Three perfluorinated Cu-based metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) were prepared starting from extensively fluorinated biphenyl-based ligands accessed via C–H functionalization. These new materials are highly hydrophobic: with water contact angles of up to 151 ± 1°, they are among the most water-repellent MOFs ever reported.
