The Borromean system, which contains nontrivial three ring links (no ring is interlocked to another without the help of the third one), is a very intriguing pattern of crystal entanglements, because of the topological complexity, structural integrity, and aesthetic beauty. Herein we report the rational construction of Borromean three-fold 2D-2D entangled layers and n-Borromean 2D-3D entangled infinite layers with pure organic supramolecular synthons based on hydrogen-bond-directed self assembly.
