    • Abstract


      The title compound (C9H3O6·C20H17N4)4·0.5H2O 1 was isolated from solvothermal synthesis of 4'-(4-pyridyl)-2,2':6',2'-terpyridine (pytpy) and trimesic acid (1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid, H3BTC). It was characterized by element analysis, IR, TGA, XRD, X-ray single-crystal diffraction, and spectroscopy properties, together with quantum chemistry calculation of spectrum (UV-vis spectra) through the method b3lyp/6-31 t g (d,p) are also investigated. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction shows 1 possesses a 3-D supramolecular network with 1-D six-fold helical double chains built from protonated (H3pytpy)$^{3+}_n$ cations and deprotonated (BTC)$^{3−}_n$ anions. The maximum of the fluorescent emission bands of 1 is located at 427 nm ($\lambda_{\text{ex}}$ = 266 nm), with a shoulder at about 390 nm. The result of theoretic calculations confirms that 1 has small HOMO-LUMO energy gap (1.24 eV) and high chemical reactivity.
