Carbon monoxide releasing molecules (CORMs) are investigated widely in synthetic and medicinal chemistry owing to the potential therapeutic applications of the CO gas. Organometallic carbonyl complexes are best suited to play the role of CO carriers as they allow the exogenous release of CO under controlled conditions, and the toxicity of the gas can be overcome. With the long-term goal of...

A 3-D metal-organic coordination polymer based on pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylic acid (pzdcH₂) formulated as {[Mn(pzdc)(H₂O)₂] · 2H₂O}n (1), was obtained by the treatment of MnCl₂ · 6H₂O with pzdcH₂, 8-hydroxy quinoline (8-HQ), and 2-amino-4-methyl pyridine (ampy). In this study, we describe the synthesis, elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, TG analysis, and...
