Reaction of Co(NO(3))(2)·6H(2)O with H(2)L [H(2)L = pyridine-4-(phenyl-3',5'-dicarboxylic acid)] under different reaction conditions gives three closely-related metal-organic framework polymers, {[Co(2)(L)(2)(DMF)]·n(solv)}(∞) (1), {[Co(L)]·2DMF}(∞) (2) and {[Co(3)(L)(3)(DMF)(0.5)(H(2)O)(1.5)]·n(solv)}(∞) (3). Variation in reaction conditions thus has a decisive impact on the materials isolated, producing frameworks based upon either binuclear (1, 2) or trinuclear (3) cobalt cluster nodes… CONTINUE READING
