Chiral metal-organic coordination polymers [Co2(sacch) 2]·1/2H2O·CH3OH (1), [Cu(sacch)(H2O)2]·3H2O (2), and [Mg(H2O)3(sacch)] (3) (H2sacch is d-saccharic acid) were synthesized from aqueous or water-methanol solutions of potassium hydrogen saccharate and a salt of the corresponding metal. The compositions and structures of the resulting compounds were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and confirmed by X-ray powder diffraction, IR spectroscopy, thermogravimetry, and elemental analysis.
