Two scandium coordination polymers, a 2D supermolecule structure {[Sc(OH)(L1)2(H2O)]}n (1) (HL1 = isonicotinic acid), a 1D infinite chain structure {[Sc3(L2)4(H2O)4]·NO3·H2O}n (2) (H2L2 = 4,5imidazole dicarboxylic acid), as well as a scandium complex {[Sc2(OH)2(L3)2(H2O)4]}n (3) (H2L3 = 1,2,3triazole4,5dicarboxylic acid), were synthesized and characterized by Xray crystallography. Compounds 13 are active heterogeneous catalysts for highyield cyanosilylation of aromatic aldehydes in acetonitrile, particularly for pnitrobenzaldehyde. Moreover, these three catalysts can be reused three times without significant loss in activity or mass.
