Abstract 5-(3,4-Dicarboxylphenyl) picolinic acid ­(H3dppa) was applied as a new building block for the synthesis of two isomorphic coordination polymers, namely ­[Ni1.5dppa(H2O)3]n·nH2O (1), ­[Co1.5dppa(H2O)3]n·nH2O (2). Two compounds were generated by a hydrothermal self-assembly method using the corresponding metal(II) acetates and H ­ 3cppa ligand. Structure analysis reveals that compounds 1 and 2 are isomorphic both featuring a two-dimensional wave structure and are finally extended into the three-dimensional supramolecular architecture though hydrogen bonding interactions. Magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate that domain a weak ferromagnetic exchange coupling between the adjacent Ni(II) centers in 1, and a weak antiferromagnetic coupling between Co(II) ions in for 2.

Introduction The design of functional materials is a great challenge for synthetic chemists. Coordination polymers (CPs) have been significantly explored as new solid-state materials and have become a hot research topic for the scientists worldwide in the past two decades [1–5]. Coordination polymers (CPs) are being considered for a variety of applications such as luminescence and sensing, heterogeneous catalysis, gas storage/ separations, nonlinear optics, magnetic applications, and so on, due to their tunable structures and excellent properties [6–10]. However, the structures and properties of the CPs are difficult to be controlled, because they are influenced by many factors such as the configuration of ligand, types of metal ions, ratio of metal center to ligand, pH value, reaction temperature and solvent preference [11–14]. * Yufang Wang [email protected] * Liya Wang [email protected] 1

In recent years, carboxylic acid or pyridyl ligands have been extensively studied. However, the research of polycarboxylic acids with additional pyridyl functional binding sites has remained largely unexplored in the assembly of coordination polymers. Pyridylcarboxylates represent a type of commonly used multidentate building blocks, which possess the asymmetric backbones and two dissimilar functional groups [15–18]. In this regard, 5-(3,4-dicarboxylphenyl) picolinic acid ­(H3dppa) is one nitrogen-heterocyclic polycarboxylate ligands which possess a pyridyl ring and three carboxyl groups. Rotating of the C–C single bond between pyridyl and phenyl rings can facilitate a conformational adaptation. In addition to above, this ligand is thermally stable and has sev
