A two-dimensional chiral open framework, [Ni(LR,R)]3[C6H3(COO)3]2·12H2O·CH3CN (3), is prepared from a nickel(II) macrocyclic complex with chiral pendants and benzenetricarboxylate in MeCN/H2O and characterized [LR,R = 1,8-bis[(R)-α-methylbenzyl]-1,3,6,8,10,13-hexaazacyclotetradecane]. The open framework shows selective chiral recognition by interactions between the solid 3 and rac-1,1′-bi-2-naphthol.
