A 3D open inorganic/organic framework, {[Cd(mu-L)(mu(3)-SO4)(H2O)]center dot H2O}(n) (1) [L = 1,4-bis(4-pyridyl)-2,3-diaza-1,3-butadiene] was synthesized by the reaction of CdSO4 center dot 8H(2)O with L. The treatment of Cu(NO3)(2)center dot 3H(2)O with the same N,N'-donor ligand in two different solvent mixtures, methanol/ dichloromethane (2) and methanol/ chloroform (3), afforded two new ladder-like coordination polymers of formula {[Cu(mu-L)(mu-NO3)(NO3)]center dot solv}(n) [solv = CH2Cl2 (2) and CHCl3 (3)]. The non-interpenetrated ladder motifs 2 and 3 enclathrate the uncoordinated solvent molecules. Crystalline coordination polymers 1 and 3 were also successfully prepared by a sonochemical method under different reaction conditions. Our results indicate that the size of the particles is dependent on the irradiation time. 1 and 3 exhibit intense luminescent emissions in the solid state at room temperature. Cryomagnetic measurements of 3 show the occurrence of a ferromagnetic interaction between the copper(II) ions through the double oxo-nitrate bridge together with a very weak inter-ladder antiferromagnetic interaction [J = +4.93(2) cm(-1), g = 2.10(1) and Theta = -0.567(5) K].
