Abstract

The first porous molecular conductor (PMC), which exhibits porosity, a through-space conduction pathway and rich charge carriers (electrons), was prepared through electrocrystallization from Cd2+ and N,N′-di(4-pyridyl)-1,4,5,8-naphthalenetetracarboxdiimide (NDI-py). [Cd(NDI-py)(OH2)4](NO3)1.3±0.1·nDMA (PMC-1) was assembled by Ï-Ï stacking among one-dimensional (1D) linear coordination polymers. The NDI cores were partially reduced into radical anions to form conductive Ï-stacked columns, yielding (1.0-3.3) × 10-3 S cm-1 at room temperature. Moreover, the electrical conductivity was significantly enhanced by removing the solvent molecules from PMC-1, indicating that PMCs are promising as molecule-responsive conductive materials. ©
