Porous molecular crystals by macrocyclic coordination supramolecules.


In this study, we show how the combination of metal ions, counter-anions and opportunely functionalized and preorganized ligands gives rise to two distinct supramolecular isomers, coordination polymeric chains and hexameric macrocycles. The hexamers then aggregate to form a cubic structure exhibiting permanent microporosity. The supramolecular assemblies… (More)
