Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two novel Ba-based coordination polymers bridged by a Nidithiooxalato (dto) complex, (TBA)2[Ba{Ni(dto)2}2] (1, TBA = tetra-n-butylammonium) and (TPP)2[Ba{Ni(dto)2}2(H2O)] (2, TPP = tetraphenylphosphonium) were prepared. The structure of 1 consisted of two identical diamond-shaped coordination polymers and a 2-fold interpenetrated framework. On the other hand, the crystal structure of 2 showed a 2D square-shaped coordination polymer stacked along the [101] direction. These findings suggest that two different molecular structures were formed depending on the size of the cation.
