Research field: 01.04.18 – Crystallography and crystal physics. The purpose of the dissertation: the synthesis and X-ray investigation of novel coordination compounds with adsorptive and luminescent properties. Objectives: to design new mixed-ligand coordination compounds based on Cu(II) dioximates and Zn(II) and Cd(II) dioximes; to identify the differences in coordination modes of α-dioximes to d9 Cu(II) cation and d10 Zn(II) and Cd(II) cations in the presence of 4,4'-dipyridyl bridging type ligands; to study factors responsible for the dimensionality of new coordination compounds and their application for diversification of objects of the research; to evaluate by theoretical and experimental methods the possibilities to use the new complexes as adsorption materials; to examine luminescent properties of obtained compounds in order to find new photosensitive materials.
Scientific novelty: For the first time the binuclear Cu(II) dioximates mediated by dipyridine type ligands and mono-, bi- and polynuclear Zn(II) and Cd(II) dioximes were synthesized and their crystal structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray method. It has been shown that the coordination of bulky dioxime molecule to the metal center results in the loosely packed crystals, which are characterised by the presence of intermolecular cavities where the molecules of „guest” type can be enclathrated. For the first time the investigation of the luminescent properties of such type compounds has been carried out.
Important scientific problem solved: For the first time have been synthesized and investigated zero-dimensional and polymeric compounds of Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II) on the base of α-dioximes with “wheel-and-axle” topology, that are characterized by the presence of intermolecular cavities and can encapsulate the „guest” molecules.
Theoretical significance:The results of this study make a significant contribution to the chemistry of coordination compounds. It has been demonstrated that the bulky and stable metal-oxime ”building block” is utilized successfully in the design of new coordination polymers with useful properties.
Practical significance: Methods of synthesis of Cu(II) dioximates and Zn(II) and Cd(II) dioximes; fluorescent emission points to the possibility of using these compounds as photosensitive materials.
