A triptycene-based porous hydrogen-bonded organic framework for guest incorporation with tailored fitting

By employing a robust and non-coplanar building block strategy, a triptycene-based hydrogen-bonded organic framework was constructed with almost no sacrifice of molecular surfaces, and it was capable of incorporating C60 molecules in high concentration in the channels with tailored fitting.

Construction of 2D covalent organic frameworks by taking advantage of the variable orientation of imine bonds

A model has been established to construct covalent organic frameworks (COFs) by taking advantage of the variable orientation of imine bonds, from which an unprecedented heterodromous orientation of C[double bond, length as m-dash]N linkages in the COFs was observed.
