By employing two trans-dicyanocobolt(III) building blocks K[Co(bpb)(CN)2] (bpb2- = 1,2-bis(pyridine-2-carboxamido)benzenate), K[Co(bpmb)(CN)2] (bpmb2- = 1,2-bis(pyridine-2-carboxamido)-4-methyl-benzenate) and one 14-membered macrocycle Cu(II) compound as assembling segment, two cyanide-bridged CoIII-CuII complexes {{[Cu(cyclam)][Co(bpb)(CN)2]}ClO4}n·nCH3OH·nH2O (1) and {[Cu(cyclam)][Co(bpmb)(CN)2]2}·4H2O (2) (cyclam = 1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane) have been successfully prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy and X-ray structure determination. Single X-ray diffraction analysis shows that complex 1 can be structurally characterized as one-dimensional cationic single chain consisting of alternating units of [Cu(cyclam)]2+ and [Co(bpb)(CN)2]- with free ClO4- as balanced anion, while complex 2 presents cyanide-bridged neutral trinuclear bimetallic structure containing Co2Cu core, giving clear information that the substitute group on the cyanide precursor has obvious influence on the structure type of the target compound. Investigation over magnetic properties of complex 1 reveals the weak antiferromagnetic coupling between the neighboring Cu(II) ions through the diamagnetic cyanide building block.
