Abstract

In the past decades, many methods have been developed for synthesizing MOFs, including solvothermal synthesis, mechanical synthesis, electrochemical synthesis, and microwave synthesis. Based on the existing research, a method is proposed for synthesizing Co-MOF by rapidly rotating hydrothermal crystallization, which largely shortens the crystallization time of Co-MOF. When the rotation speed was 150 rpm, only 2 h of crystallization time was needed to synthesize Co-MOF-150-2 with high crystallinity and stability. The optimal Co-MOF-150-2 manifested remarkable activity and selectivity for the epoxidation of α-pinene under mild conditions. The catalytic conversion of α-pinene reached the highest over the Co-MOF-150-2 catalyst, in which the conversion of α-pinene was 99.5% and the yield of 2,3-epoxypinane was 95.7%. The Co-MOF materials synthesized by the rotary method also had excellent stability and highly catalytic activity in recycling experiments.
