Abstract

In this paper, we report on a high-throughput (gram quantities) solvothermal method for the synthesis of copper terephthalate metal-organic frameworks in dmf. While the structure of MOF-2 and some of the associated polymorphs are well known, we know of no equivalent structural studies for the isostructural copper terephthalate (Cu-tpa). The material we have made crystallizes in the C2/m space group. Cu-tpa also exhibits reversible solvent-exchange properties. These properties make this material useful for potential applications in gas storage and catalysis applications.
