Two hexanuclear 3d-4f Ni-Eu and Cu-Eu complexes [Eu(4)Ni(2)L(2)(OAc)(12)(EtOH)(2)] (1) and [Eu(4)Cu(2)L(2)(OAc)(12)]ยท2H(2)O (2) are reported which are formed from the salen type Schiff-base ligand H(2)L (H(2)L = N,N'-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)butane-1,4-diamine). In both complexes, four Eu(3+) cations are bridged by eight OAc(-) groups and the chain is terminated at each end by two ML (M = Ni and Cu) units. The structures of 1 and 2 were determined by single crystal X-ray crystallographic studies and the luminescence properties of the free ligand and metal complexes in solution were measured.
