Abstract

original image

A handy approach: A new synthetic approach starting from readily available chemicals successfully produces a robust homochiral metal–organic microporous framework. The material exhibits size- and enantioselective guest-sorption properties (see picture), as well as remarkable catalytic activity with size- and chemoselectivity, and high conversion in the oxidation of thioethers to sulfoxides.
