Abstract: Two-dimensional (2D) grid coordination polymers were prepared by the reaction of 1,4-bis(4-pyridylmethyl)tetrafluorobenzene (bpf) with Cu(NO3)2 in the presence of aromatic compounds. Crystal structures of {[Cu(bpf)2(NO3)2]·(biphenyl)2}n (1), {[Cu(bpf)2(NO3)2]·(m-C6H4(OMe)2)2}n (2), {[Cu(bpf)2(NO3)2]·PhtBu}n (3) and {[Cu(bpf)2(NO3)(H2O)]NO3·(bpf)0.5}n (4) were determined. The grid networks were held together by C–H···O and C–H···F hydrogen bonds via the NO3 anions and the tetrafluorophenylene rings of bpf, respectively. Biphenyl, m-dimethoxybenzene, t-butylbenzene, and bpf molecules were clathrated in cyclic cavities of the grid networks through arene-perfluoroarene interactions. These coordination networks have remarkable clathration ability for aromatic compounds.
Keywords: porous coordination networks; metal-organic frameworks; X-ray crystal structure
