      The wheels in the MOF go round and round: A new [2]rotaxane linker allows for formation of a MOF framework (UWDM-5) in which there is sufficient void space for the dynamic motions of the interlocked [24]crown-6 ether wheel (see figure). Upon heating, the “soft” ring undergoes a series of conformational changes and rotations about the “rigid” MOF framework.

      Channel swap: A series of isostructural 3D microporous lanthanide metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with multiple 1D channels were prepared under solvothermal conditions. Upon cation exchange, tunable luminescence and white-light emission were achieved by adjusting the relative amount of Eu3+ and Tb3+ ions encapsulated in the Gd framework (see figure). Moreover, the Eu framework can be explored as a potential luminescent material for sensing metal ions, especially Fe2+ and Fe3+.

      Impact sub: Thienyl substituents on diketopyrrolopyrroles (TDPPs) are considered to be more efficient at π-conjugation than phenyl substituents, reducing the band gap between singlet and triplet states. This can greatly facilitate intersystem crossing and enhance the generation of reactive oxygen species. TDPP conjugated with methoxy poly(ethylene glycol) has excellent water solubility, biocompatibility and photostability, and significantly inhibited tumor growth upon irradiation with light.
