2.1.1. Design, synthesis, structural, and spectra characterize of Metal (II) Formate complexes [M(O2CH)2]•n(Solvent) (M =Mn, Cu)
Formate anion is the simplest carboxylate, compared with other carboxylate, it owns more excellent coordination ability. We used M(OAc)2
O (M=Mn, Cu) as a raw starting material, hydrothermal synthesis methods assisted by
DMF hydrolysis which produced the formyl were adopted to prepare metal(II) formates complexes, Mn(HCOO)3
(1) and Cu(HCOO)3
(2). The as-prepared products were characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, X-ray single-crystal, powder diffraction and thermogravimetric analysis. Structural analysis shows that
complex 1 is three-dimensional grid shapes, and complex 2 is a 1D chain structure.
