Design, syntheses and characterization of Cu(II) inorganic -organic hybrid coordination polymers based on beta-cyanodiketonates and telechelic nitrogenous spacers
The design and preparation of coordination networks assembled via discrete inorganic and organic molecular components has undergone rapid expansion in the field of supramolecular chemistry over the past decade. Interest in this area is driven by fascinating structural diversity and potential applicability of metal-based molecular architectures as functional materials. Although numerous efforts have been geared toward controlling network formation through judicious choice of metal ions, spacer ligands and reaction conditions, the design of self-assembled networks based on multifunctional metal β-diketonate templates remains a relatively unexplored avenue in coordination chemistry. This dissertation focuses on the design, syntheses and characterization of multifunctional β-cyanodiketones and their utility for constructing one- and two-dimensional inorganic-organic hybrid materials from prefabricated Cu(II) β-cyanodiketonate constituents. ^
