A dimeric [Cu(μ-4-HOMP)(4-HOMP)(NCS)2]2 (1) and three discrete monomeric complexes [Ni(3-HOMP)2(NCS)2(H2O)2] (2), [Co(3-HOMP)3(N3)3]·H2O (3) and [Zn(4-HOMP)2(NCS)2] (4), (3-HOMP = 3-hydroxymethylpyridine, 4-HOMP = 4-hydroxymethylpyridine) have been isolated and structurally characterized by IR, UV–Vis spectroscopy, XRPD, single crystal X-ray crystallography and Hirshfeld surface analysis as well as thermogravimetric analyses for complexes 1, 2 and 4. In dimeric complex 1 each penta-coordinated Cu2+ center is bridged through N,O-4-HOMP ligands, whereas metal ions in 2 and 3 are located in distorted octahedral geometry with mer-configuration in the azido complex 3. Distorted tetrahedral geometry is observed around Zn2+ in complex 4. The variable temperature magnetic susceptibility measurements of 1 showed very weak antiferromagnetic interaction.
