Title: Heterometal silver/copper(I) modulated thermochromism of two isostructural iodoplumbates

Two isostructrual heterometallic iodoplumbates [Y(DMF){sub 8}]{sub 2n}[Pb{sub 7}M{sub 2}I{sub 22}]{sub n} [M=Cu(1), Ag(2)] have been prepared. Chargely balanced by [Y(DMF){sub 8}]{sup 3+}, [Pb{sub 7}M{sub 2}I{sub 22}]{sub n}{sup 6n−} displays a 1D zigzag chain constructed from MI{sub 4} tetrahedron and Pb{sub 7}I{sub 24} unit similar to a fragment of commonly observed (PbI{sub 3}){sub n}{sup n−} chain. Their band gaps (Eg) can be estimated as 2.66 and 2.72 eV, revealing potential semiconducting properties. Interestingly, thermochromism exhibits different response to the temperature for two compounds, which is verified by the diffuse-reflectance UV–visible spectra and crystallographic data at different temperatures. Moreover, this phenomenon is attributed to the difference of heterometal Ag and Cu(I). - Graphical abstract: Two isostructrual heterometallic iodoplumbates [Y(DMF){sub 8}]{sub 2n}[Pb{sub 7}M{sub 2}I{sub 22}]{sub n} [M=Cu(1),Ag(2)] have been prepared.
