Abstract

Hydrothermal reactions of d(10) metal ions (Cd(2+) and Zn(2+)) with 1,4-naphthalenedicarboxylate acid (1,4-H2NDC) and 4,4'-dipyridyl N,N'-dioxide (4,4'-dpdo) form two three-dimensional grid-like coordination polymers [Cd2(1,4-NDC)2(4,4'-dpdo)]·H2O 1 and [Zn4(μ3-OH)2(1,4-NDC)3(H2O)2](4,4'-dpdo)·2H2O 2. Both coordination polymers were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy, XRPD, thermogravimetric and elemental analyses. Polymer 1 exhibits rare alternating arranged 1,4-NDC(2)(-) and 4,4'-dpdo spacers between adjacent 1D zigzag chains containing Cd-octahedral coordination geometries. Polymer 2 is constructed from infrequent chair-like [Zn4(μ3-OH)2](6+) inorganic SBUs with four- and six-coordination geometries and only 1,4-NDC(2)(-) as "single-bridge" and "double-bridges" to form a 3D framework. Both polymers give strong luminescent emissions in the solid state at room temperature.
