Silver chalcogenide wires are assembled for the first time using a linear fluorinated carboxylate ligand into a metal-organic framework (MOF) with multifunctional properties. Fluorinated ligands in the host framework endow the MOF with excellent hydrophobicity. More interestingly, it displays typical semiconductivity due to the ordered nanoarray of non-discrete helical (-Ag-S-)n chains.
