A Cu(II) based metal–organic framework (MOF), [Cu2(TPT)2(BTC)Cl]·(solvent)x, (TPT = 2,4,6-tris(4-pyridyl)-1,3,5-triazine, BTC = benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylic acid) has been solvothermally synthesized and characterized using single crystal X-ray diffraction, powder X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis and magnetic measurements. This compound adopts three-dimensional connectivity where Cu2+dimers are linked with BTC ligand to form the layered architecture. This layered motif is pillared by TPT linker to form the three-dimensional structure. Magnetic studies show that the compound undergoes a magnetic long-range ordering at TN ≈ 5 K. A large value of Curie–Weiss temperature compared to TN suggests strongly frustrated nature of the magnetic compound.
