Reaction of Cd(NCS)2 or Zn(NCS)2 with 3-aminomethylpyridine (3-AMPy) leads to the formation of five compounds with the compositions [Cd(NCS)2(3-AMPy)2·(3-AMPy)]n (1-Cd), [M(NCS)2(3-AMPy)2]n [M = Cd (2-Cd), Zn (2-Zn)] [Cd(NCS)2(3-AMPy)]n (3-Cd), and [Zn(NCS)2(3-AMPy)]2 (3-Zn). In 1-Cd the Cd cations are linked by the 3-AMPy ligands into layers that consist of rings, built up of four Cd cations and four 3-AMPy ligands. These layers are stacked to form channels, in which the 3-AMPy solvate molecules are located. In the isotypic compounds 2-Cd and 2-Zn the metal cations are also linked into layers by the 3-AMPy ligands with an identical layer topology as that in 1-Cd, but a completely different conformation of the 3-AMPy ligand. In the most 3-AMPy deficient compound 3-Cd, the Cd cations are linked by μ-1,3-bridging thiocyanate anions and 3-AMPy ligands into chains, that are further connected into layers by additional anionic ligands. In 3-Zn two Zn cations are linked by pairs of 3-AMPy ligands into discrete dimers. Thermoanalysis and X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) investigations show that upon heating 1-Cd transforms into 2-Cd and 2-Zn into 3-Zn. The compounds 2-Cd, 3-Cd, 2-Zn, and 3-Zn present ligand-based luminescence in the blue-green spectral range with maxima between 21276 and 21795 cm–1.
