Two transitional metal complexes, [Zn(oba)(3-bpcd)]n (1) and [Cd(oba)(3-bpcd)0.5]n (2) [H2oba= 4,4′-oxybis(benzoic acid), 3-bpcd=N,N′-bis(pyridin-3-yl)cyclohexane-1,4-dicarboxamide], have been hydrothermally synthesized and structurally characterized by elemental analyses, infrared spectra, powder X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Complex 1 possesses a three-fold interpenetrating network based on layers with a 4-connected sql topology. Complex 2 is a layered framework constructed by the oba anions and 3-bpcd ligands, which represents a binodal (3,4)-connected {62.10}{6} topology. The adjacent layers of complex 2 are further linked by hydrogen bonding interactions to build a three-dimensional supramolecular architecture. The differences of metal ions in coordination modes show a significant effect on the final structures of the Zn(II)/Cd(II) complexes. The photocatalytic activities and the fluorescence sensing properties of complexes 1 and 2 were investigated.

Keywords: crystal structure; dicarboxylate; fluorescence sensing properties; photocatalytic activity; zinc/cadmium complex
