We report the synthesis, structure and physicochemical attributes of a new holmium(iii)-based metal-organic framework whose 3D network structure gives rise to porosity; the reported structure-type can be varied using a range of different lanthanide ions to tune the photophysical properties and produce ligand-sensitised near-infrared (NIR) and visible light emitters.
