    • Abstract


      We describe synthesis and solid state structural description of uranyl complexes of carboxylate functionalized adenine and uracil derivatives. The metal coordination through carboxylate pendant leads to the formation of dimeric assemblies, whereas the directional nature of hydrogen bonding interaction supported by nucleobases and aqua ligands, result in the generation of complex 3-D architectures containing embedded nucleobase ribbons.
