[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Two Praseodymium-organic frameworks, [Pr-2(NDC)(2)(NO3)(2)(DMA)(4)] (1) and [Pr-3(NDC)(4.5)(DMF)(3)(H2O)] (2) (H2NDC = 2,6-naphthalenedicarboxylic acid; DMA = N,N-dimethylacetamide; DMF = N,N-dimethylformamide) have been synthesized and structurally characterized. The discrete Pr-2(COO)(4) cluster and 1D [Pr(COO)(3)](n) rod act as the secondary building units in MOF 1 and MOF 2, respectively, leading to their different structures of 2D sheet and 3D rod-packing. Their permanent porosities have been also established. ( C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A doubly interpenetrated semiconducting MOF Zn(4)O(2,6-NDC)(3)(DMF)(1.5)(H(2)O)(0.5)·4DMF·7.5H(2)O (UTSA-38) of a cubic net has been constructed, which exhibits photocatalytic activity for the degradation of methyl orange in aqueous solution.
