      Abstract:

      The cubchemioctahedral supermolecular building blocks, SBBS, of   formula  [M-6(bdc)(12)](12-) (M = Ni, Co) (as illustrated)   have the requisite  symmetry to be cross-linked by rigid   tetracarboxylalo ligands in such a  manner that 12-connected   fcv nets with nanoscale features are generated.    3,5-H(4)ATC, L1, facilitates a structure with Ni that exhibits   cavities  with > 2 nm maximum dimensions, whereas   H(4)BIPA-TC, L2, forms a net  with Co or Ni that exhibits   cavities with > 3 nm maximum dimensions.
