By intimate control of reaction conditions, phase-pure crystalline porous metal-organic framework materials [Zn 4O(L) 3] with interpenetrated and non-interpenetrated structures can be synthesised. Under certain conditions, these reactions occur with concomitant deprotection of masked alcohols located on the organic links which yield accessible metal-binding functional groups within the frameworks.
