      Abstract: m-Terphenyls are mols. with a central   Ph ring possessing at least two meta aryl substituents. These   substituents twist out of the plane of the central Ph ring to   form a bowl-shaped environment in which a metal or functional   group can be attached. Due to the unusually effective steric   protection provided by the m-terphenyl ligands, complexes   featuring these ligands often exhibit rare or unique coordination   patterns. Furthermore, because of their bulky and rigid nature,   m-terphenyl ligands also have potentially interesting uses in   many areas of materials chem. including coordinatively unsatd.   metal-org. frameworks. Here we report our success at   incorporating the unusual coordination patterns of m-terphenyls   into a variety of one-dimensional coordination polymers and   two-dimensional networks based upon 2,6-diphenyl-1,4-dibenzoic   acid (Ph2BDC) with various metals and/or org. mols. Shown below   is an example of a 2-D network formed by the reaction of Ph2BDC   with Zn(NO3)2. [on SciFinder(R)]
