A family of bamboo-like metal-organic nanotubes consisting of in situ synthesized macromolecular blocks (MB) is reported. The MBs are composed of six fac-(CO)(3)Re cores, one benzene-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexaolate plate, and six pyridine-derivative pillar ligands, which have a doubly tri-legged geometry and can be mutually assembled, piece by piece. This entire system is characterized as a simple but precise supramolecular complexation of these macromolecular blocks and further introduces an archetypal approach to systematically constructing a tunable form of dissectible molecular bamboo tubes.
