Abstract

A solid-state approach that takes advantage of the ordered 3D arrangement of active secondary building units allows the preparation of new interlocked MOFs that grow hetero-epitaxially on the crystal faces of a precursor phase that acts as a "topological blueprint". The synthetic strategy is exemplified by using rigid acetylene-based ligands to produce highly augmented CuII acetate-based MOFs.
