Abstract:
(HL)2ZnBr4 and (HL)2ZnCl4 were prepared by the addition of HBr or HCl into a MeCN solution of Zn(II)L2, and their structures were determined by x-ray diffraction analysis. The x-ray crystallographiic data show super structures that have H bonds between the tetrahalozinc anions ([ZnX4]2-) and the protonated dipyrromethene cations.
