A solvothermal reaction between Ln(NO3)3·6H2O (Ln: Gd, Tb and Dy), 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde, 2-OH-naphth, and ethylenediamine, en, in MeOH in the presence of a base, NEt3, led to the formation of the 1D coordination polymers [Ln(L)(MeO)(MeOH)0.5]n·MeOH (Ln = Gd (1·MeOH), Tb(2), Dy (3·MeOH); H2L = 1,1′-((1E,1′E)-(ethane-1,2-diylbis(azanylylidene))bis(methanylylidene))bis(naphthalen-2-ol), the Schiff-base ligand derived from the condensation of 2-OH-naphth and en), while a similar reaction in an excess of NaN3 yielded 1D coordination polymers [Ln(L)(N3)0.75(MeO)0.25(MeOH)]n (Ln = Gd (4), Tb (5), Dy (6)). Finally, upon replacing ethylenediamine with o-phenylenediamine, o-phen, we managed to isolate the discrete dimers [Dy2(L′)3(MeOH)]·2MeOH (7·2MeOH) and [Gd2(L′)3(MeOH)]·2MeOH (8·2MeOH) (H2L′ = 1,1′-((1E,1′E)-(1,2-phenylenebis(azanylylidene))bis(methanylylidene …
