AbstractThe new complex, [Co2(adc)2(py)4(H2O)}n 1(adc=1,3-adamantanedicarboxylate, py = pyridine), has been hydrothermally synthesized as polymeric solid, and characterized by X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, IR spectra and thermogravimetric analysis. Complex 1 crystallizes in monoclinic, space group C2/c with a = 18.932(4), b = 19.779(4), c = 12.352(3) Å, β = 112.03(3)º, V = 4288(2) Å3, Z = 4, GOF = 0.998, R = 0.0518 and wR = 0.1074. X-ray single-crystal analysis reveals that 1 presents a 3D simple parallel rod-like supramolecular array constructed by 1D tape-like polymeric motif through aromatic π-π stacking interaction. Electrochemical investigation shows that 1exhibits appreciable electrocatalytic activity for the reduction reaction of nitrite.
