Title: Blue fluorescence of three metal-organic zinc polymers containing tetrazinc units and asymmetric ligand of btc{sup 3-}

Three new zinc coordination polymers [Zn{sub 2}(btc){sub 2}(H{sub 2}O){sub 2}] {sub n} .n[Zn(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}] (1), [Zn{sub 3}(btc){sub 2}(2,2'-bipy){sub 2}(H{sub 2}O){sub 3}] {sub n} .2nH{sub 2}O (2) and [Zn{sub 3}(btc){sub 2}(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}] {sub n} .nH{sub 2}O (3) (H{sub 3}btc=1,2,4-benzenetricarboxylic acid, 2,2'-bipy=2,2'-bipyridine) were obtained by the diffusion method and their crystal structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Compounds 1-3 have the similar tetrametallic unit [Zn{sub 4}(btc){sub 2}] SBUs and these SBUs are further connected into stair-like structure, 2-D layer and 3-D framework for 1, 2 and 3, in which the btc{sup 3-} ligands adopt {mu} {sub 3}, {mu} {sub 4} and {mu} {sub 5} coordination modes, respectively. The title compounds show strong blue fluorescence, which may be assigned as {pi}*{sup {yields}}n transition of the ligand mixed with the ligand-to-metal change transfer (LMCT), indicating the fluorescence, indicates the title compounds may be good candidates for blue-light photoactive materials.
