The challenge to the chemistry of the alkaline earth phosphonate target compounds includes poor solubility of compounds, and poorly understood details on the control of the metal s coordination environment.
Hence, less is known on phosphonate based alkaline earth metal organic frameworks as compared to transition metal phosphonates.
Factors governing the challenges in obtaining crystalline, well-defined magnesium and calcium solids lie in the large metal diameters, the absence of energetically available d- orbital to direct metal geometry, as well as the overall weakness of the metal-ligand bonds.
A significant part of this project was concerned with the development of suitable reaction conditions to obtain X-ray quality crystals of the reaction products to allow for structural elucidation of the novel compounds.
Various methodologies to aid in crystal growth including hydrothermal methods and gel crystallization were employed. We have used phosphinate and phosphonate ligands with different number of phosphorus oxygen atoms as well as diphosphonates with different linker lengths to determine their effects on the overall structural features.
An interesting correlation is observed between the dimensionality of products and the increasing number of donor oxygen atoms in the ligands as we progress from phosphinic acid to the phosphorous acids. As an example, monophosphinate ligand only yielded one-dimensional 3 compounds, whereas the phosphonates crystallize as one and two-dimensional compounds, and the di- and triphosphonate based compounds display two or threedimensional geometries.
This thesis provides a selection of calcium and magnesium compounds with onedimensional geometry, as represented in a calcium phosphinate to novel two-dimensional sheets of magnesium and pillared calcium phosphonates.
The preparation of these novel compounds has led to the establishment of synthetic protocols that allow for the direct preparation of compounds with defined structural features.

I am especially grateful to them for allowing me to be part of this work. Thank you Karin, my boss and advisor, for the lengths you have gone to ensure that I succeeded in this graduate program.
You have been abundantly helpful. Your invaluable assistance, support and guidance are highly appreciated. You will forever remain very dear to me and my entire family.
I wish to express my gratitude to Professor Emeritus Marion Bickford, who gracefully accepted to chair my defense committee. To all members of the committee: I owe my deepest gratitude to Nancy Cantor, Vice Chancellor, and Nancy Totah, Chair of Graduate Studies, who were both instrumental in my gaining admission into Syracuse University with scholarship to pursue this graduate program.
It has been so beneficial in so many ways. Thanks to all the staff at the Chemistry Department of SU for your great support. I also appreciate the valuable contributions from members of the Ruhlandt group, with whom I interacted daily over the years. I appreciate the roles you all played in my learning process.
I am grateful to my undergraduate students Sarina and Seungmo for their contribution and input to this bone project.
Peter, thanks for the deep thoughts we have often shared over lunch, I will miss that. I am indebted to my parents, late Rev.
Bernice Quartey, who out of their scarcity found it imperative to invest in my education. Mama, thank you for being a good example and an encouragement to me all the time.
To my brother James and family in Ohio and my sister Rejoice in Ghana, thank you all for the much needed moral support anytime it became necessary.
I am also deeply grateful to my husband and friend, Apostle Bismark Barima Bampoh for believing in me and sharing in my academic vision. Darling, your preparedness, eagerness and willingness to see me off for further studies in America, in spite of our prevailing peculiar family situation in Ghana, comes to me as a huge sacrifice and that sets you apart as a great leader in your own class.
I am monumentally grateful. Together with your late brothers Enoch and Caleb, you have encouraged and tremendously inspired me to work hard and I feel blessed to have you.
To my dear daughters Cynthia and Rosemary, thanks for understanding and being there for me always. My gratitude to all my friends: Tracy Duke and family, Janis Bernard, Dr. Finally, I eulogize God for the opportunities, daily strength and insight granted to me each step of the way. I owe it all to Jesus my Lord and personal Savior.
