A polymolybdate-based metal–organic compound {H2[Cu2(L)2(Mo8O27)(H2O)4]} (1) [L = N-(pyridin-3-yl)isonicotinamide] has been synthesized under solvothermal (methanol–water mixed solvent) conditions and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1 exhibits a 3D metal–organic network containing unusual 1D [Mo8O27] n 6n inorganic chains, with adjacent 1D chains connected by Cu(II) atoms and L ligands to form a 3D framework with a trinodal 4,4,6-connected {42.63.8}2{44.68.83} topology. The electrocatalytic activities of compound 1 and its photocatalytic properties for the degradation of organic dyes have also been investigated.
