Abstract Dinuclear copper(II) complex [­ Cu2(L)2(μ2-1,1-N3)2(N3)2] (1) with double μ1,1-azido bridges and polynuclear nickel(II) complex [Ni(L)(μ2-1,1-N3)(μ2-1,3-N3)]n (2) with alternate double μ1,1-azido and μ1,3-azido bridges [L = 1-amino-2-(dimethylamino) ethane, N−3  = azide ion] have been synthesized and were characterized by physicochemical and spectroscopic methods. X-ray structural analysis revealed that each Cu(II) center of 1 adopts a distorted square-pyramidal geometry with a C ­ uN5 chromophore ligated through two N atoms of L, two N atoms of double bridging (μ1,1-N3), and one N atom of terminal azide ion. On the other hand, each Ni(II) center around the asymmetric unit of 2 adopts a distorted octahedral geometry with a ­NiN6 chromophore ligated through two N atoms of L, two N atoms of double μ1,1-N3, and two N atoms of double μ1,3-N3 bridges. The adjacent nickel centers are connected to alternate double μ1,1-N3 and double μ1,3-N3 bridges, affording a onedimensional (1D) polymeric chain structure. Temperature-dependent magnetic susceptibility measurements evidenced a dominant antiferromagnetic interaction between the metal centers of both complexes 1 and 2.

Introduction The preparation of coordination polymers (CPs) [1] and metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) [2] has been a focus in the research community due to their unique features and wide-ranging applications [3–6]. These properties can obtained by appropriate choices of metal ions, ligands, and bridging moieties. One-pot synthesis [7] of the required building blocks is one of the efficient strategies to design such topologies based on strong metal–ligand covalent interactions [8] and multiple weak noncovalent interactions such as hydrogen bonds [9].

different nuclearities and versatile pseudohalide bridges have attracted great interest due to their interesting structure and catalytic and magnetic properties [10–15] and as models for the active sites of biomolecules [16]. Symmetrical and unsymmetrical 1,2-diamine ligands [17] are useful blocks to obtain coordination polymers with diverse dimensionalities. Homoatomic azide ions [18–25] are mostly employed because of their bridging versatility, yielding coordination compounds with a wide range of structural properties and fun
