Abstract

A homochiral metal-organic framework (MOF) based on enantiopure (R)-2,2′-dihydroxy-1,1′-binaphthyl-3,3′-dicarboxylic acid was synthesized. X-ray crystal diffraction studies revealed that the MOF adopts a one-dimensional infinite right-handed helical tubular structure along the a-axis, which serves as a host for the inclusion of guest dimethylformamide (DMF) molecules.
Keywords: homochiral metal-organic framework; chiral ligand; helix structure; one-dimensional network homochiral metal-organic framework; chiral ligand; helix structure; one-dimensional network
