  • A new three-dimensional (3D) extended solid [CuI(4,4′-bipy)] 4[δ-Mo8O26] (1) built on {Cu(4,4′-bipy)}+ (bipy = bipyridine) and isopolymolybdate anion [δ-Mo8O26]4- has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, TG, X-ray powder diffraction and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Compound 1 shows six coppers bonded to [δ-Mo8O26]4- to form inorganic planes which are linked by 4,4′-bipy into a 3D network, the first example of [δ-Mo8O26]4- six-connected linkage based on an organic-inorganic coordination polymer. A polymorphism of compound 1 was found which has an identical molecular formula but absolutely different structure. The influence of the synthesis conditions of 1 has been studied. Furthermore, the fluorescence of 1 is reported. © 2008 Taylor & Francis.
