The complex [Pd(Bipy)2](Bpcc) · 11H2O has been synthesized and characterized (Bipy = 2,2′-bipyridyl, H2Bpcc = 4,4′-biphenylcarboxylic acid). The supramolecular architecture was constructed through hydrogen bonding and π-π-stacking. The Pd atom is four-coordinated and forms a distorted square geometry. The free H2O molecules form 1D infinite zigzag chains of water cluster, while the water cluster and Bpcc2− form an organic-water framework.
