Two-Dimensional Luminescent Rectangular Molecular Grids Containing Copper(I)−Olefin Bonds as Bridging Spacers

The reaction of CuCl with 4-vinylpyridine (4-VPY) under hydrothermal conditions affords a 2-D copper(I)−olefin luminescent coordination polymer, [Cu(4-VPYA)Cl]n (1), with an approximately molecular rectangular grid dimension of 10.576 × 7.322 Å.
