Rational design of MOFs is a complex task with a range of variables including ligands, metals, reaction conditions and solvents, this HOT Communication in Dalton Trans. details the synthesis of a novel metal organic framework (MOF) using an aromatic linker and CdBr2. Leonard Barbour and Marike du Plessis synthesised the framework with different solvents and discovered different packing modes for the different solvent systems…… to find out more about their discoveries read the full Communication in Dalton Transactions.
