Pressure-Responsive Curvature Change of a “Rigid” Geodesic Ligand in a (3,24)-Connected Mesoporous Metal–Organic Framework Academic Article uri icon


  • A (3,24)-connected mesoporous metal-organic framework, PCN-69, was synthesized by linking a hexatopic ligand btti with dicopper paddlewheel clusters. This material has rigid connectivity but a flexible framework, which has been attributed to a curvature change of the ligand.
