Tuning the properties of the UiO-66 metal organic framework by Ce substitution

Author affiliations

Abstract

Crystallisation of a mixed-metal form of the porous framework UiO-66 in which Zr is partially replaced by Ce produces a ligand-defective material, that contains some Ce(III) as well as a majority of Ce(IV). Infrared spectroscopy shows enhanced binding of methanol in the substituted material that leads to catalytic decomposition of the alcohol, which may be due to a combination of defects and redox activity.
