Five Mn(II) coordination polymers containing azide and carboxylate as simultaneous bridges have been derived from different imidazolium-carboxylate zwitterionic ligands: 1-methyl-3-(carboxylatomethyl)imidazolium (L(1)), 1,3-bis(carboxylatomethyl)imidazolium (L(2)), (S,S)-, (R,R)-, and (R,S)-1,3-bis(1-carboxylatoethyl)imidazolium (S,S-L(3), R,R-L(3) and R,S-L(3)). The compounds are formulated as [Mn(L(1))(N3)2] (1), [Mn(L(2))(N3)] (2), [Mn(R,R-L(3))(N3)]·0.5CH3OH (3-R), [Mn(S,S-L(3))(N3)]·0.5CH3OH (3-S), [Mn(R,S-L(3))(N3)] (4). In compound 1, the neutral monocarboxylate zwitterion ligand (L(1)) leads to uniform chains with bis(azide)(carboxylate) bridges. For compounds 2-4, the anionic dicarboxylate zwitterions L(2) and L(3) lead to (azide)bis(carboxylate) bridges, but the overall coordination networks are different. In 2 and 3-S (or 3-R), chains with the (azide)bis(carboxylate) bridges are connected by L(2) and S,S-L(3) (or R,R-L(3)), respectively, to give achiral and chiral 2D coordination networks with different connecting topologies. In compounds 4, which is derived from the mesomeric ligand R,S-L(3), linear trinuclear units with the (azide)bis(carboxylate) bridges are linked by μ-1,3 azides to give 2D layers, and the layers are pillared into a 3D framework by the 1,3-dimethyleneimidazolium tethers. Magnetic analyses suggested that compounds 1-3 behave as 1D antiferromagnetic systems, while 4 shows canted antiferromagnetism with weak ferromagnetic ordering below T(C) = 12.4 K.
