A novel d–π conjugated two-dimensional metal–organic framework Cu3(HHTN)2 using a new ligand 2,3,8,9,14,15- hexahydroxytrinaphthylene was synthesized. The resulting material has a pore aperture of 2.5 nm, tunable electrical conductivity, and temperature-dependent band gap ranging from 0.75 to 1.65 eV.

Cu-TDPAT (H6TDPAT = 2,4,6-tris(3,5-dicarboxylphenylamino)- 1,3,5-triazine), a stable and versatile metal-organic framework with promising adsorption performance, shows unusual negative thermal expansion properties. We shed light on the mechanism of the observed negative thermal expansion (NTE) by a combination of comprehensive in situ characterization techniques.
