Abstract

Reported herein is the new application of ionothermal synthesis for inorganic optical materials. Under ionothermal conditions with different imidazolium ionic liquids, novel quaternary heterometallic frameworks based on [Pb4(OH)4] cubane and [CuCl4] or [CuBr4] chains and [Cu2I6] binuclear clusters have been successfully produced. Simple chlorine, bromine and iodine replacement leads to not only the space group change (tetragonal I41/acd for 1 and 2, and orthorhombic Fddd for 3) but also the topological net transformation (8,12-net for 1 and 2, and 6,6-net for 3). Notably, compounds 1, 2 and 3 all show tunable solid-state semiconducting and luminescence properties.
