Abstract

The water-stable zirconium–tricarboxylate series of frameworks, [Zr6O4(OH)4(X)6(btc)2]·nH2O, where X = formate (F), acetate (A), or propionate (P), exhibit tunable porosity by virtue of systematic modulation of the chain length of the monocarboxylate ligand X. This modification not only impacts the pore size of the framework, but provides an important avenue for the construction of mixed-linker MOFs. © 2014, The Royal Society of Chemistry.
