    • Abstract


      A new coordination polymer namely [[Ca6(H-gly)12(H2O)18]Cl12·6H2O]$_n$ (1) (H-gly = glycine) has been isolated from the calcium chloride-glycine-water system and structurally characterized. Each Ca(II) in 1 is eight-coordinated and is bonded to eight oxygen atoms three of which are from terminal water molecules and five oxygen atoms from four symmetry related zwitterionic glycine ligands. The H-gly ligands exhibit two different binding modes viz. a monodentate carboxylate ligation and a $\mu_3$-tetradentate bridging carboxylate binding mode, which results in the formation of a one-dimensional coordination polymer. In the infinite chain the Ca(II) atoms are organized in a zigzag fashion. A comparative study reveals a rich and diverse structural chemistry of calcium halide-glycine compounds.
