Abstract

A new white light MOF was constructed from low-cost 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate and nontoxic Zinc(II) ions. The compound possessed the most sophisticated crystallographic asymmetric unit containing sixteen metal ions and twelve ligands. Near sunlight and human eye friendly white-light emission under a wide ultraviolet radiation range of 300 to 390 nm was observed for this photoemitter, without the use of expensive rare earth and complicated organic ligands.
