(Figure Presented) Networking with triazolate: Three new compounds containing networks of CuI or CuII ions linked by 1,2,4-triazolate (trz) ligands were prepared by hydrothermal synthesis. The microporous metal-organic framework {Cu33-OH)-(trz) 3(OH)2(H2O)4}n, which is built up from magnetic triangles, forms 17 x 13 x 13 Å3 cavities (see picture; Cu dark blue, O red, N light blue, C black).
