Structure and Properties of Coordination Compounds


[Ni(5,5′-dmbipy)2Cl2]·3H2O (1) complex was obtained from the reaction of NiCl2·6H2O with 5,5′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipyridine (5,5′-dmbipy) in a mixture of CH3OH/CH3CN. This complex was characterized by elemental analysis, IR, UV-Vis and luminescence spectroscopy, and its structure was determined by the single-crystal diffraction method. The Ni atom has a distorted octahedral coordination by four N atoms from two 5,5′-dmbipy ligands and two Cl anions.
