Abstract

A heterotrinuclear Zn–Gd complex [GdZn2L2(OAc)2](CF3SO3) (1) based on the salphen Schiff-base ligand bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)-1,2-phenylenediamine (H2L) was synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure was solved in the triclinic space group P − 1 with a = 9.4743(19), b = 16.333(3), c = 19.291(4) Å, α = 88.89(3), β = 78.16(2), γ = 76.69(3)°, V = 2842.0(10) Å3, Z = 2, D c  = 1.610 g/cm3, F (000) = 1,386, R 1 = 0.0458, and wR 2 = 0.1239. In the solid state short intermolecular O···H–C hydrogen bonding, π–π stacking, and H···π interactions between neighboring [GdZn2L2(OAc)2]+ moieties generate a porous 3D-framework architecture with extended channels running along the a-axis.
