    • Abstract


      An inorganic–organic hybrid compound, namely [{Cu(2-pzc)(H2O)2}2{H7AlMo6O24}]·17H2O was synthesized based on Anderson–Evans cluster by the normal stirring process at room temperature. Its structure consists of metal coordination polymer covalently linked with Anderson–Evans cluster forming a2D-sheet with void space containing water chains as determined by Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction technique. This material owing to its void space of approx. 13 Å was utilized for adsorption of organic dyes like MethyleneBlue (MB), Basic Violet 1 (BV1) and shows ultra-high uptake (more than 90%) within 5 min.
