Abstract

A new MOF, [Zn 4O(Cu(L) 2) 2] (1), with a 4-fold interpenetrated 3D diamondoid structure was synthesised from in situ generated [Cu(L) 2] NHC linkers. MOF 1 possesses tetrahedral Zn 4O nodes, which are unusually coordinated by four pairs of carboxylates from four [Cu(L) 2] linkers, and 14 å 1-D pore channels lined with [Cu(L) 2] moieties that catalyse the hydroboration of CO 2.
