Four novel ZnII coordination polymers, [Zn(btc)0.5(H2O)]n (1), {[Zn(btc)0.5(4,4‘-bpy)0.5(H2O)]·1.5H2O}n (2), {[Zn2(H2btc)2(4,4‘-bpy)4]·H2O}n (3), [Zn(H2btc)(bpe)]n (4) [H4btc = biphenyl-3,3‘,4,4‘-tetracarboxylic acid, 4,4‘-bpy = 4,4‘-bipyridine, and bpe = 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethane], have been synthesized by hydrothermal reactions. Single-crystal X-ray structural analysis reveals that the four polymers exhibit different novel bilayer architectures. Complex 1 possesses a bilayer structure in which… CONTINUE READING
