.
