Crystal structure of bis(pyridine-4-carbothioamide-κN1)bis(thiocyanato-κN)cobalt(II) methanol monosolvate
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Co(NCS)2(C6H6NS)4]·CH3OH, consists of one cobalt(II) cation, two thiocyanate anions, four pyridine-4-carbothioamide ligands and one methanol molecule that are located in general positions. The CoII cations are coordinated by two terminal N-bonding thiocyanate anions and four N-bonding pyridine-4-carbothioamide ligands, resulting in discrete and slightly distorted octahedral complexes. These complexes are linked into a three-dimensional network via intermolecular N—H...S hydrogen bonding between the amino H atoms and the thiocyanate and pyridine-4-carbothioamide S atoms. From this arrangement, channels are formed in which the methanol solvate molecules are embedded and linked to the host structure by intermolecular O—H...S and N—H...O hydrogen bonding.
