By using a V-shaped N-containing ligand and a V-shaped carboxylate ligand, we have successfully synthesized a 3D novel copper homochiral coordination polymer, namely [Cu(OPY)(1,3-bdc)]n (complex 1), [1,3-H 2bdc = isophthalic acid, OPY = 4,4′-(oxybis(4,1-phenylene)) dipyridine]. The compound has been solvothermally synthesized and characterized by IR, elemental analysis, single crystal X-ray diffraction, XRD, UV-vis, and TG analysis. The complex 1 crystallizes in the chiral space group P65 and possesses an unprecedented uninodal 3D 75· 8 topology. However, the complex was synthesized by achiral materials. The complex 1 displays a moderate SHG response and its SHG efficiency is about 0.3 times that of urea. In addition, the compound shows high thermal stability. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
