Cobalt(III) complexes with N-(aminoalkyl)salicylamide dianions, Ln 2- (n = 14), have been prepared and their molecular and crystal structures have been determined. The geometric (mer- or fac-) selectivity of [Co(Ln)2]- complexes was dependent on the number of the amineamidato chelate ring member. Intermolecular homochiral hydrogen-bonds and solvatochromic behavior of the complexes were also observed.
