Two novel Co(II)-organic frameworks with helical structures, [Co(hfipbb)(py)]n (1) and {[Co4(OH)(H2O)(hfipbb)3(Hhfipbb)(bpp)2]·H2O}n (2) (H2hfipbb = 4,4′-(hexafluoroisopropylidene)bis(benzoic acid), py = pyridine, bpp = 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane), have been assembled from flexible bent ligands. Complex 1 displays a 2-fold parallel interpenetrated layer network with one-dimensional double helical channels, while 2 exhibits a three-dimensional pillared helical-layer open framework with six-connected self-penetrating topology based on a mixed dinuclear paddle-wheel cluster and tetranuclear [Co43-OH)22-OH2)2] steplike cluster.
