A Simultaneous Reduction, Substitution and Self Assembly Reaction Under Hydrothermal Conditions Afforded the First Diiodopyridine Copper (I) Coordination Polymer


A simultaneous reduction of copper (II) to copper (I) by pyridinecarboxylate and the substitution of carboxylato groups by iodo nucleophiles in a self-assembly process under hydrothermal conditions afforded a new iodine-inclusion coordination polymer [CuI(C5H3NI2)·1/2I2] 1. The synthetic studies of the substitution process produced a new supramolecular compound [IC5H3NCOOH 2 and revealed that the catalytic properties of copper ions in redox and substitution reactions under hydrothermal conditions are attractive. Crystal data for [CuI(C5H3NI2)·1/2I2]:  triclinic, space group P1̄; cell dimensions a = 4.216(1) Å, b = 11.254(2) Å, c = 12.196(2) Å, α = 80.34(3)°, β = 88.44(3)°, γ = 83.10(3); V = 566.2(2) Å3, Z = 2. Crystal data for [IC5H3NCOOH]:  monoclinic, space group P21/c; cell dimensions a = 5.041(1) Å, b = 17.313(2) Å, c = 8.639(1) Å, β = 95.042(2)°; V = 751.02(13) Å3, Z = 4
