- ... The structure-directing role of the inorganic secondary building unit (SBU) is key for determining the topology of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). Here we show that organic building units relying on strong π interactions that are energetically competitive with the formation of common inorganic SBUs can also play a role in defining the topology. We demonstrate the importance of the organic SBU in ...
