Abstract

Abstract A three-dimensional (3D) metal-organic framework having a unique tetradecanuclear {Zn12(μ3-OH)6Na2(μ2-O)}18+ hetero-metal cluster core, formulated as {Zn12(BTDA)9(μ3-OH)6Na2(μ2-O)} (1) [H2BTDA=4,4'-(4,4'-dibutyl-2,2'-bithiazole-5,5'-diyl)dibenzoic acid], has been described herein. The tetradecanuclear hetero-metal cluster core is composed of two heptanuclear {Zn6(μ3-OH)3Na}10+ trifolium-shaped subunits where the axle sodium(I) ion is connected with three pairs of zinc(II) ions by three μ3-OH ions and the two sodium(I) ions are further linked by a μ2–oxo bridge. Besides, the auxiliary BTDA ligand serves as a multi-dentate bridging mode linking adjacent tetradecanuclear hetero-metal clusters into a 3D coordination polymer where a rhombohedral array with a new (418·8108·1227)·(4)9 topology is observed.
