Abstract

The combination of tectons based on the [1111]metacyclophane backbone blocked the 1,3-alternate conformation bearing two imidazoly or pyrazolyl groups located on the same side with metal halide complexes leads to the formation of either discrete metallmacrobicycles or infinite 1-D coordination networks. The same backbone bearing two sets of two different coordinating poles composed of two pyridyl and two pyrazolyl units, owing to its non-centrosymmetric nature, forms a directional 2-D network packed in an anti-parallel fashion.
