Four new lanthanide(III) complexes of 2-thiopheneacetic acid (HTPAC), [Tb(TPAC) 3 ·H 2 O]n (1), [Gd(TPAC) 3 · H 2 O]n (2), [Tb(TPAC) 3 (phen)] 2 (3) and [Tb(TPAC) 3 (bath)] 2 (4) (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline; bath = bathophenanthroline) have been synthesized and characterized by various spectroscopic techniques. The X-ray structure of 1 reveals that each Tb 3+ ion is connected to two neighboring ions by six thiopheneacetic acid ligands via the carboxylate groups to form an infinite one-dimensional polymer. The unit cell contains only one independent crystallographic site for the Tb ions. The carboxylate groups of the six molecules of the thiopheneacetate ligands are coordinated in both bidentate bridging and tridentate chelate-bridging modes. Each Tb 3+ ion is coordinated by nine oxygen atoms in an overall distorted tricapped trigonal-prismatic geometry. Eight of the oxygen atoms are furnished by the carboxylate moieties, and the remaining oxygen atom is provided by the water mole
