Abstract

The solvothermal reaction of 3-(4-pyridyl)benzoic acid and zinc nitrate yielded a 2D network with an sql topology. Both elemental analysis and single crystal X-ray diffraction studies confirmed the formula of the compound as {[Zn(34pba)2] · (0.5 DMF) · (0.5 H2O)}n (1). At room temperature, the desolvated phase of 1, 1d, absorbs methanol, ethanol, 1-propanol and 1-butanol but not water vapour.
