Polycatenated Bilayer Structure Containing Honeycomb-like 63 Layers



A new luminescent Zn(II) compound, [Zn2(IN)3(bpy)0.5(CH3COO)]·2(DMA) (1, IN = isonicotinate, bpy = 4,4′-bipyridine, DMA = N,N-dimethylacetamide), was synthesized under solvothermal condition and structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1 features a (3,4)-connected bilayer structure with honeycomb-like 63 layers and bpy pillars. Each individual bilayer is catenated with two adjacent bilayers, giving rise to a rare 2D + 2D → 3D polycatenation motif.
