  • Zigzag Ligands for Transversal Design in Reticular Chemistry: Unveiling New Structural Opportunities for Metal-Organic Frameworks

    Guillerm V., Grancha T., Imaz I., Juanhuix J., Maspoch D. Journal of the American Chemical Society; 140 (32): 10153 - 10157. 2018. 10.1021/jacs.8b07050.

    Herein we describe the topological influence of zigzag ligands in the assembly of Zr(IV) metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Through a transversal design strategy using reticular chemistry, we were able to synthesize a family of isoreticular Zr(IV)-based MOFs exhibiting the bcu - rather than the fcu - topology. Our findings underscore the value of the transversal parameter in organic ligands for dictating MOF architectures. © 2018 American Chemical Society.
