The title complex, [Tl(C34H53O8)]n, forms a pseudo individual monomer complex, in which the anionic oxygen of carboxylate group serves to neutralise the charge of Tl+, the other five O centres of the first lasalocid anionic ligand (Lasa 1) and in which this ligand is pentadentate O-ligand and bonded to a second Tl centre by using phenyl-metal coordination. A second lasalocid ligand (Lasa 2) is also pentadentate O-ligand and bridges the first Tl centre within the polymer. The monomeric unit is stabilized by strong intramolecular aryl-Tl type-metal half sandwich bonding interactions. ©ARKAT USA, Inc.
