Furukawa S, Ohba M, Kitagawa S. Rational synthesis of a two-dimensional honeycomb structure based on a paramagnetic paddlewheel diruthenium complex. Chem Commun (Camb). 2005;(7):865-7.
A novel 2-D coordination polymer with honeycomb (6,3) net topology is constructed from a paramagnetic paddlewheel diruthenium tetrabenzoate, [RuII2(O2CPh)4], as a linear linker motif and triazine as a three-connected node; the RuII2 cores are positioned on nodes of a 2-D Kagome lattice.
