Abstract

A magnetic metal organic framework {[Cu(but-1,4-dc)0.5(N3)(H2O)]·H2O}n (MFUM-1(Cu)) (but-1,4-dc = butane-1,4-dicarboxylate) was synthesized and characterized structurally and magnetically. In MFUM-1(Cu), each CuII ion has a distorted octahedral geometry with an obvious Jahn–Teller distortion, where the coordination environment is composed of mixed EO-azido/aliphatic based carboxylate/H2O threefold bridges. These bridges extend the structure of MFUM-1(Cu) in two dimensions by covalent connectivity and form square-shaped channels. Also, a study was done to determine the effectiveness of sonochemical synthesis for the preparation of nano-sheets of MFUM-1(Cu) and subsequently the influence of particle size on physical properties such as magnetic behavior and thermal stability. The particles were characterized by elemental analyses, infrared spectroscopy (IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) analyses. The effects of parameters such as concentration, solvent, and reaction time on the size distribution, morphology, and yield of product were carefully studied. The magnetic properties of MFUM-1(Cu) and corresponding nano-structure were examined which indicated metamagnetism with strong intrachain ferromagnetic coupling versus the weak interchain antiferromagnetic coupling. Finally, the application of MFUM-1(Cu) in the separation of carbon dioxide from nitrogen and also from methane was theoretically investigated. High calculated selectivity of CO2 over N2 and CH4 reveals the potential application of MFUM-1(Cu) in practical systems of gas separation.
