An ultrastable zirconium-phosphonate framework as bifunctional catalyst for highly active CO2 chemical transformation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A zirconium-phosphonate network, as a bifunctional catalyst for carbon dioxide (CO2)/epoxide coupling reaction, exhibits very high activity that is superior to most documented metal–organic framework (MOF)-based catalysts. Furthermore, it possesses extraordinary tolerance to extremely harsh conditions, such as aqua regia. This paper describes the use of metal phosphonate as a new MOF applied to CO2 transformation.
