A bifunctional metalloligand with metal−C (Ge−C) bonds, bis(carboxyethylgermanium) sesquioxide (H2E2Ge2O3, where E = −CH2CH2COO), has been used to make metal−organometallic frameworks (MOMFs) Cd1.5(E3Ge3O5) (1) and Pb(E2Ge2O3) (2). In the structures, the inorganic Ge2O3 cores of the metalloligands polymerize to form two kinds of infinite Ge−O chains, and the organic carboxyls induce the Cd and Pb ions to produce Cd−O and Pb−O chains. Further, the Ge−O chains link the Cd−O/Pb−O chains via −CH2CH2− groups to result in two novel MOMFs, showing high thermostability and blue-violet emission.
