Figure 5
Reaction scheme, structures, and schematic representation of the topologies of [Cnmim]2[Ni3(BTC)2(OAc)2] [n = 2 (A1), 3 (A2), or 4 (A3)] and [Cnmim]2[Ni3(H-BTC)4(H2O)2] [n = 2 (B1) or 4 (B2)]. [EMI] = [C2mim]+, [PMI] = [C3mim]+, and [BMI] = [C4mim]+. In the structure drawings, imidazolium cations are shown in yellow (A1, A2, and A3) and orange (B1 and B2). In the topology drawings, the cyan and yellow spheres represent the Ni3 units and BTC2− linkers, respectively. The 2D layers are shown in purple. From Xu et al. (2009BB69).
