Abstract

"The objective of this study was to develop a chemical model for metal ion complex formation by a macroligand system with multi-metal binding sites using 2,2'-biimidazole as the starting molecule of the ligand system. Prior studies in this laboratory guided the selection of diesters and hydroxyethyl derivatives of 2,2'-biimidazole as model monomers. In addition, metal ion complexation studies with 2,2'-biimidazole derivatives were conducted. As a result, crystal structures of 1,1'-di(methylpropionato)-2,2-biimidazole, 2,2'-bis(1H-imidazolium) dinitrate and silver 2,2'-bis(1H-imidazolium) trinitrate, were reported. The crystal structures indicated a dependence upon the binding ability of the protonated 2,2'-biimidazole and counter ions. transesterification of the diesters and diols revealed oligomeric formation in dimers to pentamers. Upon mixing the esters and oligomers with metal salts, associated metal salts formed"--Abstract, page iii.
