Pyrene is one of the most widely investigated aromatic hydrocarbons due to its unique optical and electronic properties. Hence, pyrene-based ligands have been investigated for the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in the last few years. This dataset collects the atomic structures of the pyrene-based MOFs discussed in Table 1 of Ref. 1. The crystal structures have been manually curated to resolve partial occupancies and remove solvent molecules. Charge-neutral structures were optimized using DFT following the CURATED protocol described in 10.1021/acscentsci.9b00619.
