Abstract

A new trifunctional ligand, Lala, containing a carboxylate donor group, a homochiral center derived from L-alanine and a strong π–π stacking, 1,8-naphthalimide synthon, has been used to prepare the copper(II) complex [Cu(Lala)2(4,4′-bipy)(H2O)2]·4.25H2O that has a homochiral, helical, supramolecular metal–organic framework 3-D structure, organized in one dimension solely by strong non-covalent forces.
