Title: Structural diversity in Ni II cluster chemistry: Ni 5, Ni 6, and {NiNa 2} n complexes bearing the Schiff-base ligand N-naphthalidene-2-amino-5-chlorobenzoic acid

Abstract

The employment of the fluorescent bridging and chelating ligand N-naphthalidene-2-amino-5-chlorobenzoic acid (nacbH 2) in Ni II cluster chemistry has led to a series of pentanuclear and hexanuclear compounds with different structural motifs, magnetic and optical properties, as well as an interesting 1-D coordination polymer. Synthetic parameters such as the inorganic anion present in the NiX 2 starting materials (X = ClO 4 - or Cl -), the reaction solvent and the nature of the organic base employed for the deprotonation of nacbH 2 were also proved to be structure-directing components. Undoubtedly, the reported results demonstrate the rich coordination chemistry of nacbH 2 in the presence of Ni II metal ions and the ability of this chelate to adopt a variety of different modes, thus fostering the formation of high-nuclearity molecules with many physical properties.
