Xu C, Hedin N, Shi HT, Zhang QF. A semiconducting microporous framework of Cd6Ag4(SPh)16 clusters interlinked using rigid and conjugated bipyridines. Chem Commun (Camb). 2014;.
Ternary supertetrahedral chalcogenolate clusters were interlinked with bipyridines into a microporous semiconducting framework with properties qualitatively different from those of the original clusters. Both the framework and the clusters were effective photocatalysts, and rapidly degraded the dye rhodamine B.
