Abstract

For the first time, we have developed an aqueous ambient-temperature synthesis of the zirconium-based metal–organic framework NH2-UiO-66. The optimised synthetic route offers greatly reduced energy input compared with the conventional solvothermal synthetic method and it does not require any organic solvents or vapours. This facile process is easily up-scalable and it yields highly porous nanoparticles. Samples that underwent the reaction in a shorter amount of time displayed point defects of the dangling linker type.
