Hydrogen-bonded Hexagonal Buckybowl Framework

We report a hydrogen-bonded two-dimensionally networked buckybowl architecture for the first time. Two types of hexagonal network (HexNet) structures (CPSM-1 and -2) have been achieved based on a sumanene derivative (CPSM) possessing 4,4'-dicarboxy-o-terphenyl groups in the periphery. CPSM-1 has a waved HexNet structure with an alternate alignment of upward and downward bowls. CPSM-2 has a bilayered HexNet structure composed of hamburger-shaped dimers of the bowls. This demonstrates that non-planar π-systems can be networked two-dimensionally by an appropriate supramolecular synthon to achieve structurally well-defined unique bumpy π-sheets. Furthermore, we revealed that CPSM-2 undergoes anisotropic shrinking along the c axis by 11% under high pressure conditions (970 MPa). The shrinkage is brought about by offset sliding between bumpy π-surfaces of the bilayered HexNet sheets.
