Abstract

While a twofold interpenetrated 3-D metal–organic framework, [Cu3(L1)2(H2O)3]·14DMF·16H2O (1) (where, L1 is 4,4′,4′′-[1,3,5-benzenetriyltris(carbonylimino)]trisbenzoate and DMF is N,N′-dimethylformamide), with a (3,4)-connected pto net topology was prepared using a tricarboxylic acid linked via secondary benzamide as an extended 3-connected node and a Cu paddle-wheel secondary building unit as a planar 4-connected node, another tricarboxylic acid with methylated tertiary benzamide linkage in a folded geometry completely converted its role from diverging to chelating ligand and resulted in a finite Ni14 metal–organic cluster, [Ni143-OH)8(L2)6(formate)2(DMF)10(H2O)2]·28DMF·14H2O (2) (where L2 is N,N′,N′′-methyl-4,4′,4′′-[1,3,5-benzenetriyltris(carbonylimino)]trisbenzoate).
