Hybrid vanadates constructed from extended metal–organic arrays: crystal architectures and properties
The hybrid vanadates exhibit structural archetypes between the hybrid zeotypes, in which the inorganic framework is surrounding an organic cation acting as a template, and metal–organic frameworks whose crystal structures are constructed from metal nodes or clusters linked by organic bridges. Here we present the summary of the studies carried out on hybrid vanadates constructed from extended metal–organic arrays. The crystal structures are systematically described and classified according to the dimensionality of the inorganic and metal–organic frameworks. Finally, the magnetic, thermal and catalytic properties of different structural archetypes are discussed.
