We designed and synthesized two new metal-organic-frameworks (MOFs) using the novel N-(2-tetrazolethyl)-4'-glycine spacer (TeGly)^2-. We report the in situ formation of cadmium- and zinc-based MOFs using hydrothermal routes. The cadmium-based MOF shows a bidimensional network with luminescence emission while the zinc-based MOF exhibits a three-dimensional structure with gismondine topology and intense blue-greenish photoluminescence emission at room temperature in the solid state. In addition, the porosity of the Zn-based MOF has been fully characterized using a combination of computational methods and experimental techniques.
