Abstract

The hydrothermal reactions of cupric acetate, MoO3 and the dipodal linker ligand N1, N1, N4, N 4-tetrakis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)butane-1,4-diamine (L4) provided a high temperature phase [{Cu2(L4)(H2O)2}Mo 8O26(H2O)2]•2H2O (1•2H2O) and a low temperature phase [{Cu2(L4)} 2{Mo8O26}{MoO4}2] •2H2O (2•2H2O). Compound 1 is two-dimensional, constructed from {Mo8O26(H2O)2} 4- clusters linked through {Cu2(L4)(H2O) 2}4+ rods. In contrast, compound 2 is three-dimensional with two distinct molybdate building blocks, γ-{Mo8O 26}4- clusters and {MoO4}2- tetrahedra, linked through two distinct {Cu2(L4)}4+ subunits, one connecting four {MoO4}2+ tetrahedra and the second a {MoO4}2+ tetrahedron and one octamolybdate cluster.
