Template synthesis and photochromism of a layered zinc diphosphonate

Author affiliations

Abstract

A zinc diphosphonate with protonated 2,4,6-tri(4-pyridyl)-1,3,5-triazine (H3TPT) as the template was hydrothermally prepared. The host layered framework was composed of 1-hydroxyethylidenediphosphonate and zinc ions. The guest H3TPT locates between the adjacent layers, acting as the charge balancer and template. The title compound features rapid photochromism upon irradiation with sunlight or UV light at ambient temperature.
