Epub 2015 Jul 1.A series of highly luminescent-active metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) 1-3 with hierarchical pores have been rationally constructed and fully characterized. The predesigned semi-rigid hexacarboxylate ligand hexa[4-(carboxyphenyl)oxamethyl]-3-oxapentane acid (H6 L) has been adapted with various space-directed N donors (i.e., 2,2'-bipyridine, 4,4'-di(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-1,1'-biphenyl, and 1,3,5-tri(1H-imidazol-1-yl)benzene) from a bidentate V-shape to a tridentate Y-shape.
