Two new complexes, {[Co(INAIP)·H2O]·2H2O}n (1), and {[Cu(INAIP)]·H2O}n (2) [H2INAIP = 5-(isonicotinamido)isophthalic acid] were synthesized under hydrothermal conditions, and characterized by single-crystal X-ray structure determination, thermogravimetric analysis, X-ray powder diffraction, and magnetic studies. In complex 1 both CoII atoms and INAIP2– ligands act as four-connected node, whereas in 2 both CuII atoms and INAIP2– ligands act as three-connected node.
