Abstract

A self-assembled functionalized metal–organic nanotube, compound 1, has been hydrothermally synthesized using 5-(3-methyl-5-phenyl-4H-1, 2, 4-triazol-4-yl)isophthalic acid (H2L) with Zn(II) ions. Compound 1 possesses a one-dimensional (1D) nanotubular architecture. Luminescence studies show that compound 1 displays strong blue emission at room temperature. Benzene adsorption results show that the latter adsorbed benzene only on the outer walls, while the former adsorbed benzene also on the inner walls since the holes through the walls enabled benzene to reach the inner tubules.
