Template induced structural isomerism and enhancement of porosity in manganese(II) based metal–organic frameworks (Mn-MOFs)

Abstract

Three new metal–organic framework isomers have been synthesized by using the organic linker 5-triazole isophthalic acid and Mn(NO3)2·xH2O. Structural conversions from non-porous to porous MOFs due to the template effect have been observed. The cross-sectional pore apertures of the resulting Mn-MOFs are comparable to the molecular dimensions of the template (pyrazine and 4,4′-bipyridine). The periodic increased porosity in Mn-MOFs depending on the size of the template used has been further confirmed by the CO2 adsorption isotherms.
