Construction of a 3-D supramolecular network from [Ln(cpb)(3)(H2O)(2)] (Ln = Nd, Tb; Hcpb = 1-(4-cyanophenyl)1,3-butanedione) by sequential displacement of a coordinated water by DMF, dimerisation by reciprocal hydrogen bonding in solution and pi-pi stacking and interdigitation of nitriles has been monitored by in situ fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
