© 2017 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim Four new compounds, formulated as [Zn(μ-Pip)2(3-Phpy)]2 (1), [Zn(μ-Pip)2(4-Phpy)]2 (2), [Cd(μ-Pip)(Pip)(3-Phpy)2]2 (3) and [Cd(μ-Pip)(Pip)(4-Phpy)2]2 (4) (HPip=1,3-benzodioxole-5-carboxylic acid; Phpy= phenylpyridine), have been successfully assembled based on rigid carboxylate/pyridine ligands. These four compounds have been fully characterized by analytical and spectroscopic methods. The aim of the present study is to investigate the structural effect and the influence of the size of metal on the class, geometry and type of coordination of the carboxylate ligands (syn-syn, syn-anti) in the final 3D-arrangements of the structures. Finally, luminescence properties of these new four coordination dimers have been investigated.
