Using water adsorption measurements to access the chemistry of defects in the metal–organic framework UiO-66

Author affiliations

Abstract

Tailoring defects in metal–organic frameworks is important for enhancing sorption and reaction properties. Defects in UiO-66 have been characterized for the first time by using water adsorption measurements. We found that the defect-induced hydrophilicity, quantitatively expressed by the Henry constant and the saturation water uptake, correlates well with the catalytic performance in the cyanosilylation of benzaldehyde.
