Three open frameworks, [Ni(pnta) 2]·1.3DMF (1), [Zn 2(pnta) 3(OH)]·2DMF (2), and [Cd(pnta) 2]·3.8DMF (3), were obtained by solvothermal reactions between 6-(pyridin-4-yl)nicotinic acid (Hpnta) and nickel(II), zinc(II) and cadmium(II) nitrate, respectively. Compound 1 is a chiral framework with a fourfold interpenetrated diamondoid network structure and two types of chiral channels. Compound 2 also possesses the fourfold interpenetrated adamantanoid architecture with helical rhombic nanotube-like channels, each of which has two sides of double-layer walls and two other sides of single-layer walls. Compound 3 is a rarely reported double-walled framework with bcu topology. The luminescent properties of compounds 2 and 3 have been studied in the solid state at room temperature.
