Three coordination polymers (CPs) with square-planar CuII/NiIIN4 subunits were formed in one step by subcomponent self-assembly, giving rise to an unprecedented linking variety of in situ embedded metalloligands and CuI clusters. All CPs exhibit unusual visible-light adsorption. Enhanced photocatalytic activity and high selectivity were observed in the oxidation of benzene under visible-light irradiation.
