The syntheses and crystal structures of transitional metal complexes of three substituted polypyridine ligands[4′-phenyl-2, 2′ : 6′, 2″-terpyridine (L1), 4′, 4″-diphenyl-2, 2′ : 6′, 2″ : 6″, 2-quaterpyridine (L2) and 4′, 4‴-diphenyl-2, 2′ : 6′, 2″ : 6″, 2″ : 6‴, 2″-quenquepyridine (L3)] are reported in this work. Comparison of the structures of these complexes shows that the central metal ion has an inducing effect on the formation of the configuration of complexes.
