Abstract

Two classes of novel tetra-iron substituted sandwich-type arsenotungastates (ATs) with supporting lanthanide (Ln) pendants KNa2 [Ln(H2O)7][Fe4(H2O)10(B-β-AsW9O33)2]·21H2O [Ln = La(III) (1), Pr(III) (2), Nd(III) ()3, Sm(III) (4)] and [Ln(H2O)8]2[Fe4(H2O)8(l-thr)2(B-β-AsW9O33)2]·20H2O [Ln = La(III) (5), Pr(III) ()6, Nd(III) (7), Sm(III) (8), Eu(III) (9), Gd(III) (10), Tb(III) (11), Dy(III) (12), Er(III) (13)] (l-thr = l-threonine) have been synthesized by the hydrothermal reaction of the [As2W19O67(H2O)](14-) precursor with Fe(3+) cations and Ln(3+) cations in the presence of l-thr or l-leucine and l-alanine, and further characterized by elemental analyses, IR spectra and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Structural analyses indicate that 1-4 display the inorganic 2-D sheet architecture constructed from tetra-iron sandwiched AT [Fe4(H2O)10(B-β-AsW9O33)2](6-) fragments by bridging [Ln(H2O)7](3+) cations whereas the molecular structures of the isostructural 5-13 consist of an organic-inorganic hybrid tetra-iron substituted sandwich-type AT [Fe4(H2O)8(l-thr)2(B-β-AsW9O33)2](6-) fragment and two pendant [Ln(H2O)8](3+) cations. As far as we know, 1-4 represent the rare inorganic 2-D extended ATs based on transition-metal substituted sandwich-type polyoxometalate units and Ln linkers and 5-13 are the first Fe-Ln heterometallic ATs with amino acid ligands. The solid state photoluminescence (PL) measurements of 9 and 11 have been performed at room temperature. The PL emission of 9 is mainly derived from the characteristic (5)D0 → (7)F2 (J = 4-0) transitions of the Eu(III) cations whereas the PL behavior of 11 stems from the common contribution of the (5)D4 → (7)FJ (J = 5-3) transitions of the Tb(III) ions and oxygen-to-metal (O → W) charge-transfer transitions of AT segments. The thermogravimetric (TG) analyses of 1-4 and 6-12 have been investigated.
