Self-assembly of trans-{EuI2} nodes and ditopic ligands leads to isoreticular 2D frameworks featuring a rare, non-kagome Archimedean tessellation. The topology and intra-layer Eu(ii)-Eu(ii) antiferromagnetic interactions provide the prerequisites for geometrical spin frustration, which, due to the spin state degeneracy, is key for novel phenomena such as enhanced magnetic refrigeration.
