A flexible thioether-based MOF as a crystalline sponge for structural characterization of liquid organic molecules

Herein, we present a flexible MOF (PCN-41) composed of a thioether-based linker. By the virtue of the low symmetry, structural flexibility, and the electron-rich cavity environment, PCN-41 exhibits crystalline sponge behavior toward a series of electron-deficient liquid molecules.

Tuning the stacking behaviour of a 2D covalent organic framework through non-covalent interactions

The distinct stacking behaviour of two related 2D covalent organic frameworks is traced back to geometric and electronic features of their building blocks. Self-complementarity and donor–acceptor-type interactions are identified as design principles to access highly crystalline COFs.

The ‘folklore’ and reality of reticular chemistry

The field of reticular chemistry is rapidly expanding and, as is true for any emerging field, there exists ‘folklores’ that permeate through the scientific discourse. It is within this context that we seek to address these ‘folklores’ in order to provide the realities of reticular chemistry.
