- An anionic metal–organic framework, PCN-99, has been synthesized through a topology-guided strategy; its underlying bor-net is realized by the use of a tetrahedral [In(COO)₄]⁻ node and a judiciously designed trigonal planar linker. In light of its anionic nature, the inherent cuboctahedral cage and 1D channel make PCN-99 an excellent matrix to encapsulate the photocatalytic [Ru(bpy)₃]²⁺.
