Five new lanthanide 1-D coordination polymers are reported which are formed from flexible salen type Schiff-base ligands H2L and H 2L′ (H2L = N,N1-ethylene bis(salicylideneimine); H2L′ = N,N1-bis(3- methoxysalicylidene)ethylene-1,2-diamine). The polymeric structures are formed by bridging neutral H2L units in the case of {[Ln2L 2(CF3SO3)(H2L)4(MeOH)] ·CF3SO3}n (Ln = Eu (1), Nd (2) and Er (3)), and by acetate (OAc-) groups in [Yb2(L) 2(OAc)2(MeOH)2]n (4) and {[Tb 3(L′)2(OAc)5]·Et 2O·(MeOH)0.5}n (5). The structures of 1-5 were determined by single crystal X-ray crystallographic studies and the luminescence properties of 1 and 5 in MeOH solution were determined.
