Anion-directed assembly of a non-interpenetrated square-grid metal-organic framework with nanoscale porosity.


A non-interpenetrated square grid metal-organic framework (MOF) comprised of octahedral Zn(II) ions and linear N,N'-di(4-pyridyl)-1,4,5,8-naphthalenediimide (DPNDI) ligands was formed in the presence of noncoordinating perchlorate counterions that occupied the cavities of the porous network by forming CH···anion hydrogen bonds with DPNDI ligands, whereas a… (More)
