(C<sub>8</sub>H<sub>22</sub>N<sub>4</sub>Zn)<sub>2</sub>Ge<sub>7</sub>O<sub>14</sub>(OH)F<sub>3</sub>: A One-Dimensional Zinc Germanate Containing Hollow Columns with an 18-Membered Window

A new zinc germanate incorporating a tetradentate amine ligand has been synthesized by the solvothermal method and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, solid-state <sup>19</sup>F NMR spectroscopy, thermal analysis, and IR spectroscopy. Its structure contains close-packed hollow columns with an 18-membered window, each of which contains six one-dimensional chains formed of Ge<sub>7</sub>X<sub>19</sub> (X = O, OH, F) clusters connected to zinc complexes.
