Abstract

Stuck on you: Preferred (110) and (001) orientation of enantiopure [{Zn 2((+)cam) 2(dabco)} n] ((+)cam=(1R,3S)-(+)- camphoric acid, dabco=1,4-diazabicyclo(2.2.2)octane) thin films can be controlled by carboxylate and pyridyl groups on self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). With a quartz crystal microbalance, the enantioselective adsorption of enantiomeric hexanediol pairs by enantiopure surface-attached metal-organic frameworks (SURMOF) [Zn 2((±)cam) 2(dabco)] pairs can be demonstrated (see picture).
