A three-dimensional heterometallic coordination polymer formulated as Sm2Zn2(BIPA)5(H2O)2 (1) (H2BIPA = 5-bromoisophthalic acid) was synthesized by hydrothermal reaction of H2BIPA with Sm2O3 and Zn(NO3)2. Complex 1 shows an 8-connected (36.418.53.6) topological network. The thermal analysis of complex 1 has been measured and discussed. Additionally, the photoluminescent property of complex 1 was investigated.

Graphical Abstract

An intriguing feature of complex 1 is a 3D eight-connected framework of 36.418.53.6 topology.

Key Words
