Abstract

The occurrence of interpenetration in metal–organic and inorganic networks has been investigated by a systematic analysis of the CSD and ICSD structural databases. For this purpose, a novel version of TOPOS (a program package for multipurpose crystallochemical analysis) has been employed, where the procedure of recognition of interpenetrating nets is based on the representation of a crystal structure as a finite reduced graph. In this paper we report a comprehensive list (301 Refcodes) of interpenetrating metal–organic 3D structures from CSD, that are analyzed on the basis of their topologies. Interesting trends and novel features have been observed and distinct classes of interpenetrating nets have been envisaged, depending on the relationships of the individual motifs.
