Original Paper


A new cadmium(II) arenedisulfonate coordination polymer with uncoordinated pyridyl groups, formulating as [Cd(tpim)(2,6-nds)]n (1), was synthesized by the hydrothermal reaction of 2,6-naphthalenedisulfonate (2,6-nds), 2,4,5-tri(4-pyridyl)-imidazole (tpim) and Cd(CH3COO)2. The functional utility is investigated by employing 1 as an efficient heterogeneous nucleophilic catalyst for the acetylation of phenols. The catalyst 1 is stable under the studied reaction conditions, and could be recycled without significantly losing activity.
