Abstract:The title compound, [Zn(NO3)2(C24H16N2)2], is a twofold axially symmetric coordination compound. Given that the Zn—O interactions [2.4926 (15) and 2.6673 (15) Å] can be considered as weakly bonding and the nitrate ions share the same C
2 axis of the Zn(dpp)2 fragment (dpp is 4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline), these anions belong to the coordination sphere of Zn2+, leading to a complex with an overall coordination number of 8 for the metal ion.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
