Syntheses and room-temperature single-crystal X-ray structure determinations are recorded for some 1 : 1 adducts of lead(II) (pseudo-)halides with 1,10-phenanthroline (' phen ') and 2,2'-bipyridine (' bpy '). [( phen )PbX2](∞|∞), X = Cl , Br, I, have been refined in a common monoclinic C2/c setting, a ≈ 16.2, b ≈ 10.6, c ≈ 8.25 Ǻ, β 105°, Z = 4 f.u .; (conventional R on |F| 0.034, 0.046, 0.043 for No = 1694, 1626, 1387 independent, 'observed' (I > 3σ(I)) reflections respectively); [( bpy )PbI2](∞|∞) is isomorphous with similar cell dimensions (R 0.035 for No 1263), but, in its chloride counterpart, the symmetry is degraded to P21/c, a 15.336(5), b 9.476(5), c 8.191(3) Ǻ, β 92.81(3)°, Z = 4 (R 0.041 for No 2849). In the C2/c model the lead atoms are disposed on crystallographic 2 axes, as also are the associated N,N′- bidentate ligands, with the six-coordinate (cis-N2) Pb (μ-X)4 environments linked in an infinite …(μ-X)2Pb(μ-X)2Pb… one-dimensional polymeric chain by bridging halogen atoms. A somewhat similar, albeit more complex, array is found in [( bpy ) Pb (SCN)2](∞|∞), monoclinic, C2/c, a 17.655(6), b 12.027(3), c 6.794(1) Ǻ, β 107.03(2)°, Z = 4 (R 0.028 for No 1064), isomorphous with its previously studied phen analogue, in which a web of bridging SCN units is found. Stacks of successive strands up b have interleaving arrays of ligands and (pseudo-)halide atoms. The far-infrared spectrum of [( phen )PbCl2] shows four strong, broad bands at 152, 144, 116 and 96 cm-1 which are assigned as vPb-Cl. The corresponding bands in the bromo and iodo complexes are shifted to below 100 cm-1, revealing sharper bands at about 120 and 150 cm-1 which are assigned to vPb -N modes. The low wavenumbers of the vPb-X bands are indicative of weak Pb-X bonding. The far-infrared spectrum of the previously reported [( phen ) Pb (NCS)2] complex is similar to that of the chloro complex, consistent with its similarity in structure.
