Abstract

A novel Pr complex, constructed from a rigid three-connected H3TMTA and praseodymium(III) ion, has been synthesized in a mixed solvent system and characterized by X-ray single crystal diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, a thermogravimetric analysis, an element analysis, and powder X-ray diffraction, which reveals that complex 1 crystallizes in a three-dimensional porous framework. Moreover, the thermal stabilities and the fluorescent and gas adsorption and separation properties of complex 1 were investigated systematically. View Full-Text
