Research on structure and magnetic properties of polynuclear metal complexes to understand the structural and chemical factors governing the electronic exchange coupling mediated by multi-atom bridging ligands is of growing interest. Hydrothermal treatment of Ni(NO3) 2{\textperiodcentered}6H2O with N-(4-carboxyphenyl)iminodiacetic acid [N-4(H3CPIDA)] at 150 °C yielded a 3D coordination polymer of general formula [Ni3{N-4(CPIDA)}2(H2O) 3]{\textperiodcentered}6H2O (1). An analogous network of general formula [Co3{N-3(CPIDA)}2(H2O) 3]{\textperiodcentered}3H2O (2) was synthesized using N-(3-carboxyphenyl)iminodiacetic acid [N-3(H3CPIDA)] in combination with Co(NO3)2{\textperiodcentered}6H2O under identical reaction condition. Both the complexes contain trinuclear secondary building unit and crystallized in monoclinic system with space groups C2/c (1) and P21/c (2), respectively. Variable temperature magnetic characterization of these complexes in the temperature range of 2-300 K indicated the presence of overall ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic behavior for 1 and 2, respectively. Density functional theory calculations (B3LYP functional) were performed for further insight on the trinuclear units to provide a qualitative theoretical interpretation on the overall magnetic behavior of the complexes 1 and 2. {\textcopyright} 2010 Elsevier B.V.
