Three new coordination compounds, {[Cu(mu(3)-tdp)(phen)]center dot 2H(2)O} (1), {[Cu(mu(3)-tdp)(bipy)]center dot H2O}(n) (2), [Cu(mu(3)-tdp)(bhen)(4)](NO3)(2)center dot 2H(2)O (3) [tdpH(2) = 3,3'-thiodipropionic acid, phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, bipy = 2,2'-bipyridine] were synthesized and characterized by the IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, magnetic measurements and single crystal X-ray diffraction. Thermal behaviors and thermochromic properties of the complexes were investigated in detail. Complexes I and 2 are 1D coordination polymers while complex 3 is dinuclear structure. In complexes 1 and 2, the tdp acts as a tridentate bridging ligand to coordinate the two different Cu(H) centers to form 1D chain, which are extended into a 3D networks by hydrogen bonding and pi center dot center dot center dot pi interactions. The 3,3'-thiodipropionate ligand adopts a new coordination mode in 3. Furthermore, complex 3 changed the color from blue to green at 140 degrees C at solid state. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
