A Rarely Seen Phenolato and Azido-Bridged Polymeric Cadmium(II) Complex Derived from 2-Bromo-6-[(2-isopropylaminoethylimino)methyl]phenol

Guo-Ping Cheng, Ling-Wei Xue, Cai-Xia Zhang


A rarely seen phenolato and azido-bridged polymeric cadmium(II) complex derived from the Schiff base ligand 2-bromo-6-[(2-isopropylaminoethylimino)methyl]phenol (HL) has been prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The Schiff base ligand coordinates to the Cd atom through the NNO donor set. The Cd atom is hexa-coordinated in an octahedral geometry. Adjacent two Cd atoms are bridged by two phenolato groups generating a dimer with Cd···Cd distance of 3.475(1) Å. The dimers are further linked via azido bridges forming 2D sheets parallel to the bc plane.
