Title: Synthesis of CuO by Cu-CPPs with the determination of Cu(II) coordination modes from a novel complex of [Cu(terpyOH){sub 2}]·(HBTC)·2H{sub 2}O

In this study, we investigated the synthesis of CuO microrods by simple calcination of copper-based coordination polymer particles (Cu-CPPs) at high temperature in air. The photocatalytic activity of the CuO microrods was tested by the decomposition of aqueous solution of RhB, which was completely decomposed by irradiation with light. To analyze the relationship of metal ions and ligands in the Cu-CPPs, the single crystal of [Cu(terpyOH){sub 2}]∙(HBTC)∙2H{sub 2}O (1) (terpyOH=4′-hydroxy-2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine, BTC=1,3,5-benzene tricarboxylate) was first prepared and characterized by X-ray single crystal structural analysis. A variety of hydrogen bonds constructing the 3D complex structure in [Cu(terpyOH){sub 2}]∙(HBTC)∙2H{sub 2}O (1) were observed. - Graphical abstract: Demonstrating a general method to synthesize CuO microrods via simple calcination of Cu-CPPs and Cu(II) coordination modes from a novel complex of [Cu(terpyOH){sub 2}]∙(HBTC)·2H{sub 2}O constructed by hydrogen bonding. Display Omitted - Highlights: • The formation of microrods CuO from thermal treatment of Cu-CPPs through an “escape-by-crafty-scheme” strategy has been studied. • Determination of Cu(II) coordination modes in Cu-CPPs from a novel complex of [Cu(terpyOH){sub 2}]∙(HBTC) 2H{sub 2}O. • Invested the behave of hydrogen bonding to construct the 3D complex structure. • Commendable photodegradation performance was observed.
