Solid state coordination chemistry of oxovanadium phosphates: Hydrothermal syntheses and structures of the network and chain phosphate phases [{Cu(bpy)}2(VO)3(PO4)2(HPO4)]·2H2O and [{Cu(terpy)}2(VO2)3(PO4)HPO4)2]

The hydrothermal reactions of Cu2O, the appropriate polypyridine ligand, Na3VO4, H3PO4 and H2O at 200°C yield the two-dimensional material [{Cu(bpy)}2(VO)3(PO4)2(HPO4)2]·2H2O and the one- dimensional phosphate [{Cu(terpy)}2(VO2)3(PO4)(HPO4)2], examples of the structure-directing role of secondary metal-ligand subunits on the architectures of vanadium phosphates.
