We studied the synthesis and characterization of polymeric coordination complexes of Co(II) and Ni(II) ions with pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylic acid and 1-vinylimidazole. The e lemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy, powder X-ray diffraction, magnetic susceptibility, thermal analysis and X-ray single crystal techniques were used in the characterization. The X-ray single crystal analysis suggests that the pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylato ligand acts as a bridging ligand through the oxygen atoms of the carboxylate groups and the nitrogen atoms on the pyrazine ring. The 1-vinylimidazole ligand behaves as a monodentate ligand via the ring nitrogen atom. Further, the H-2 adsorption studies were carried out at 75 K for various increasing pressures and the highest H-2 adsorption performances for Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes were estimated as 2.66 and 2.99 wt% at 87 bar. The theoretical calculations using the crystal data were also performed to determine the voids in the structure of Co(II) complex.
