Original Paper


A novel metal–organic framework, {[H2N(CH3)2][Cd3(BTC)2(BTA)(H2O)2]·2H2O}n (1) (H3BTC = 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate, HBTA = 1H-Benzotriazolate), has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Compound 1 represents a new (3,3,6)-connected structural topology constructed by trinuclear {Cd3} clusters as secondary building units. Moreover, the luminescence properties of 1 have been well investigated.
