Interwoven Metal-Organic Framework on a Periodic Minimal Surface with Extra-Large Pores

Chen, Bin; Eddaoudi, M; Hyde, Stephen; O'Keeffe, Michael; Yaghi, O


Interpenetration (catenation) has long been considered a major impediment in the achievement of stable and porous crystalline structures. A strategy for the design of highly porous and structurally stable networks makes use of metal organic building blocks that can be assembled on a triply periodic P-minimal geometric surface to produce structures that are interpenetrating - more accurately considered as interwoven. We used 4,4′,4″-benzene-1,3,5-triyl-tribenzoic acid (H3BTB), copper(II)...[Show more]
