In recent years, great demands have shifted towards the construction of low cost, porous homochiral metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) that are highly efficient in applications such as asymmetric catalysis and chiral separation. In the study of chiral organic linkers, RS-camphoric acid has been extensively utilized and can be considered as among the most well-known. In comparison, studies on its diastereoisomer, isocamphorate, are still virtually unknown. Here, we demonstrate the ability of isocamphorate to partake in isoreticular synthesis, as well as forming unprecedented framework structures. We also reveal the feasibility of combining isocamphorate with the rapidly growing library of achiral ligands to diversify the network topological types. In total, we report eighteen novel homochiral frameworks with the potential to serve as efficient reagents for enantioselective applications.
