Abstract / Description of output

We present a new heteroditopic ligand (3pyCCMoid) that contains the typical skeleton of a curcuminoid (CCMoid) decorated with two 3-pyridyl groups. The coordination of 3pyCCMoid with ZnII centres results in a set of novel coordination polymers (CPs) that display different architectures and dimensionalities (from 1D to 3D). Our work analyses how synthetic methods and slight changes in the reaction conditions affect the formation of the final materials. Great efforts have been devoted toward understanding the coordination entities that provide high dimensional systems, with emphasis on the characterization of 2D materials, including analyses of different types of substrates, stability and exfoliation in water. Here, we foresee the great use of CCMoids in the field of CPs and emphasize 3pyCCMoid as a new-born linker.
