Three new homochiral metal-organic coordination polymers [Cu 2camph2dabco] · DMF · 2H2O, [Cu2camph2bipy] · 3DMF · 2H2O, and [Cu2camph2bpe] · 4DMF · 2H2O (H2camph is (+)-cam-phoric acid, bipy is 4,4′-bipyridyl, bpe is trans-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene) were synthesized by heating copper(II) nitrate, (+)-camphoric acid, and N-donor ligands of different length (dabco, bipy, bpe) in DMF and characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy, and TGA. The obtained compounds are isostructural with the previously reported porous zinc(II) camphorates.
