What is it about?
Making rigid materials using flexible ligands is not a 'normal' strategy to employ. Whilst the unpredictability can be detrimental (and folding can close off potential pore space) we have shown that sometimes this approach can work, to yield materials that are stable and tolerant to gas exchange.
