Original Article

A new rubidium complex, rubidium diphenylacetate diphenylacetic acid has been synthesised and characterised by single-crystal X-ray diffraction: triclinic, P\(\bar{1}\) with a=7.437(3) Å, b=12.377(4) Å, c=14.384(3) Å, α=107.08(2)°, β=103.67(2)°, γ=96.95(3)°, Mr=508.93, V=1203.6(6) Å3, Z=2. The diphenylacetic molecules bridge the metallic ions forming an infinite ladder structure. Two strong hydrogen bonds link the organic moieties.

KEY WORDS

Ladder structure hydrogen bonds flexible molecule diphenylacetic acid rubidium complex.
