Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Using similar synthesis conditions and a flexible ligand, 1,2-bis(1,2,4-triazole-1-yl)ethane (L), we isolated novel right-handed helical infinite chain [Zn(L)(Cl)2] (1), two-dimensional (2D) coordination polymers [M(L)2(H2O)2]·(NO3)2 [M = Zn (2), Cd (3)], and a one-dimensional (1D) double-bridged complex [Cd(L)2(H2O)2]·(ClO4)2(H2O)2 (4), where anions could tune the self-assemblies to form different supramolecular and coordination networks. Compound 1 is the first infinite helix in triazole compounds, where the supramolecular helical chain and the coordination chain form a unique double helical structure. Nitrate and perchlorate anions induced different supramolecular structures, which lead to the first case of the self-assembled CdN4O2 polyhedra from 2D to 1D coordination polymers for 3 and 4, respectively.
