Abstract

Two classical metal clusters, CuI4I4 and CuI6S6, are introduced as functional connecting nodes to construct a novel multi-metal-cluster MOF [(CuI4I4)3(CuI6)2(3-ptt)12]n·24nDEF·12nH2O (1) that incorporate their inherent luminescent properties, induced by their respective metal–metal interactions. These two distinct clusters are combined together for the first time to perform as functional luminophores that display unusual dual emission with both thermochromic luminescence and near-infrared (NIR) character. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
