A nanoporous framework with internal surface lined with amino acid residue is produced by the pillaring of nickel-aspartate layers by 4,4'-bipyridine. The presence of pockets capable of multiple interactions with guest species permits the enantioselective sorption of short-chain diols. [on SciFinder(R)]
