Functional organic ligands play an important role in constructing multifunctional Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) materials. Most of these ligands contain benzene rings and specific functional groups such as –NH2, –COOH, –CONH; however, ligands composed of inherent homochiral moieties are relative rare. By incorporating the homochiral moieties and other functional groups into the ligands for MOF construction, the obtained materials may aid homochirality and other functionalities, which may broaden their range of applications. Herein, we have designed a chiral ligand by successfully combining the chiral camphoric moiety and acylamide group with synthesized homochiral MOF material. The chiral camphoric group imparts homochirality to the MOF and the acylamide group enables interactions between the framework and guest molecules. Finally, the obtained product has the capacity to separate water from alcohol and View the paper
