Two new organic-inorganic hybrid vanadates, [Cu(1,10-phenanthroline)(H2O)V2O6] (1) and [Co(1,10-phenanthroline)(H2O)V2O6] (2) were synthesized hydrothermally. The cell parameters of the compounds are: 1, a=7.8353(5), b=9.2300(6), c=10.7162(7) Å, α=88.830(1), β=70.891(1), γ=76.444(1)°, V=710.55(8) Å3, Z=2 and 2, a=7.8357(4), b=21.0896(12), c=9.4155(5) Å, β=112.904(1), V=1433.26(13) Å3, Z=4. Compound 1 is one-dimensional consisting of [V4O12]4- rings connected through [Cu(phen)(H2O)]2+ subunits. The structure of 2 is two-dimensional, with a network constructed from one-dimensional chains of corner-sharing [VO4]3- tetrahedra, which are linked through [Co(phen)(H2O)]2+ groups.
