Triazine based eccentric Piedfort units towards a single source hydrogen bonded network†
Herein we report a hydrogen-bonded three-dimensional network originating from a single source precursor, sym-triisopropylaminotriazine, that is both a donor and an acceptor of hydrogen bonds. The C3h symmetric design allowed the formation of intermolecular hydrogen bonds leading to helices in all three directions. The eccentric Piedfort units present in the framework with a distance of 8.15 Å between the two triazine rings allowed the CHCl3 guest to be parked.
