Eight unprecedented Ln-NDC coordination polymers with BBI as templates {[HBBI]­[Ln­(NDC)2(H2O)]·H2O [Ln = La (1), Pr (2)], [HBBI]2[Sm­(NDC)2(H2O)]2·1/2H2O (3), and [HBBI]­[Ln­(NDC)2(H2O)] [Ln = Eu (4), Gd (5), Tb (6), Dy (7), Er (8)] [Ln = lanthanide, H2NDC = 1,4-naphthalenedicarboxylic acid, BBI = bis­(2,2′-biimidazole)]} have been hydrothermally synthesized and structurally characterized by elemental analyses, IR spectra, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Complexes 18 crystallize in the monoclinic space group P21/c and display similar (8,8)-connected 3-D frameworks with different dinuclear Ln secondary building units due to the effect of Ln contraction and diverse coordination modes of NDC2– ligands. As the ionic radii of Ln ions decrease, the coordination numbers of Ln ions decrease from 10, to 9, to 8. The variable-temperature magnetic properties of 28 have been investigated. The strong fluorescent emissions of 4 demonstrate that ligand-to-EuIII energy transfer is efficient. In addition, thermogravimetric analyses and optical diffuse reflectance spectra of these compounds are also described.
