Hydroxo-Lanthanide Cluster Organic Framework Built by Hexanuclear Cluster Units

Original Paper


A novel hydroxo-lanthanide cluster organic framework, Sm3L8(μ 3-OH)(H2O)·H2O (1), derived from the 4-pyridin-4-ylbenzoic acid (HL) has been hydrothermally made and structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Structure analysis shows the hexanuclear Sm6 cluster unit is composed of inorganic tetranuclear hydroxo [Sm4(OH)2]10+ (Sm4) cluster and dimeric [Sm2(COO)4]2+ (Sm2) core. The Sm6 cluster units are connected by L ligands to form a 2D Ln-based cluster organic framework. From the topological point of view, the layer architecture can be described as 4-connected sql net. Furthermore, the elemental analysis, PXRD, IR and TGA are also studied.
