Title: Synthesis, characterization, and properties of the first indium borogermanate incorporating an organic amine ligand: InBGe{sub 2}O{sub 6}(OH){sub 2}(CH{sub 3}CH(NH{sub 2})CH{sub 2}NH{sub 2})·2H{sub 2}O

A new indium borogermanate incorporating an organic amine ligand, InBGe{sub 2}O{sub 6}(OH){sub 2}(CH{sub 3}CH(NH{sub 2})CH{sub 2}NH{sub 2})·2H{sub 2}O, was synthesized under solvothermal conditions and characterized by infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, and emission spectroscopy. This compound is a new example of the combination of metal, boron, and germanium atoms into one structure in the presence of organic amine molecules. Its 2D sheets with one 3-, one 4-, and two types of 6-membered rings consist of In{sub 2}O{sub 6}N{sub 4} octahedral dimers, Ge{sub 2}O{sub 6}(OH) double tetrahedra, and BO{sub 3}(OH) groups that are interconnected by water molecules to form a 3D supramolecular framework. Interestingly, the emission spectrum for this compound displays a strong broad band centered at 455 nm. - Graphical abstract: The first example of indium borogermanate incorporating an organic amine ligand was synthesized under solvothermal conditions. Infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, and emission spectroscopy have also been studied.
