Complexes [VO(dipic) (H2O)2]Â·2H2O (1), [H2Met][V2O4(dipic)2] (2) and [HGly][VO2(dipic)] (3), where H2dipic = 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid, Met = Metformin (N,N-dimethylbiguanide) and Gly = glycine, were synthesized. The three complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, FTIR,1H and13C NMR, and UVâVis spectroscopy. Solid-state structures of (2) and (3) were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The coordination geometry around the vanadium atoms in 2 is octahedral, while the coordination geometry in 3 is between trigonal bipyramidal and squared pyramidal. In the binuclear complex 2 and mononuclear complex 3, metformin and glycine are diprotonated and monoprotonated respectively, and act as a counter ion. The redox behavior of the complexes was also investigated by cyclic voltammetry.
