Linker functionalisation triggers an alternative 3D-topology for Zn-isophthalate-4,4′-bipyridine frameworks

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of four Zn2+ metal–organic frameworks containing functionalised isophthalate linkers and 4,4′-bipyridine pillars have been prepared and characterised. Isophthalates which contain –OC3H2n+1 alkoxy side chains (with n = 1, 2 or 3) form frameworks with a 3D pillared-layer topology instead of the typical 2D layer topology of the renowned coordination polymers with an interdigitated structure (CIDs), which is found for shorter –OC2H5 side chains. The gas adsorption properties of the materials were analysed using N2, CO2 and O2 adsorption measurements at low temperatures.
