Abstract

Ce(NO3)3.6H2O or Pr(NO3)3.6H2O and pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid form a linear coordination polymeric structure under hydrothermal conditions. Hexameric water clusters join these linear chains through bonding to the metal ions. Other coordinated water and the carboxylate oxygen form an intricate array of hydrogen bonding resulting in a 3D network where each metal ion shows 9-coordination with an approximate D3 symmetry. Dimeric water clusters are also located in the void spaces. In the structure containing Pr(III), the water dimers are hydrogen-bonded to the hexamers, whereas in the Ce(III) structure, the dimers and the hexamers are far apart.
