A new electrically conductive coordination polymer is synthesized using anthracene-incorporated organic ligand. The compound exhibits a band-like structure and long-range π–π stacking of ligand. Interestingly, the fabricated chemiresisitor using this coordination polymer shows selective sensing behavior for volatile amine detection with characteristics of quick response, good reproducibility, and room-temperature operation. This study not only presents a rare example of electrically conductive coordination polymer but also illustrates the useful application of coordination polymer for chemiresistor.
