Abstract

Reaction of Cd(NO3)2 · 4H2O with ethyl-2-pyridinecarboxylate yields [Cd(NO3)2(C5H4NCOOEt) 2]. Elemental analyses, conductivity measurements, infrared, 1H and 13C{1H} NMR spectroscopies and single-crystal X-ray diffraction enabled us to characterise this complex. The crystal structure consists of monomeric units in which the cadmium atom is eight-coordinated. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
