Original Paper


In this study, we show the solvent-induced formation of two new analogic six-connected 3d–4f heterometal-organic frameworks, formulated as [Dy4Cu 8 I 3-OH)3I(cpt)12](NO3)4·3EtOH·4H2O (1) and [Dy3Cu 8 I I(cpt)12](NO3)4·13EtOH·16H2O (2), based on the same {Cu 8 I I} cluster but incorporating different lanthanide metal clusters by employing a bifunctional ligand featuring both azole and carboxylic groups. The both MOFs show ligand-directed assembly mode, with the azole group binding to the Cu-based unit and carboxylic group connecting to the Dy-based cluster. Furthermore, the two MOFs show different interpenetrating patterns with MOF 1 shows a two-fold interpenetrated network and MOF 2 demonstrates a non-interpenetrated network. In addition, the magnetic properties of 1 and 2 have also been investigated.
