Acta Crystallogr E Crystallogr Commun. 2021 Nov 9;77(Pt 12):1243-1248. doi: 10.1107/S2056989021011361. eCollection 2021 Dec 1.


Two structurally different metal-organic frameworks based on Sr2+ ions and 1,2,4,5-tetra-kis-(4-carb-oxy-phen-yl)benzene linkers have been synthesized solvothermally in different solvent systems and studied with single-crystal X-ray diffraction technique. These are poly[[μ12-4,4′,4”,4”’-(benzene-1,2,4,5-tetra-yl)tetra-benzoato](di-methyl-formamide)-distrontium(II)], [Sr2(C34H18O8)(C3H7NO)2] n , and poly[tetra-aqua-{μ2-4,4′-[4,5-bis-(4-carb-oxy-phen-yl)benzene-1,2-di-yl]dibenzoato}tris-trontium(II)], [Sr3(C34H20O8)2(H2O)4]. The differences are noted between the crystal structures and coordination modes of these two MOFs, which are responsible for their semiconductor properties, where structural control over the bandgap is desirable. Hydrogen bonding is present in only one of the compounds, suggesting it has a slightly higher structural stability.
