Treatment of 5-sulfosalicylic acid (H3Ssal) with BiPh3 results in the formation of the first dianionic carboxylate–sulfonate bismuth complex, [PhBi(HSsal)H2O]∞1a, and its ethanol analogue [PhBi(HSsal)EtOH]∞1b (space groupP21/c), while Bi(OAc)3 gives the mixed monoanionic and dianionic complex, {[Bi(HSsal)(H2Ssal)(H2O)3]2·2H2O}∞2 (space groupP[1 with combining macron]). The three complexes are all polymeric in the solid state as determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction, with extended frameworks constructed from dimeric [Bi(HSsal)]2, 1a and 1b, or from [Bi(HSsal)(H2Ssal)]2 units, 2. The heteroleptic bismuth complexes 1a and 2 display remarkable aqueous solubility, 10 and 2.5 mg ml−1 respectively, resulting in a clear solution of pH 1.5. In contrast, 1b is essentially insoluble in aqueous environments. All three complexes show significant activity against the bacterium Helicobacter pylori of <6.25 µg ml−1.
