Syntheses, structures, and photoluminescence of a novel class of d10 metal complexes constructed from pyridine-3,4-dicarboxylic acid with different coordination architectures.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Two novel d(10) metal coordination polymers [Zn(PDB)](n)() (1) and [Cd(3)(PDB)(2)(OH)(2)(H(2)O)(2)](n)() (2) (H(2)PDB = pyridine-3,4-dicarboxylic acid) have been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, TG analysis, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Crystal data for 1: C(7)H(3)NO(4)Zn, orthorhombic Pna2(1), a = 8.423(17) A, b = 6.574(13) A, c = 12.899(3) A, Z = 4. Crystal data for 2: C(14)H(12)N(2)O(12)Cd(3), monoclinic C2/c, a= 20.130(4) A, b = 6.692(13) A, c = 13.081(3) A, beta = 102.78(3) degrees, Z = 4. Both compounds exhibit novel three-dimensional frameworks. Compound 1 not only possesses a one-dimensional rectangular channel but also contains infinite double-stranded helical chains. Compound 2 has two different types of channels, one being built up from pyridine rings and [CdO(5)N] and [CdO(6)] building units and the other being constructed from pyridine rings and [CdO(5)N] building units. Furthermore, both compounds show strong photoluminescence properties at room temperature.
