Abstract

The coordination polymer formed by the addition of zinc(II)chloride to 4′-(4‴-octyloxyphenyl)-4,2′-6′,4″- terpyridine (readily prepared using green chemistry principles) has been structurally authenticated using single crystal X-ray diffraction and microanalysis techniques. The polymeric network adopts a layered helical zigzag arrangement about a distorted tetrahedral Zn(II) centre, forming channels of inter-digitated alkyl chains.
