Abstract

The reaction of Zn(OTf)2 with 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane results in a novel infinite hexanuclear coordination polymer, [Zn6(OH) 8{(NC5H4)2C3H 6}4](OTf)4 · 3H2O, which was found to carry out the catalytic transesterification of esters with methanol at room temperature under the mild homogeneous conditions.
