Two new coordination polymers, namely, [[Zn2(TTR4A)(L)2]·DMF·4H2O]n (compound 1) and [[Co(TTR4A)Cl2]·DMA·H2O]n (compound 2), have been synthesized under solvothermal conditions (TTR4A = tetrakis(1, 2, 4-triazol-ylmethylresorcin[4]arene), L = 4, 4'-biphenyldicarboxylic acid, DMF = N, N-dimethylformamide and DMA = N, N-dimethylacetamide). Crystal structures of the coordination compounds 1 and 2 were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses, and further characterized by infrared spectra, elemental analyses, powder X-ray diffraction, and thermogravimetric analyses. In coordination compound 1, four L ligands bridge four adjacent Zn(Ⅱ) atoms to generate macrocyclic Zn4L4 units, which are further linked by the TTR4A ligands into a one-dimensional chain structure. In coordination compound 2, four 1, 2, 4-triazole groups of each TTR4A ligand bridge four Co(Ⅱ) atoms to form a two-dimensional layer structure. Furthermore, studies on the luminescent properties of compound 1 in solid state at room temperature reveal that it exhibits an intense emission peak. Luminescent-sensing detections for Fe3+, Cr2O72−, and nitrobenzene solvents were also investigated by using compound 1 as the potential luminescent sensor.
