Via hydro(solvo)thermal synthesis, the self-assembly of Cd(NO3)2, L1 and L2 generated compound 1, Cd2(L1)(L2)2 (L1 = 1,1′-(1,4-butanediyl)bis(imidazole), L2 = pamoic acid) which presents an uncommon interpenetrating metal–organic framework in that it contains both rotaxane- and catenane-like motifs.
