A novel 2D → 2D parallel interpenetrated coordination polymer [Zn2(pdoa)2(bpp)2(H2O)]·4H2O (1) [H2pdoa = 2,2′-(1,3-phenylenedioxy)bis(acetate), bpp = 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane], has been synthesized by hydrothermal reaction of Zn(Ac)2·2H2O, bpp and H2pdoa, and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectra, PXRD, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure determination reveals that 1 features a 2D parallel interpenetrated 44-sql net generated by 2-crossing [2]-catenane motif, and pairs of interpenetrating 2D sheets show the same handedness. The overall structure, however, is achiral—in each layer of doubly interpenetrating nets, the two individual nets have the opposite handedness to the corresponding nets in the adjoining layers. Moreover, the thermal stabilities and photoluminescence properties of 1 were also discussed.

Graphical Abstract

A novel 2D two-fold interpenetrated coordination polymer, [Zn2(pdoa)2(bpp)2(H2O)]·4H2O (1) has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectra, PXRD, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Furthermore, thermogravimetric analysis and the photoluminescence properties of complex 1 were also studied
