Synthetic control of framework zinc purinate crystallisation and properties of a large pore, decorated, mixed-linker RHO-type ZIF

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel form of mixed-linker ZIF with the RHO topology is one of four zinc-imidazolate frameworks prepared with purine and 2-nitroimidazole. In this structure the linkers order to give a large pore solid with a high pore volume and an unusual symmetry and linker orientation. It possesses extra-framework zinc imidazolate units decorating the internal surface which can be removed to give high porosity.
