Complexes [Zn(bpdc)(H 2O) 2] (1) and [Mn(bpdc)(H 2O) 3]·2.5H 2O (2) were assembled by 2,2′-bipyridine-6,6′-dicarboxylate (H 2bpdc) with Zn 2+ or Mn 2+ under hydro/solvo-thermal conditions. Complexes 1 and 2 are extended from mononuclear to 1D, 2D and 3D supramolecular network step by step with the help of intramolecular weak interactions. The luminescent properties of 1 had been investigated in details, which show intense blue emission with relatively good quantum yield. The 2 displays nonlinear optical (NLO) activity comparable with that of KDP, and exhibits weak antiferromagnetic coupling between the Mn (II) ions by the hydrogen bonds. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
