Title: Syntheses, crystal structures, and properties of four complexes based on polycarboxylate and imidazole ligands

Four metal–organic coordination polymers [Zn(HL)(H{sub 2}O)]·4H{sub 2}O (1), [Zn(HL)(L{sub 1})]·4H{sub 2}O (2), [Cu(HL)(H{sub 2}O)]·3H{sub 2}O (3) and [Cu(HL)(L{sub 1})]·5H{sub 2}O (4) were synthesized by reactions of the corresponding metal(II) salts with semirigid polycarboxylate ligand (5-((4-carboxypiperidin-1-yl)methyl)isophthalic acid hydrochloride, H{sub 3}L·HCl) or auxiliary ligand (1,4-di(1H-imidazol-4-yl)benzene, L{sub 1}). The structures of the compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR spectroscopy and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The use of auxiliary ligand L{sub 1} has great influence on the structures of two pairs of complexes 1, 2 and 3, 4. Complex 1 is a uninodal 3-connected rare 2-fold interpenetrating ZnSc net with a Point (Schlafli) symbol of (10{sup 3}) while 2 is a one-dimensional (1D) ladder structure. Compound 3 features a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb network with typical 6{sup 3}-hcb topology, while 4 is 2D network with (4, 4) sql topology based on binuclear Cu{sup II} subunits. The non-covalent bonding interactions such as hydrogen bonds, π···π stacking and C–H···π exist in complexes 1–4, which contributes to stabilize crystal structure and extend the low-dimensional entities into high-dimensional frameworks. And the photoluminescent property of 1 and 2 and gas sorption property of 4 have been investigated. - Graphical abstract: Four new coordination polymers have been obtained and their photoluminescentmore » and gas sorption properties have also been investigated. - Highlights: • Two pairs of Zn{sup II}/ Cu{sup II} compounds have been synthesized. • Auxiliary ligand-controlled assembly of the complexes is reported. • The luminescent properties of complexes 1–2 were investigated. • The gas sorption property of 4 has been investigated.« less
