2D-Coordination Polymers based on 1H-Indazole-4-carboxylic acid and Transition Metal ions: Magnetic, Luminescent and Biological Properties
We report the formation of five novel multifunctional coordination polymers based on 1H-Indazole-4-carboxylic acid (HL). To the best of our knowledge, these complexes are the first examples of coordination compounds construct with this novel ligand. These materials were synthesized by soft solvothermal routes, possess different 2D-structures and show interesting magnetic properties due to copper compound shows unusual spin-canted effect while anisotropic cobalt material behaves as a field-induced single molecule magnet. Moreover, cadmium and zinc polymers exhibit luminescent properties, as well as absence of cytotoxicity both in cancer and non-cancer cells, transforming this new family in excellent candidates to be further investigated in the field of luminescent materials with biomedical applications.
