Abstract

The solvothermal reaction of Cd(NO3)2·4H 2O and KNO3 with 1,3-benzenedicarboxylic acid (m-H 2BDC) in the presence of d- or l-2-amino-1-propanol (d- or l-APA) in ethanol led to two enantiomorphic Cd(ii)/K(i) coordination polymers, namely [Cd3K3(d-HAPA)3(m-BDC)6(EtOH) 3]n (1D) and [Cd3K3(l-HAPA) 3(m-BDC)6(EtOH)3]n (1L). They are 3D coordination polymers with multi-walled tubular channels constructed from a novel homochiral triple concentric helical structure in which a single helix {CdK-BDC}n is wrapped by unequal double-helical chains {Cd-BDC} n. Both complexes are NLO-active with weak SHG efficiencies. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
