Regulating the Topologies of Zirconium–Organic Frameworks for a Crystal Sponge Applicable to Inorganic Matter Academic Article uri icon


  • Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been explored as crystal sponges (CSs) to organic substrates, but attention had rarely been paid to inorganic substrates. Herein, hierarchical zirconium-based MOFs exhibiting different topological structures had been fabricated by modulating the functional groups of the V-shaped linkers, including a new 4-fold-interpenetrating one, which displays a great performance as a CS applicable to inorganic matter (I2 and ReO4-) even in the extreme conditions.
