One dimensional polymer of the types MxM1 1-x(CA)(where, MCu( II),M1=Fe(II),CA(chloranilic acid) = 3,6-dichloro-2,5-dihydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone and (X= 0;0.25;0.50;0.75 and1) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses,magnetic susceptibility, IR, UV-visible, and X-ray powder diffractional studies. The powder XRD studies confirm the complexes are crystalline in nature havingmonoclinic crystal geometry. The solid state variable temperature electrical conductance measurement exhibits semiconductor behavior. The entire compounds exhibit compressed pellet room temperature conductivity in the 9.23X10-8 to X 3.76 X 10-7 S/cm, respectively.
