The hydrothermal chemistry of the Ni(II)/molybdate/ 3,3′-bipyridine system exhibits pronounced pH dependence, such that under basic conditions a 2-D material with embedded clusters [{Ni(3,3′-bpy)2}2Mo4O14] 1 is observed, while under acidic conditions the 2-D bimetallic oxide network of [Ni(3,3′-Hbpy)Mo4O13(OH)] 2 is isolated.
