Cu(3)(BTC)(2) with an incorporated Keggin polyoxometalate was demonstrated to be stable under steaming conditions up to 483 K, while the isostructural HKUST-1 degrades and transforms into [Cu(2)OH(BTC)(H(2)O)](n)·2nH(2)O from 343 K onwards.

    ABSTRACT: A Cu(II)-phenanthroline connected Strandberg-type polyoxometalate based proton conducting MOF, Cu(3)Mo(5)P(2), that contains one dimensional parallel water channels has been reported. Cu(3)Mo(5)P(2) shows proton conduction at room temperature as well as elevated temperature.

    ABSTRACT: Synthesis of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF), highlighting routes to various MOF topologies, morphologies, and composites, is discussed. A systematic High-throughput (HT) investigation of Ni-based paddle wheel containing MOFs was conducted using H3BTC, H3BTB, and the mixedlinker system H2BDC/DABCO. The kinetics of crystallizations of both MOFs was examined by the Gualtieri model, which allowed separation of the nucleation and growth regimes. In a recent report on IRMOF-1, the MW-assisted method yielded higher quality crystals with better CO 2 adsorption properties, compared to the ambient pressure dynamic CE synthesis. Zn-based, mixed-linker MOFs with the composition [M 2(dicarboxylate) 2 (diamine)] exhibit pillared-layered structures, i.e., 2D metal carboxylate sheets containing inorganic paddle wheel units are pillared by ditopic amines.

    ABSTRACT: A Cu(II) connected V4O16-cubane based metal organic framework, Cu2(phen)2(V4O8)(PO4)4 [Cu2V4O16-2D] was synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. This is the first example of transition metal connected V4O16-cubane based MOF. X-ray single crystal data shows the alternate arrangement V4O16-cubane and Cu(phen)(O)3 square pyramidal unit in two dimensions. These two-dimensional sheets are stacked on top of each other to form a three-dimensional architecture. Cu2V4O16-2D shows two types of solid state morphologies of the same phase, which was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy. It is noteworthy that this type of morphological difference of the solid phase in an extended metal–organic hybrid material is rare and has not been perceived in the polyoxovanadate based MOFs literature. Cu2V4O16-2D was further characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), IR-spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and elemental analysis. We also studied the static magnetic and gas adsorption properties for Cu2V4O16-2D.
