KGaA, Weinheim The hydrothermal reaction of uranyl nitrate with 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (H 2 bdc) in the presence of strontium or potassium hydroxides and nitrates afford the formation of two new uranyl hybrid materials featuring extensive uranyl-strontium or uranyl-potassium interactions with [(UO 2 ) 3 (µ 3 -O)(µ 2 -OH) 3 ] + as the sub-building unit. Sr 1.5 [(UO 2 ) 12 (O) 3 (OH) 13 (bdc) 4 ]⋅6H 2 O (1) contains one-dimensional (1D) uranyl oxohydroxyl ribbons made of trinuclear pentagonal bipyramidal uranyl units. The ribbons are linked together via uranyl-strontium interactions to form 2D inorganic domains which are further connected through µ 4 -bdc anions forming a 3D hybrid structure. This is the first reported uranyl-strontium interaction in extended hybrid solid with the shortest Sr-O −yl bond length of 2.596 (8) Å. K 3 [(UO 2 ) 12 (O) 3 (OH) 13 (bdc) 4 ]⋅8H 2 O (2) has a similar 3D hybrid structure built up through extensive K-O −yl interactions with the shortest K-O −yl bond length of 2.620 (6) Å. Raman spectroscopy has confirmed the presence of oxo-bridging (U−O−U) vibrations. Thermal stabilities and photoluminescent properties are reported.
