      A solvothermal reaction of cadmium (II) nitrate with succinic acid and isonicotinic acid creates a novel 3D metal-organic framework, [Cd3(isonicotinate)2(suc)2]$_n$(1). Single crystal X-ray structure determination reveals that complex 1 posses two crystallographically independent Cd(II) centres. The succinate anion acts here as a heptadented ligand and binds five Cd(II) centre simultaneously. The heptacoordinated Cd(II) centres are oxo-bridged by succinate moiety and the hexacoordinated metal centres are terminally connected through four different succinate moiety to make the overall 2D sheet arrangement. In unit cell, the ratio of hexadented Cd(II) and heptadented Cd(II) is 1:2. The new compound was also characterized by luminescence spectra and compared with the luminescence spectra of the pure isonicotinic acid.

      Assembly of diphenylphosphate (dpp) with Cu(II) salts in combination with the different Ndonor linkers, e.g., pentamethyldiethylenetriamine (pmdeta), bis-(3-aminopropyl)amine (bapa) and 4-Picolene (4-pic), yielded three new metal-organic coordination complexes, namely {[Cu(dpp)(pmdeta)]·ClO₄.H₂O}₂ (1), {[{[Cu(dpp)(bapa)H₂O]·ClO₄} (2) and [Cu(dpp)2(4-pic)₂]₂ (3) by stirring the constituent reactants at room temperature. Complexes 1–3 were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and were further characterized by elemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy (IR) and powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) studies. Compound 1 exhibits a dimeric Cu(II) complex which forms a 1D supramolecular chain along the crystallographic c-axis by means of intermolecular π .. .π interactions. Compounds 2 and 3 form a monomeric and dimeric complex of Cu(II) respectively, which are further extended into a supramolecular 2D structure viaC-H..π interactions for 2 and a 3D structure for 3 with the help of both intermolecular C-H..π and π . . . π interactions for 3. In addition, the solid state UV-Vis spectra of compounds 1-3 and free dpp ligand have beeninvestigated at room temperature.
