By the use of co-ligands tri(2-carboxyethyl)-isocyanurate) (H3tci) and 1H-3-(3-pyridyl)-5-(4-pyridyl)-1,2,4-triazole (3,4′-bpt), three coordination complexes, [Co3(tci)2(3,4′-bpt)2(H2O)4]·4H2O (1), [Cu3(tci)2(3,4′-bpt)2]·2H2O (2), and [Zn3(tci)2(3,4′-bpt)2(H2O)4]·4H2O (3), have been prepared by solvothermal methods and characterized by physicochemical and spectroscopic methods. Complexes 1 and 3 adopt a 3D (34) topology with the short Schläfli symbol of (6.82)4(62.82.102), both of them exhibiting threefold-interpenetrated networks. Complex 2 has a 2D 4-connected topology with the short Schläfli symbol of (44.62). Variable-temperature magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate that complexes 1 and 2 have antiferromagnetic interactions between the metal ions.
