Title: Synthesis, characterization, and luminescent properties of two new Zr(IV) metal–organic frameworks based on anthracene derivatives

Abstract

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline materials constructed from metal ions or clusters, connected by multidentate organic ligands. Herein, we describe the synthesis and photophysical properties of two Zr-based, anthracene-containing MOFs, assembled from 2,6-anthracenedicarboxylic acid (2,6-ADCA and 2,6-MOF) and 1,4-anthracenedicarboxylic acid (1,4-ADCA and 1,4-MOF). The 2,6-ADCA analogue formed a highly crystalline octahedral structure that is isostructural with the well-known UiO-67 frameworks. Incorporation of the 1,4-ADCA ligand, on the other hand, resulted in large rod-shaped crystals. Both MOFs exhibit linker-based luminescence. The excited-state properties of the 2,6-MOF and 1,4-MOF were examined using stead-state diffuse reflectance and emission spectroscopies and time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) spectroscopy. The photophysical properties of the MOFs are compared with those of the corresponding ligand in solution.
