A metal-organic framework Nd(BTC)(H2O)·DMF (1), which is isostructural with reported Dy(BTC)(H2O)·DMF , Tb(BTC)(H2O)1.5·(DMF) (MOF-76)  and Eu(BTC)(H2O)·1.5H2O , is synthesized. The compound 1 was characterized by SEM/EDS, TGA and in situ PXRD. The structure was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1 crystallizes in a chiral space group P43, with a = 10.4278(4) and c = 14.2602(12) Å. The structure contains 1D chiral -Nd-O-C-O-Nd- chains linked by the phenyl groups of BTC ligands. The 3D framework contains circular channels along the  direction and is stable up to 400°C.
