Abstract

The template effect of chiral organic molecules to aluminophosphate open frameworks was investigated by the syntheses of two layered structures, [R-C8H12N]8[H2O]2·[Al8P12O48H4] and [S-C8H12N]8[H2O]2·[Al8P12O48H4] (denoted as AlPO-CJ72-R and -S), with a mirror symmetric feature. The two structures are obtained separately, which is the first instance in inorganic open-framework materials to our knowledge, by α-methylbenzylamine with homochirality. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that the structure of either AlPO-CJ72-R or AlPO-CJ72-S crystallizes in the chiral triclinic space group P1, and the existence of AAAA-stacked Al2P3O123− layers made up of alternating AlO4 and PO3([double bond, length as m-dash]O) or PO2([double bond, length as m-dash]O)(OH) tetrahedra to form a 4 × 6 network. Their structures show self-assembled chiral H-bond chains, the chiralities of which are transferred to adjacent helical T–O (T = Al and P) chains. The frameworks are mirror symmetric to each other. The performance of AlPO-CJ72 regarding proton conductivity was tested. It shows an excellent result up to 3.01 × 10−3 S cm−1 (363 K, 98% RH), which might be attributed to the H-bond chains in the structure.
