Abstract

Three new lanthanide 1-D coordination polymers ({[Ln 2(H 2L)(OAc) 6]·EtOH·2H 2O} n (Ln = Eu (1), Er (2)) and {YbNiLCl(OAc) 2(H 2O)} n (3)) and a heterobinuclear complex [YbNiLCl 3(H 2O) 3] (4) are reported which are formed from salen type Schiff-base ligands H 2L (H 2L = N,N′-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)butane-1,4-diamine). The polymeric structures are formed by bridging H 2L units in the case of 1 and 2, and by acetate groups in 3. The structures of 1-4 were determined by single crystal X-ray crystallographic studies and their luminescence properties in MeCN solution were determined.
