The design, synthesis and crystallisation properties of molecular tectons that are capable of participating in the formation of 3D supramolecular architectures are outlined with two distinct aspects of research presented. A series of molecules which contain both hydrogen bond acceptor and donor sites is synthesised to test the scope of ligands to form porous supramolecular organic frameworks (SOFs). Two analogous tripodal tri carboxylate ligands which are able to form coordination complexes in both a convergent and a divergent mode of coordination are synthesised and their formation of complexes with a variety of metal salts is described.
