Abstract: Two complexes, {Zn(bptc)0.5(bib)} n (I) and {Mn2(bptc)(pip)(H2O)} n (II) (H4bptc = biphenyl-3,3′,5,5′-tetracarboxylic acid; bib = 1,4-bis(2-methylimidazol-1-yl)butane; pip = 2-phenyl-1H-imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline) were synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, IR, TGA and solid fluorescence spectra. The results show that I and II both have 3D network architectures. I has porous architecture with a 162 topology structure. Effective porosity calculated by Platon is 5.5 %. Moreover, it has a two-fold interpenetrating structure allowed by a 70.73° torsion between the benzene rings of the bptc4− ligand and the flexibility of bib. II has a tetranuclear structure composed of binuclear architecture units with the torsion of 43.44° between the benzene rings of the bptc4− ligand. TGA shows that the skeletons of I and II are stable up to 372°C and 553°C, respectively. I exhibits fluorescence.

Keywords: biphenyl-3,3′,5,5′-tetracarboxylic acid – nitrogen-containing organics – parallel interpenetrating – polynuclear – solid fluorescence
