Abstract

Two luminescent functionalised supramolecular coordination polymers, namely, [Zn(TPDC-2CH3)(H2O)2]·H2O (1) and [Cd(TPDC-2CH3)(H2O)4]·H2O (2), were successfully synthesised by the reaction of 2′,5′-dimethyl-[1,1′:4′,1″-terphenyl]-4,4″-dicarboxylic acid (H2TPDC-2CH3) with Zn2+ and Cd2+ ions, respectively. X-Ray crystallographic analysis reveals that both compounds 1 and 2 exhibit fascinating 3D supramolecular networks, in which metal ions are linked by ligands to form a 1D chain which further extends to a 3D structure through the interaction of hydrogen bonding. The use of 1 and 2 as luminescent sensors for the optical detection of metal ions: Na+, K+, Hg2+, Ag+, Ca2+, Co2+, Ni2+, Mn2+, Cu2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Mg2+, Al3+, Fe3+, Fe2+, In3+, Bi3+, and Cr3+ was carried out in aqueous solution, and the results indicated that compound 1 could effectively detect Hg2+ ions among various cations at room temperature, with a detection limit of 3.6 × 10-15 M.
