Metal–Organic Framework Based on Pyridine-2,3-Dicarboxylate and a Flexible Bis-imidazole Ligand: Synthesis, Structure, and Photoluminescence

A novel metal–organic framework {[Zn(2,3-pydc)(bbi)]·0.5CH3CN·2H2O}n (2,3-pydc = pyridine-2,3-dicarboxylate, bbi = 1,1′-(1,4-butanediyl)bis(imidazole)) (1), was prepared under hydrothermal conditions and characterized by elemental analyses, IR and X-ray diffraction. Crystal data for 1 are monoclinic, space group C2/c, a = 19.685(2) Å, b = 14.332(1) Å, c = 16.930(2) Å, β = 121.205(2)°, U = 4085.3(6) Å3, Z = 4. The results reveal that the Zn(II)-atom is five-coordinated with two O-atoms and three N-atoms forming a distorted trigonal bipyramidal geometry. The Zn(II) atoms are bridged by 2,3-pydc and bbi ligands, leading to a three-dimensional network. The Zn···Zn separations are 8.277 Å [through the 2,3-pydc bridge] and 12.638 Å [through the bbi bridge]. Additionally, 1 shows strong fluorescence in the solid state at room temperature.
