Metalloporphyrin Molecular Sieves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Crystal-engineering strategies have been systematically developed for the rational design by self-assembly of diverse metalloporphyrin molecular-sieve materials. Cooperative coordination and hydrogen bonding algorithms of molecular recognition proved particularly useful for this aim. The supramolecular concepts used in the construction of stable nanoporous solids and some unique sieve-type structures obtained thus far are illustrated.
