Abstract

Crystal melting and glass formation of coordination polymers (CPs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are rare thermal events. To expand the library of melting CP/MOFs, we utilized anti-crystal engineering in ionic liquids to construct CPs. A combination of Cu+ and 4,4'-bipyridin-1-ium derivatives afforded four melting CPs showing stable liquid and glassy states.
