Title

Homochiral, Helical Metal-organic Framework Structures Organized by Strong, Non-covalent Π-π Stacking Interactions

Abstract

A new trifunctional ligand, Lala, containing a carboxylate donor group, a homochiral center derived from l-alanine and a strong π-π stacking, 1,8-naphthalimide synthon, has been used to prepare the copper(ii) complex [Cu(Lala)2(4,4′-bipy)(H2O) 2]·4.25H2O that has a homochiral, helical, supramolecular metal-organic framework 3-D structure, organized in one dimension solely by strong non-covalent forces. © 2009 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
