(Figure Presented) Stack 'em up: Two coordination complexes - one a perfluoroarene-functionalized β-diketonate copper complex (purple, see picture), the other an arene-functionalized metal (M = Cu, Pd, Pt) complex (green) - form alternately layered arrays through arene-perfluoroarene interactions with metal-to-metal distances close to van der Waals contacts to give 1:1 cocrystals as one-dimensional metal wires.
