A robust and unique iron(ii) mosaic-like MOF

Author affiliations


A novel extended triazole-based ligand (PM-Tria) has been synthesized and an unprecedented MOF 3D has serendipitously been formed by assembling iron(II), PM-Tria ligand and fluoride anions. This MOF contains a perfectly linear one-dimensional {Fe(II)–F}n bridging chain that shows an antiferromagnetic behaviour. Furthermore, the structure is compared with a 14th century mosaic found in the Alhambra Palace in Granada showing a surprising symmetry resemblance.
