Abstract Four novel coordination polymers ­[Cd2(oba)2(phen)2]n (1), ­[Mn3(oba)3(phen)2]n (2), [Zn(oba)(phen)]n (3) and [Mn(oba) (dmphen)]n (4) ­(H2oba = 4,4′-oxybis (benzoic acid), phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, dmphen = 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline) have been synthesized by the solvothermal method and then characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, infrared spectrum, UV–Vis spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis. Structural analysis suggests that complex 1 displays a 1D ribbon-like structure, which extends into a 2D supramolecular layer by intermolecular π⋯π stacking. For complex 2, the trinuclear building unit of ­[Mn3(oba)3(phen)2] bridged by the ­oba2− ligands leads to the formation of a 3D supramolecular network. Complex 3 adopts a mononuclear and 1D zigzag chain structure and also extends into a 2D supramolecular network by intermolecular π⋯π stacking. Complex 4 shows 1D infinite double-chain structures which are shaped by intermolecular π⋯π stackings. Photoluminescent properties of complexes 1 and 3 in solid state were also studied. In addition, complex 2 exhibits high performance in the selective adsorption of Congo red (CR) with an adsorption capacity of 64.4 mg g−1.

Introduction Organic dyes have been widely used in many industrial fields, e.g., in paper, printing, plastics, textiles, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and so on [1–3]. Most of dye materials are difficult to degrade due to their physical and chemical resistance to light and oxidants. So, the toxicities of several dyes have presented a great deal of long-term threat to the environment and are of serious concerns to the public health, such as aesthetic pollution, even carcinogenicity and perturbation to aquatic species [4–6]. Therefore, new Electronic supplementary material  The online version of this article (https​://doi.org/10.1007/s1124​3-020-00438​-0) contains supplementary material, which is available to authorized users. * Yan‑Hong Zhang [email protected] 1

technologies with high efficiency and low cost to remove and/or decompose dye stuffs from industrial or agricultural wastewater are urgently needed in order to achieve a clean and friendly environment. Recently, coordination polymers (CPs) or metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have been extensively used for adsorbing and separating dye molecules, due to their high surface area, large surface-to-volume ratio and available
