The insertion of alkali metal ions into a prevalent lanthanide-carboxylate coordination motif in heterometallic 3d-4f metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) leads to new MOFs whose structures are sensitively dependent on the size of the alkali ions used and with significantly enhanced effective free crystallographic volume.
