A new zinc(II) coordination polymer, {[Zn(bpcdp)2(DMF)4](ClO4)2·(H2O)2}n (1) bpcdp = 2,6-bis(4-pyridinecarboxamide)pyridine has been synthesized and characterized by IR, 1HNMR and 13CNMR spectroscopy. The single crystal X-ray data of compound 1 shows the zinc(II) atom has been considered as octahedral with ZnN2O4 coordination sphere. Two nitrogen atoms of bpcdp ligand and four oxygen atoms of DMF molecules have occupied coordination sphere around zinc(II) atoms. The prepared zinc(II) coordination polymer grows in three-dimensional network by hydrogen bonding and π–π stacking interaction. The nanostructure of compound 1 were obtained by sonochemical process and studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), IR and NMR spectroscopy. Thermal stabilities of single crystalline and nano-size samples of compound 1 were studied by thermal gravimetric (TG) and differential thermal analyses (DTA). The ZnO nanoparticles were obtained by direct calcination of compound 1 at 400 °C and by thermolysis in oleic acid at 200 °C. The obtained zinc(II) oxide nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
