Two new 3D frameworks [(WS4Cu6Br4)(timp)8/3(H2O)40/3]n (1) and [(WS4Cu6Br4) (timtz)8/3(H2O)40/3]n (2), containing heptanuclear cluster blocks (one W atom and six Cu atoms) bridged by trigonal ligands timp or timtz (timp = 1-(3,5-di (1H-imidazol-1-yl)phenyl)-1H-imidazole; timtz = 2,4,6-tri(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-1,3,5-triazine), were successfully synthesized. Both compounds were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, XRD, IR, TGA. X-ray determination shows that 1 and 2 can be topologically represented as (3,4)-connected networks with α-C3N4 (or ctn) topology where [WS4Cu6] act as the 4-connecting nodes, and the timp or timtz ligands bridge in pairs that act as the three-connecting nodes. Both compounds have the high symmetry of space group I-43d, which is the maximum symmetry for this net topology. The luminescent spectra and N2 absorption behaviors for 1 and 2 have also been investigated.
