Abstract

The Group 13 metal complexes [M(L-2)(3)], where M is Al or Ga and L-2 is 1,3-di(4-pyridyl)-1,3-propanedionato, are hexatopic metalloligands that have been used to prepare mixed-metalorganic frameworks containing interpenetrated primitive cubic networks. In contrast, the europium complex [Eu(HL2)(3)-(H2L2)]Cl-4 center dot EtOH forms a hydrogen-bonded network following partial protonation of the pyridyl groups.
