Inorg Chem. 2016 Dec 19;55(24):12904-12911. Epub 2016 Dec 7.A dinuclear complex [DyLClCH3OH)]2 (1) and a one-dimensional compound [DyL(HCOO)(CH3OH)]n (2) have been synthesized using an organic ligand of N'-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)picolinohydrazide (H2L). Complex 1 exhibits a symmetric dinuclear structure, in which the Dy3+ centers reside in a pentagonal-bipyramidal coordination environment. In 2, the dinuclear units of 1 are strung into chains by formate anions, in which Dy3+ ions are situated in an octa-coordinated, hula-hoop-like coordination geometry. Read More
