We demonstrate a design for halogen-bonded metal−organic cocrystals involving coordinatively unsaturated square-planar Cu(II) and Ni(II) centers, by utilizing a Schiff base ligand whose pendant acetyl group enables halogen bonding. The robustness of this design is evident by the assembly of a large family of eight cocrystals involving mono- or ditopic halogen bond donors based on iodine or bromine.
