The substitution reactions of M(CH3CH2CO2)2 and Htza afford the crystalline precipitates of [Cd(tza)2] (1), [Mn(tza)2] (2), [Co(tza)2] (3), and β-[Zn(tza)2] (5). The recrystallization of 5 leads to the formation of α-[Zn(tza)2] (4). X-ray powder diffraction of 15 reveal that 1, 2, 3, and 5 are allomers, but 4 and 5 are isomers, revealing the unprecedented structural transformation during the process of recrystallization. Compounds 14 have been characterized by X-ray single-crystal crystallography, IR, and magnetism analysis. Structural analyses and comparison of 14 detail the structural evolution of from β-[Zn(tza)2] (5) to α-[Zn(tza)2] (4) and possible driving force has been proposed. The interactions between the MnII ions of 2 have been observed as weakly antiferromagnetic.
