IR spectra presented in Figure 2(b) show that when acetate ions were replaced by n-HCn ions, the peaks due to C=O vibrations of acetate ions in ZC-Ac ([v.sub.asym] = 1563 [cm.sup.-1] and [v.sub.sym] = 1410 [cm.sup.-1]) [21] were replaced by a series of peaks (1637-1642 [cm.sup.-1], C=C; 1540-1551 [cm.sup.-1], [v.sub.asym] C=O; and 1399-1428 [cm.sup.-1], [v.sub.sym] C=O).
Nitrate salts and acetate ions of Cu (II), Co (II) and Zn (II) were employed.
