Design and synthesis of metal-carboxylate frameworks with permanent microporosity

Abstract

Metal-carboxylate clusters are ideally suited as secondary building units (SBU) for the assembly of extended open frameworks. Examples extracted from the chemistry of the multidentate building block 1,4-benzenedicarboxylate (BDC) show that Zn(BDC) clusters lead to the formation of rigid, stable and truly microporous metal-carboxylate networks. Gas sorption isotherms measured for this class of materials show type (I) gas uptake that is analogous to those observed for zeolites and molecular sieves.
