In the domain of health, one important challenge is the efficient delivery of drugs in the body using non-toxic nanocarriers. Most of the existing carrier materials show poor drug loading (usually less than 5 wt% of the transported drug versus the carrier material) and/or rapid release of the proportion of the drug that is simply adsorbed (or anchored) at(More)
The molecular building block (MBB) approach has recently emerged as a powerful strategy for the design and construction of solid-state materials.1 This is evidenced by the burgeoning academic and industrial2 interest in the class of materials known as metalorganic frameworks (MOFs), for which desired functionality can be introduced at the molecular level(More)
The extra-large cavities of zeolite-like metal-organic frameworks (ZMOFs) offer great potential for their exploration in applications pertinent to larger molecules, like porphyrins. The anionic nature of the framework allowed for facile in situ encapsulation of a cationic free-base porphyrin, and the alpha-cage of our (In-imidazoledicarboxylate)-based(More)
In this review, we describe two recently implemented conceptual approaches facilitating the design and deliberate construction of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), namely supermolecular building block (SBB) and supermolecular building layer (SBL) approaches. Our main objective is to offer an appropriate means to assist/aid chemists and material designers(More)
This review highlights various design and synthesis approaches toward the construction of ZMOFs, which are metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with topologies and, in some cases, features akin to traditional inorganic zeolites. The interest in this unique subset of MOFs is correlated with their exceptional characteristics arising from the periodic pore systems(More)
Zeolite-like metal-organic frameworks (ZMOFs) are anionic, have readily exchangeable extra-framework cations, and can be constructed with a variety of organic linkers. ZMOFs therefore can be regarded as an excellent platform for systematic studies of the effect(s) of various structural factors on H(2) binding/interaction with porous metal-organic materials.(More)
The uniqueness of the rht-MOF platform, based on the singular (3,24)-connected net, allows for the facile design and synthesis of functionalized materials for desired applications. Here we designed a nitrogen-rich trefoil hexacarboxylate (trigonal tri-isophthalate) ligand, which serves to act as the trigonal molecular building block while concurrently(More)
A neutral, non-interpenetrated porous metal-organic framework (MOF) having (10,3)-a topology, Cu(3,5-PDC)(DMF)(py), (DMF =N,N'-dimethylformamide, py = pyridine), has been constructed via the assembly of the achiral tri-connected building blocks 3,5-pyridinedicarboxylate (3,5-PDC) and CuN(CO2)2, synthesized in situ. Similarly, a 2D structure having (6,3)(More)
Two novel porous zeolitelike metal-organic frameworks (ZMOFs) were constructed via the single metal ion-based molecular building block approach from rigid and directional tetrahedral building units and pyrimidinecarboxylate bridging ligands; their ion exchange and hydrogen sorption properties were evaluated.
