Dalton Trans. 2015 Jun 14;44(22):10156-65. doi: 10.1039/c4dt03087g.A novel chiral metal-organic framework, [Cu4(HL)2(H2O)4(MeO)4]n (), has been successfully synthesized from a tripodal flexible ligand (2S,2'S,2''S)-2,2',2''-(benzenetricarbonyltris(azanediyl))tripropanoic acid (H3L). Compound was characterized by IR and X-ray powder diffraction analysis. The structure was determined by X-ray single crystal diffraction analysis revealing that possesses a 3D network, featuring a tetranuclear cubane-type secondary building block [Cu4(MeO)4](4+), formed via the connection of four metal ions to four methoxide ions.
