pi-Interpenetrated 3D Covalent Organic Frameworks from Distorted Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons


Three-dimensional covalent organic frameworks (3D COFs) with a pcu topology have been obtained from distorted polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons acting as triangular antiprismatic (D-3d) nodes. Such 3D COFs are six-fold interpenetrated as the result of interframework pi-stacking, which enable charge transport properties that are not expected for 3D COFs.
