Abstract

A porous copper coordination framework grew epitaxially as a single crystal on the surface of a single crystal of a porous zinc coordination framework, as described by S. Kitagawa and co-workers in their Communication on page 1766 ff. The picture shows the structural relationship between the copper and zinc frameworks, which has been unveiled by synchrotron surface X-ray diffraction measurements; in-plane rotational epitaxial growth compensates for the different lattice constants of the two crystals.
