Abstract

A metal–organic framework (MOF) compound, comprised of Sr2+ and thiophene-2,5-dicarboxylic acid (H2TDA) with a formula of Sr(TDA)(DMF), was prepared via the solvothermal method, this MOF compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with unit cell parameters a = 6.0078(4) Å, b = 16.9401(12) Å, c = 13.0061(8) Å, β = 116.158(3)° and V = 1188.10(14) Å3. The spaces of rhombus channels in the MOF crystal are occupied by the disordered DMF molecules. The striking structural feature is that the connectivity between inorganic hendecahedron units of SrO7 and TDA2− ligands gives rise to the uncommon I1O2 type 3-D framework of 1. The dielectric relaxation and novel dielectric bistability behaviors were observed for this MOF compound in the lower frequency regime (f < 103 Hz) and the higher temperature (T > 160 °C), which originated from the orientation motion of the disordered polar DMF molecules under an ac electric field. This study suggested the possibility of dielectric bistability in the designed MOFs with pores or channels.
