EarlyViewNew Entangled Coordination Networks Based on Charge-Tunable Keggin-Type Polyoxometalates

The combination of transition metal ions, bis(triazole) bridging ligands, and various charge-tunable Keggin-type polyoxometalates (POMs) led to the isolation of new entangled coordination networks. The structures of the obtained compounds vary from “zipper-closing” packing to 3D polythreading, 3D polycatenation, and 3D self-penetration, respectively. An increase in the POM negative charges not only increased the number of nodes in the coordination networks but also led to increasingly complicated basic metal–organic building motifs.
