Nine one-dimensional (1D) lanthanide(III) coordination polymers with the formulas {[La(pta)(H2O)4]·2H2O}n (1), {[Ln(pta)(H2O)5]·4H2O}n [Ln = Sm (2), Eu (3), Tb (4), Ho (5)], and {[Ln(pta)(H2O)3]·4H2O}n [Ln = Dy (6), Er (7), Tm (8), Yb (9)] (H3pta = 2,4,6-pyridinetricarboxylic acid) have been synthesized by reacting the corresponding rare earth salts with H3pta at room temperature. The X-ray structure analyses show three kinds of 1D chain structures. Complexes 25 and 69 are isostructural, respectively. Complex 1 crystallized in the triclinic with P1 space group, 25 crystallized in the orthorhombic with Pna21 space group and 69 crystallized in the monoclinic with P21/c space group. In the three kinds of structures, H3pta displays two different coordination modes, and there are intramolecular π−π stacking interactions between the pyridyl ring planes. The complexes of Sm(III), Eu(III), Tb(III), and Dy(III) exhibit the corresponding characteristic luminescence in the visible region at an excitation of 305 nm, and the complexes of Er(III) and Yb(III) show luminescence in the near-infrared region upon excitation of UV rays.
