The hydrothermal reaction of CUCl2.2H2O and 4-(1H tetrazol-5-yl)-benzoic acid (H2tba) in the presence of excess HCl yielded the three-dimensional material (Me2NH2)[Cu 4Cl(tba)4(H2O)4]-2DMF. The structure is constructed from (Cu44-Cl)(H2O) 4}7+ clusters linked through tba2- ligands into an open framework with 57% void volume. The microporosity and magnetic properties of the material were investigated.
