Abstract

Reactions of divalent metal salts with 4,4-oxybis(N-(pyridine-4-yl)-benzamide), L, and naphthalene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid (1,4-H2NDC) in various solvents gave [Zn(L)(1,4-NDC)·H2O]n, 1, [Cd(L)(1,4-NDC)(H2O)·MeOH]n, 2, and [Co(L)(1,4-NDC)(H2O)0.5·MeOH]n, 3, which have been structurally characterized. Complexes 1–3 show eight-fold interpenetrating frameworks with the dia topology, which exhibit porosities substantiated by CO2 adsorption, whereas 1 and 2 manifest stability in aqueous environments and show high selectivity toward sensing of mesitylene molecules and Fe3+ ions with low detection limits and good reusability up to five cycles.
