Original Paper


The complexes, Ba (HQS) (H2O)4 (HQS = 8-hydroxyquinoline-5-sulfonic acid) (1) and Ag (HIQS) (H2O) (Ferron = 7-iodo-8-hydroxyquinoline-5-sulfonic acid) (2) have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis and spectroscopic studies. In compound 1, Ba2+ ion has a nine-coordinate monocapped antiprismatic geometry. In compound 2, Ag+ has distorted tetrahedral coordination and Ag···I interactions generate the supramolecular architectures. The complexes have been characterized by FT-IR and UV–Visible measurements. In both the structures, the inversion-related organic ligands are stacked over one another leading to three-dimensional networks.
