    • Abstract

       

      Some new coordination complexes of hydrazinium main group metal dipicolinate hydrates of formulae (N2H5)2M(dip)2.nH2O (where, M = Ca,Sr,BaorPb andn = 0, 2, 4 and 3 respectively and dip = dipicolinate), N2H5Bi(dip)2.3H2O and (N2H5)3Bi(dip)3.4H2O have been prepared and characterized by physico-chemical techniques. The infrared spectra of the complexes reveal the presence of tridentate dipicolinate dianions and non-coordinating hydrazinium cations. Conductance measurements show that the mono, di and trihydrazinium complexes behave as 1:1, 2:1 and 3 :1 electrolytes respectively, in aqueous solution. Thermal decomposition studies show that these compounds lose water followed by endothermic decomposition of hydrazine to give respective metal hydrogendipicolinate intermediates, which further decompose exothermically to the final product of either metal carbonates (Ca, Sr, Ba and Pb) or metal oxycarbonates (Bi). The coordination numbers around the metal ions differ from compound to compound. The various coordination numbers exhibited by these metals are six (Ca), seven (Ba), eight (Sr) and nine (Pb and Bi). In all the complexes the above coordination number is attained by tridentate dipicolinate dianions and water molecules. The X-ray diffraction patterns of these compounds differ from one another suggesting that they are not isomorphous.
