Significant recent attention has been devoted to the development of useful self-assembled hybrid materials.[1] This is particularly the case for metala??organic frameworks (MOFs), which display properties such as regularity, porosity, robustness, and high surface area that lead to potential applications in areas such as catalysis, gas separation, and storage.[2, 3] Our research groups and others have been developing new methods for the synthesis of both discrete and extended metala??organic materials, with particular interest in the controlled generation of increased structural complexity.[4]
