The reaction of a lanthanide(III) nitrate (Ln = Pr, Nd) with the base 2, 2'-dipyridylamine (dpamH) afforded two very stable microcrystalline compounds. These compounds were characterized as complex salts with the general formula [Ln(NO3)6]Β·3[dpamH-H+]Β·H2O, where the dpamH ligand is not coordinated, but exists in its protonated form serving as counterion (dipyridylammonium cation), as it was revealed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies. Each one of the nitrate ions is coordinated, however, in a bidentate manner with the lanthanide(III) ion, which obtains coordination number twelve. All organic dpamH-H+ cations are arranged in two columns parallel to the a axis of the cell forming pairs of almost parallel cationic molecules at a distance of about 3.5 Γ…. Inside each pair the molecules interact by strong Ο€-Ο€ interactions. The water molecules, arranged between the inorganic anions [Ln(NO3)6]3-, bridge them by strong hydrogen bonds, involving the water proton and one nitrate oxygen. The lattice can be described as made from successive organic and inorganic alternating parallel columns interacting between them with strong hydrogen bonds. The thermal stability and decomposition mode of the two lanthanide compounds were studied by the simultaneous TG/DTG-DTA technique and compared with the starting hexahydrate lanthanide(III) salts and the dipyridylamine.
