An unprecedented eight-connected self-penetrating network based on pentanuclear zinc cluster building blocks

An unprecedented eight-connected self-penetrating network is constructed based on pentanuclear zinc cluster building blocks and linear dicarboxylate linkers. This 3D network defines a new self-penetrating topology for eight-connected networks and represents the highest connected topology presently known for self-penetrating systems.
