Polymeric bis(dimethyl-and diphenylglyoximato)-complexes of Fe(II) and Co(II) with pyrazine as a bridging ligand have been synthesized. The Co(II) complexes are para-magnetic with μ = 1.83 B.M., and surprisingly stable against oxidation. Bis (dimethyl-glyoximato)pyrazine-cobalt (II) crystallizes monoclinic in the space group C2/m with Z = 2. The crystal structure shows linear chains of alternating Co atoms and pyrazine ligands. Perpendicular to the chain, the Co atoms are coordinated in a square planar arrangement by two dimethylglyoximato ligands (Co-N= 189 pm), the local symmetry being C2h-The long Co-pyrazine distance of 224 pm is in agreement with the fact that the compound is a 19 electron complex. The Co complexes do not have conducting properties. The Fe(II) complexes possess the same structure but with stronger bonds in the chain. They show very low conductivity of approximately 10-10 cm -1 Ω-1 . The Mössbauer spectra of the Fe-complexes are reported.
