Modulating the hydration behaviour of calcium chloride by lactam complexation.

Perrin, Andrea and Musa, Osama M. and Steed, Jonathan W. (2016) 'Modulating the hydration behaviour of calcium chloride by lactam complexation.', Dalton transactions., 45 (30). pp. 12181-12187.


Complexation of calcium chloride with bis(lactam) ligand L1 allows the formation of both an unstable anhydrous complex, an aqua complex {[Ca2(μ-L1)2(H2O)9]Cl4]}n (1) and a related hydrate incorporating additional lattice water of crystallization {[Ca(μ-L1)(H2O)5]Cl2·H2O}n (2). Related mono(lactam) L2 does not form aqua complexes but the anhydrous complex {[CaCl2(μ-L2)2]}n (3), is highly deliquescent. An unusual ethanol solvate is also reported {[CaCl2(L2)(EtOH)]}n (4).
