A novel oxo-centered trinuclear mixed-metal carboxylate complex with unsaturated bridging ligands [Fe2Cr(µ3-O)(C3H3O2)6(H2O)3]·NO3·4H2O has been synthesized and characterized by means of Elemental analyses, Infrared spectroscopy and Crystal structure analysis. The compound crystallizes isotypically in the monoclinic space group type P21/c. In the compound, each M(III) cation is coordinated by six O atoms from four unsaturated carboxylate groups as bridging ligands, one water molecule as the terminal ligand, and a µ3-oxygen atom in the center of an equilateral triangle. The infrared spectra show resolved bands arising from νasym(COO) and νsym(COO) vibration of bridging carboxylate ligands along with those of νasym(M2M′O) vibration in the complex. The difference between symmetrical and asymmetrical (COO) ligands indicate that the acrylate bridge is present in the structure of complex. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
