Original Paper


A 4d–4f heterometallic coordination polymer, [AgEu(pydc)2]·2H2O (1) (H2pydc = pyridine-3,4-dicarboxylic acid), has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions, and further characterized by elemental analysis, IR, thermogravimetric analysis and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Complex 1 features a three-dimensional framework containing one-dimensional (1D) channels occupied by free water molecules, which is constructed from 1D inorganic heterometallic chains and linear pydc linkers. After removal of the water molecules from complex 1, the remaining material has high thermal stability. Moreover, the photoluminescence, and magnetic properties of 1 were also investigated.
