In this HOT Article, two new phenyl-bridged pseudopeptidic ligands have been prepared and structurally characterised. The nature of the ligands’ substituents play an important role in the nature of the solid state structure yielding either hydrogen bonded linked sheets of molecules or infinite hydrogen bonded networks. To investigate this further, these ligands were reacted with a range of zinc(II) salts with the aim of synthesising coordination polymers and networks; the role of anions in determining the final structure was explored.
