Abstract

Interesting MOPs! TWo isostructural framework structures built from novel Keplerate-type 3d-4f heterometalorganic polyhedra (HMOPs), both with hydrophilic and hydrophobic pores of nanoscopic dimensions, have been obtained. The 36-metal HMOPs display an aesthetically pleasing double-Archimedean solid structure characterized by a cuboctahedron encapsulating a rhombicuboctahedron (see figure). (Figure Presented)
