Abstract

Diamondoid nanoporous crystals represent a synthetically challenging class of materials that typically have been obtained from tetrahedral building blocks. In this issue of Chem, Stoddart and coworkers demonstrate that it is possible to generate diamondoid frameworks from a hexacationic building block lacking a tetrahedral symmetry. These results highlight the great potential of self-assembly for rapidly transforming small molecules into structurally complex functional materials.
