Influence of Interpenetration on the Flexibility of MUV-2

The crystal structure of an interpenetrated tetrathiafulvalene(TTF)- based metal-organic framework (MOF) is reported. This MOF, denoted MUV-2-i, is the interpenetrated analogue of the hierarchical and flexible MUV-2. Interestingly, the large flexibility exhibited by MUV-2 upon polar solvent adsorption is considerably reduced in the interpenetrated form which can be explained by short S···S interactions between adjacent TTF-based ligands ensuring more rigidity to the framework. In addition, porosity of MUV-2-i significantly decreased in comparison to MUV-2 as shown by the reduced free volume in the crystal structure.
