The growing use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) has seriously affected human health and ecosystems, as a result, the World Health Organization (WHO) has regarded them as emerging contaminants. NSAID's polar nature and trace amount present in wastewater make their extraction and determination challenging in modern analytical science. Therefore, regarding the need, we herein report a rapid, sensitive and selective in-syringe solid-phase extraction (SPE) method coupled with ultrahigh performance liquid chromatography and UV detector for the determination of seven NSAIDs in environmental water samples...

A critical challenge in environmental remediation is the design of adsorbents with proper pore size for the removal of organic pollutants. Three covalent organic frameworks (COFs) with different pore sizes were successfully prepared by a room temperature solution-suspension method, and used to remove the typical aryl-organophosphorus flame retardant (triphenyl phosphate (TPhP)) from aqueous solution. The prepared COFs showed strong acid resistance and thermal stability. The 1,3,5-triformylphloroglucinol (TFP) reacted with benzidine (BD) (COF2) exhibited the highest sorption capacity for TPhP, followed by the reaction of TFP and 4,4''-Diamino-p-terphenyl (DT) (COF3), and the reaction of TFP and p-phenylenediamine (PDA) (COF1)...

To develop facile, rapid, low-energy and environmentally benign routes for the synthesis of covalent organic frameworks (COFs) is of great interest. Here we demonstrate for the first time the utilization of CO2-dissolved water as a solvent for the room-temperature synthesis of COF. The as-synthesized COF-LZU1 particles combine advantages of good crystallinity, nanoscale size and high surface area, which have shown to be promising support for heterogeneous catalysts. Moreover, the CO2-assisted method is versatile for the room-temperature synthesis of Cu-COF-LZU1...

A zirconium metallic organic framework UiO-66-NH2 has been synthesized and is further modified with imidazole-2-carboxaldehyde by a covalent post synthetic route which is based on a Schiff-base reaction. The as-prepared, functionalized MOF named UiO-66-NH2-IM is fully characterized. It retains its structural integrity during the PSM process and shows excellent luminescence and good fluorescence stability in water. It has also been further utilized as a sensitive fluorescent probe for sensing ions. The results show that UiO-66-NH2-IM can be developed into a highly selective and sensitive sensor for the detection of S2O82- (detection limit, 8...

We employ a two-step strategy for accessing crystalline porous covalent networks of highly conjugated π-electron systems. For this, we first assembled a crystalline metal-organic framework (MOF) precursor based on Zr(iv) ions and a linear dicarboxyl linker molecule featuring backfolded, highly unsaturated alkyne backbones; massive thermocyclization of the organic linkers was then triggered to install highly conjugated, fused-aromatic bridges throughout the MOF scaffold while preserving the crystalline order...

In 2013, quinoxyfen was included in the list of priority hazard pollutants of the European Water Framework Directive due to its toxicity to aquatic organisms. However, few analytical methods for the analysis of this fungicide have been reported and no rapid immunochemical methods have been published so far. In the present study, immunoreagents for quinoxyfen analysis were generated for the first time and an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed. Two carboxylated derivatives of quinoxyfen were designed on the basis of the minimum energy conformation of the target compound...

The growing interest in two-dimensional imine-based covalent organic frameworks (COFs) is inspired by their crystalline porous structures and the potential for extensive π-electron delocalization. The intrinsic reversibility and strong polarization of imine linkages, however, leads to insufficient chemical stability and optoelectronic properties. Developing COFs with improved robustness and π-delocalization is highly desirable but remains an unsettled challenge. Here we report a facile strategy that transforms imine-linked COFs into ultrastable porous aromatic frameworks by kinetically fixing the reversible imine linkage via an aza-Diels-Alder cycloaddition reaction...

Ordered nanoporosity in covalent organic framework (COF) offers excellent opportunity for property development. Loading nanoparticles (nPs) onto them is one approach to introducing tailor-made properties into a COF. Here, a COF-Co/Co(OH)2 composite containing about 16 wt% of <6 nm sized Co/Co(OH)2 nPs is prepared on a N-rich COF support that catalyzes the release of theoretical equivalence of H2 from readily available, safe, and cheap NaBH4 . Furthermore, the released H2 is utilized for the hydrogenation of nitrile and nitro compounds to amines under ambient conditions in a facile one-pot reaction...

Flexible supercapacitors in modern electronic equipment require light-weight electrodes, which have a high surface area, precisely integrated redox moieties, and mechanically strong flexible free-standing nature. However, the incorporation of the aforementioned properties into a single electrode remains a great task. Herein, we could overcome these challenges by a facile and scalable synthesis of the convergent covalent organic framework (COF) free-standing flexible thin sheets through solid-state molecular baking strategy...

Highly efficient electrocatalysts derived from metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) have been developed over the past decade owning to their tailorable pores structures and rich element selection. However, the subsequent pyrolysis is often needed for the materials due to their poor intrinsic electrical conductivity and this always leads to undesirable structure changes and even destroys the original fine structures. Here, we developed a novel facial approach to synthesize the hybrid electrocatalysts by self-assembling pristine covalent organic polymer (COP) with reduced graphene oxide (rGO)...

A sensitive and selective TAPB-DMTP-COF (TAPB, 1,3,5-tris(4-aminophenyl)benzene; DMTP, 2,5-dimethoxyterephaldehyde; COF, covalent organic framework) modified carbon paste electrode was evaluated as a novel electrochemical sensor for the determination of lead in an aqueous medium. Lead was accumulated on the TAPB-DMTP-COF surface by the complexation with the amine groups, and detected by differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry. Due to the distinct structure features of COF, the resulting sensor revealed a fast electron transfer rate and outstanding adsorption capacity for lead...

Crystalline and porous covalent organic frameworks (COFs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) materials have attracted enormous attention in the field of photocatalytic H2 evolution due to their long-range order structures, large surface areas, outstanding visible light absorbance, and tunable band gaps. In this work, we successfully integrated two-dimensional (2D) COF with stable MOF. By covalently anchoring NH2 -UiO-66 onto the surface of TpPa-1-COF, a new type of MOF/COF hybrid materials with high surface area, porous framework, and high crystallinity was synthesized...

Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) have been proposed as alternative candidates for molecular sieving membranes due to their chemical stability. However, developing COF membranes with narrowed apertures close to the size of common gas molecules is a crucial task for selective gas separation. Herein, we demonstrate a new type of a two-dimensional layered-stacking COF-COF composite membrane in bilayer geometry synthesized on a porous support by successively regulating the growth of imine-based COF-LZU1 and azine-based ACOF-1 layers via a temperature-swing solvothermal approach...

In this paper, a series of bisbenzimidazole-functionalized highly porous covalent triazine frameworks (CTF-BIBs) has been constructed from a new organic building block, 1,4-bis(5-cyano-1 H-benzimidazole-2-yl)benzene, via ionothermal polymerization. The physical porosity and gas adsorption properties of these CTF-BIBs were characterized, and the resulting CTF-BIBs exhibit significantly high Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface areas (1636-2088 m2 g-1 ) and notable CO2 uptakes (86.4-97.6 cm3 g-1 at 273 K and 1 bar; 48...

Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) as drug-delivery carriers have been mostly evaluated in vitro due to the lack of COFs nanocarriers that are suitable for in vivo studies. Here we develop a series of water-dispersible polymer-COF nanocomposites through the assembly of polyethylene-glycol-modified monofunctional curcumin derivatives (PEG-CCM) and amine-functionalized COFs (APTES-COF-1) for in vitro and in vivo drug delivery. The real-time fluorescence response shows efficient tracking of the COF-based materials upon cellular uptake and anticancer drug (doxorubicin (DOX)) release...
