Title: Robust, transformable, and crystalline single-node organometallic networks constructed from ditopic m-terphenyl isocyanides

Here, the preparation of 3D and 2D Cu(I) coordination networks using ditopic m-terphenyl isocyanides is described. The incorporation of sterically encumbering substituents enables the controlled, solid-state preparation of Cu(I) tris-isocyanide nodes with a labile solvent ligand in a manner mirroring solution-phase chemistry of monomeric complexes. The protection afforded by the m-terphenyl groups is also shown to engender significant stability towards heat as well as acidic or basic conditions, resulting in robust single-metal-node networks that can transition from 3D to 2D extended structures.
