The synthesis and characterization of the first metal phosphate containing 4,4′-bipyridine in two distinct forms is described; the structure consist of phosphate-bridged vanadium(III) chains, which are linked through 4,4′-bipyridine ligands to form anionic {[V2(HPO4)4-(4,4′-bpy)2] 2-} sheets with the charge-compensating uncoordinated (4,4′-H2bpy)2+ cations between the sheets.
