Design and synthesis of nucleobase-incorporated metal–organic materials Academic Article uri icon


  • © The Royal Society of Chemistry. Two nucleobase-incorporated metal-organic materials were designed, synthesized and structurally characterized. PCN-530 is among the few examples of metal-organic frameworks that utilize adenine as a constructional unit, while TMOP-1 is the first existing example of a crystallographically characterized nucleobase-incorporated metal-organic polyhedron. This work also offers a general perspective for the design and synthesis of nucleobase-incorporated metal-organic materials.
