Original Paper


A new compound consisting of Keggin-type polyoxometalate and transition metal complex, [Cr(apca)2(H2O)2]4[SiW12O40]·12H2O(1), (apca = 3-aminopyrazine-2-carboxylate anion), was synthesized with conventional method and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, TG analyses, PXRD. Fluorescent property was explored. The [SiW12O40]4− anions and complex cations [Cr(apca)2(H2O)2]+ in compound 1 are connected by hydrogen bonds and π–π interaction, forming the 3D structure. Especially, [Cr(apca)2(H2O)2]+ cations are linked into left-hand helical chain extending along c-axis through hydrogen bonds, forming a channel A. The chains connect other four chains from four directions also through hydrogen bonds, then the four chains enclose a channel B whose inside dimension is a little bigger than that of A, polyoxoanions fill in the channel B, and free waters in the channel A. Compound 1 shows an asymmetric wide emission band at λmax = 435 nm, which may belongs to the intraligand π* → π transition.
