Controlling guests: Porous coordination polymers containing mobile organic groups, such as naphthalene rings (see picture), are synthesized, and their rotational motion is characterized by solid-state 2H NMR spectroscopy. The rotation of the groups can be switched off (blue) by guest (blue spheres) adsorption and switched on (yellow) again by guest desorption.
