A class of γ-cyclodextrin-containing hybrid frameworks (CD-HFs) has been synthesized, employing γ-cyclodextrin (γ-CD) as the primary building blocks, along with 4-methoxysalicylate (4-MS) anions as the secondary building blocks. CD-HFs are constructed through the synergistic exploitation of coordinative, electrostatic, and dispersive forces. The syntheses have been carried out using an organic counteranion co-assembly strategy, which allows for the introduction of 4-MS, in place of inorganic OH, into the cationic γ-CD-containing metal-organic frameworks (CD-MOFs). Although the packing arrangement of the γ-CD tori in the solid-state superstructure of CD-HFs is identical to that of the previously reported CD-MOFs, CD-HFs crystallize with lower symmetry and in the cuboid space group 422-when compared to CD-MOF-1, which has the cubic unit cell of 432 space group-on account of the chiral packing of the 4-MS anions in the CD-HF superstructures. Importantly, CD-HFs have ultramicroporous apertures associated with the pore channels, a significant deviation from CD-MOF-1, as a consequence of the contribution from the 4-MS anions, which serve as supramolecular baffles. In gas adsorption-desorption experiments, CD-HF-1 exhibits a Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area of 306 m g for CO at 195 K, yet does not uptake N at 77 K, confirming the difference in porosity between CD-HF-1 and CD-MOF-1. Furthermore, the 4-MS anions in CD-HF-1 can be exchanged with OH anions, leading to an irreversible single-crystal to single-crystal transformation, with rearrangement of coordinated metal ions. Reversible transformations were also observed in CD-MOF-1 when OH ions were exchanged for 4-MS anions, with the space group changing from 432 to 32. This organic counteranion co-assembly strategy opens up new routes for the construction of hybrid frameworks, which are inaccessible by existing MOF assembly methodologies.

Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.
