Two 2D layered coordination networks with formulas of {[Co­(TPA)­Cl]­(H2O)2.5}n (1) and {[Co­(TPA)­(μ2-OH)]­(H2O)2}n (2) (HTPA = 4-(1,2,4-triazol-4-yl)­phenylacetic acid) were solvothermally synthesized and fully characterized. Interesting 1D Co2+-Cl or Co2+2-OH chain structures were observed. By carefully adjusting the reaction conditions, a new 3D metal–organic framework (MOF) with a formula of {[Co7(TPA)63-OH)42-OH)2(H2O)4]­(TPA)2(DMF)3(H2O)3}n (3) was obtained. MOF 3 is built from Co7 clusters and fully deprotonated TPA ligands, which display a cubic pcu topology. Factors that influence the structures of the three TPA-based complexes, as well as their magnetic properties, were investigated in detail. The heptanuclear-Co­(II)-cluster-based MOF 3 shows interesting magnetization dynamics at low temperature.
