Multiple functional groups in UiO-66 improve chemical warfare agent simulant degradation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A library of 26 mixed ligand UiO-66 analogs was synthesized, characterized, and screened for catalytic degradation of the chemical warfare agent (CWA) simulant dimethyl 4-nitrophenylphosphate (DMNP). The MOFs were screened and compared to physical mixtures of the same single component MOFs. Several of the MOFs display higher catalytic activity than the parent UiO-66 and other single ligand UiO-66 analogues.
