In this paper, three isostructural porous coordination polymers, namely, [Mn63-O)2(sao)6­(DMF)4(L1)2/3]·4DMF·2H2O·2CH3OH (1), [Mn63-O)2(sao)6­(DMF)4(L2)2/3]·4DMF·2H2O·2CH3OH (2), and [Mn63-O)2(sao)6­(DMF)4(L3)2/3]·4DMF·4H2O·2CH3OH (3) (DMF = dimethylformamide, H2sao = salicylaldoxime, H3L1 = benzene-1,3,5-trisbenzoic acid, H3L2 = 4,4′,4″-s-triazine-2,4,6-triyltribenzoic acid, and H3L3 = 2,4,6-tris­(4-carboxyphenoxy)-1,3,5-s-triazine), based on the oximato-bridged {Mn6} single-molecule magnet (SMM) and tricarboxylic acid ligands, were designed and synthesized. X-ray structural analysis shows that they possess a two-dimensional layered structure, where the {Mn6} moieties are linked by the corresponding (Lx)3– carboxylate ligands (x = 1, 2, 3) forming a huge honeycomb layer. These compounds not only show the SMM behavior as confirmed by alternative current susceptibility measurements but also show selectivity for CO2 over N2 at 273 K. On the basis of the magnetic fitting to the magnetic susceptibilities and the field dependence of magnetization for complexes 13, the spin ground states are S = 4. Compared with isolated {Mn6} SMMs with S = 4, the out-of-phase susceptibilities of 13 show obvious peaks only under the external direct-current field of 2 kOe. However, no peaks in χm″ are observed in the partially desolvated sample of compound 1.
