An amino-modified Zr-terephthalate metal–organic framework as an acid–base catalyst for cross-aldol condensation

Author affiliations

Abstract

After controlled pretreatment, some Zr-terephthalate metal–organic frameworks are highly selective catalysts for the cross-aldol condensation between benzaldehyde and heptanal. The proximity of Lewis acid and base sites in the amino-functionalized UiO-66(NH2) material further raises the reaction yields.
