Helical zinc complexes of pyrazine–pyridine hybrids

Dias, S. I. G. ; Heirtzler, Fenton ; Bark, Thomas ; Labat, Gael ; Neels, Antonia

In: Polyhedron, 2004, vol. 23 (6), p. 1011-1017

The zinc(II) complexes 1aZnCl₂ and 1bZnCl₂ (1a: 2-(6',2''-bipyrid-2'-yl)-3-(2-pyridyl)pyrazine; 1b: 2-(6',2'-bipyrid-2'-yl)-5,6-dinitrilo-3-(2-pyridyl)pyrazine) were prepared by treatment of the ligands with ZnCl₂. The structures of both were investigated by X-ray crystallography and 1H NMR spectroscopy. Both complexes display proton deshielding phenomena that are attributed to a twisted...
