Chemical Functionalization of covalent organic frameworks (COFs) is critical to tune their properties and broaden their potential applications. However, the introduction of functional groups especially in three-dimensional (3D) COFs still remains largely unexplored. Here we report a general strategy for generating a 3D carboxyl-functionalized COF through postsynthetic modification of a hydroxyl COF, and for the first time explore the carboxyl COF for selective extraction of lanthanide ions. The obtained COF shows high crystalllinity, good chemical stability, and large specific surface area...

Selective adsorption and separation of CO2 from flue gas and landfill gas mixtures have drawn great attention in industry. Porous MOF materials are promising alternatives to achieve such separations, however, the stability in presence of moisture must be taken into consideration. Here, we have constructed a microporous MOF {[Co(OBA)(L)0.5]·S}n (IITKGP-8), by employing a V-shaped organic linker with a azo functionalized N,N' spacer forming a 3D network with mab topology and 1D rhombus-shaped channels along crystallographic 'b' axis with void volume of 34...

Three new Al-MOFs in the formation of [Al4(OH)2(OCH3)4(OH-BDC)3]·xH2O (BIT-72), [Al4(OH)2(OCH3)4(CH3-BDC)3]·xH2O (BIT-73) and {Al4(OH)2(OCH3)4[(CH3)2-BDC]3}·xH2O (BIT-74) have been synthesized by assembling Al3+ ion with terephthalic acid ions decorated with monohydroxyl, monomethyl or dimethyl groups, respectively. All of these three MOFs exhibit high stability in boiling water and acidic conditions. Among them, BIT-72 shows the highest surface area of 1618 m2·g-1 and IAST CO2/N2 selectivity of 48, while BIT-73 and BIT-74 present moderate IAST CO2/N2 selectivity and much lower H2O capacity below P/P0 = 0...

A novel hybrid material constituted of MIL-101(Cr) and mesoporous silica was successfully assembled through an in-situ hydrothermal method. The MCM-41 with well-ordered mesopores acted as the structure-directing agent, which regulated the growth of MIL-101(Cr) crystals along a certain direction and restricted the expansion of framework. Meanwhile, the hydroxyl groups existed in MCM-41 preferentially coordinated with the Cr3+ centers in MOF, followed by the layer-packed arrangement of MIL-101(Cr) nanocrystals on the surface of matrix...

In recent years, the design and discovery of new MOF platforms with distinct structural features and tunable chemical composition has remarkably enhanced by applying reticular chemistry rules and the molecular building block (MBB) ap-proach. We targeted the synthesis of new RE-MOF platforms based on a rectangular shaped 4-c linker, acting as a rigid organic MBB. Accordingly, we designed and synthesized the organic ligand 1,2,4,5-tetrakis(4-carboxyphenyl)-3,6-dimethyl-benzene, H4L, in which the two methyl groups attached to the central phenyl ring, lock the four peripheral carboxyphenyl groups to an orthogonal/vertical position...

A series of conjugated microporous polymers (CMPs) based on 1,3,6,8-tetrabromocarbazole (N4CMP-1-5) is synthesized via Suzuki cross-coupling or Sonogashira polycondensation. The porosity properties and surface area of these polymer networks can be finely tuned by using a linker with different geometries or strut length. These polymers show the Brunauer-Emmett-Tellerthe (BET) surface areas ranging from 592 to 1426 m(2) g(-1). The dominant pore sizes of the polymers on the basis of the different linker are located between 0...

High quality crystalline Co-CUK-1 can be synthesized rapidly and efficiently by a microwave-assisted method. The resulting microporous coordination material is a highly effective adsorbent for the separation of xylene isomers and ethylbenzene, as demonstrated here through sorption isotherm analysis, Ideal Adsorbed Solution Theory (IAST) calculations, and grand canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) simulations. Co-CUK-1 showed high sorption capacity and high adsorption selectivity for p-xylene over the corresponding m- and o-isomers, and ethylbenzenes...

In the third part of this series of studies, the adsorption of the basic textile dyes auramine-O (AO) and safranin-T (ST) on a carboxylated cellulose derivative (CTA) were evaluated in mono- and bi-component spiked aqueous solutions. Adsorption studies were developed as a function of solution pH, contact time, and initial dye concentration. Adsorption kinetic data were modeled by monocomponent kinetic models of pseudo-first- (PFO), pseudo-second-order (PSO), intraparticle diffusion, and Boyd, while the competitive kinetic model of Corsel was used to model bicomponent kinetic data...

Pre-mRNA splicing further increases protein diversity acquired through evolution. The underlying driving forces for this phenomenon are unknown, especially in terms of gene expression. A rice alternatively spliced transcript detection microarray (ASDM) and RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) were applied to differentiate the transcriptome of 4 representative organs of Oryza sativa L. cv. Ilmi: leaves, roots, 1-cm-stage panicles and young seeds at 21 days after pollination. Comparison of data obtained by microarray and RNA-Seq showed a bell-shaped distribution and a co-lineation for highly expressed genes...

A robust indium-organic framework (InOF-15) with open metal sites and Lewis basic sites has been successfully synthesized using a quinoline-based dicarboxylic acid. Moreover, it exhibits high IAST selective CO2 sorption from CO2/CH4 and CO2/N2 mixtures at 273 K, which has been attributed to the coexistence of OMSs and LBSs with strong synergistic effects.

The metal-organic framework [Y(tbpp)]·nDMF (1) was synthesized from yttrium(III) nitrate and the tritopic linker tris(4'-carboxy[1,1'-biphenyl]-4-yl)phosphine (H3tbpp). The distance between the coordinating atoms of the carboxylate groups of the extended tridentate phosphine linker is more than 1.8 nm, resulting in an average pore dimension of 0.9 nm in the noninterpenetrated metal-organic framework. The material exhibits high thermal stability and permanent porosity after removal of guest molecules from the one-dimensional pore system...

In this paper, boron and copper heteroatoms were successfully incorporated into the frameworks of high-silica RHO zeolite by adopting a bulky alkali metal-crown ether (AMCE) complex as the template. As a consequence, these heteroatom-doped zeolites show both larger micropore surface areas and volumes than those of their aluminosilicate analogue. Proton-type RHO zeolites were then applied for separation of CO2 / CH4 / N2 mixtures so as to weaken the electric field of these zeolites and then decrease the adsorption heat...

By means of modulating the axial ligand and adopting supermolecular building blocks (SBBs) strategy, two polyhedron-based metal-organic frameworks (PMOFs) have been successfully synthesized [Cu6(C17O9N2H8)3(C6H12N2)(H2O)2(DMF)2]·3DMF·8H2O (JLU-Liu46) and [Cu6(C17O9N2H8)3(C4H4N2)(H2O)2(DMF)2]·3DMF·8H2O (JLU-Liu47), which possess a high density of Lewis basic sites (LBSs) and open metal sites (OMSs). Since the size of axial ligand in JLU-Liu47 is smaller than that in JLU-Liu46, JLU-Liu47 shows larger pore volume and higher BET surface area...

The removal of acetylene from the industrial feed gas to purify the ethylene is an important and challenging issue. The adsorption-based separation is a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective method compared to the current removal approaches such as partial hydrogenation and solvent extraction, while facing the challenge of developing materials with high C2H2/C2H4 selectivity and C2H2 capacity. Herein, by expanding mixed-metal organic frameworks (M'MOFs) structure with high C2H2/C2H4 selectivity, we report a pillar-layered MOF, {[Cd5(MPCZ)2(BDC)3(NO3)2(H2O)4]·G}n (MECS-5), which not only inherits the sieving effects of M'MOF series but also develops its own characteristic-the 2D layer with expanding space and the plane pore-partition group to "cover" it...

A new copper-based metal-organic framework [Cu2L(H2O)2]·5DMF·2H2O (ZJNU-56) has been solvothermally synthesized using a custom-designed asymmetric rigid bent diisophthalate ligand, 5,5'-(1-amine-naphthyl-2,4-diyl) diisophthalic acid (H4L), and structurally determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. ZJNU-56 features a three-dimensional (3D) open framework incorporating three different types of metal-organic cages and two distinct types of one-dimensional channels. With a moderate BET surface area of 1655 m(2) g(-1), optimized pore structure, and functional sites (open copper sites and Lewis basic amine groups) on the cage surface, ZJNU-56 after desolvation exhibits highly selectively adsorptive separation of C2H2 and CO2 over CH4 under ambient conditions...

Gibbs free energies of adsorption on individual sites and the lateral (adsorbate-adsorbate) interaction energies are obtained from quantum chemical ab initio methods and molecular statistics. They define a Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) Hamiltonian for simulations of gas mixtures on a lattice of adsorption sites. Coadsorption of CO2 and CH4 at Mg(2+) sites in the pores of the metal-organic framework CPO-27-Mg (Mg-MOF-74) is studied as an example. Simulations with different approximations as made in widely used coadsorption models such as the ideal adsorbed solution theory (IAST) show their limitations in describing adsorption selectivities for binary mixtures...
