Parameterizing and grading hydrolytic stability in metal–organic frameworks

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of porous solid, which have a variety of potential applications. Unfortunately, MOFs often lack hydrolytic stability, which hinders their use as viable materials for large scale applications. Though there have been an increasing number of reports proving water stability, this aspect is often ignored and negative results often remain unpublished. As a result, this report has been produced to offer common benchmarks for stability of MOFs to moisture. This will be done by discussing what water stability means – both with regards to the exposure methods and the means of assessing the MOF after exposure. Based on these two criteria, definitions are proposed in order to allow MOFs to be discussed more consistently. The purpose of this report is not to rank existing MOFs based on water stability or for potential application but to promote and facilitate discussion about hydrolytic stability of MOFs.
