The hydrothermal reactions of Na3VO4, tetrapyridylporphyrin (tpypor), phenylphosphonic acid and the appropriate M(II) salt yielded the three-dimensional oxide frameworks [Cu(tpypor){Cu 2V2O2(O3PC6H 5)4}] •2H2O (1•2H2O) and [Ni(tpypor){V4O4(O3PC6H 5)4}]•2H2O (2•2H2O), which are constructed from {X2V2O2 (O 3PC6H5)4} n chains [X = Cu (1), VO (2)] linked through {M(tpypor)} subunits [M = Cu (1), Ni (2)]; the structures differ only in the replacement of the Cu(II) sites on the chain of 1 by {VO}2+ units in the structure of 2, a manifestation of the retention of structural motifs derived from common secondary building units.
