Self-assembly of long V-shaped ligands and d10 metal salts in the presence of a linear bidentate ligand affords two unprecedented self-penetrating coordination networks {[Zn4(bptc)2(bpy)4].(C5H3N).4H2O}n (1) and {[Cd2(sdba)2(bpy)(H2O)2].2H2O}n (2) (bptc = 3,3',4,4'-benzophenonetetracarboxylate, sdba = 4,4'-sulfonyldibenzoate, bpy = 4,4'-bipyridine).
