Title: Scalable synthesis and post-modification of a mesoporous metal-organic framework called NU-1000

Abstract

The synthesis of NU-1000, a mesoporous metal-organic framework (MOF), can be conducted efficiently on a multigram scale from inexpensive starting materials. NU-1000 has been reported as an excellent candidate for gas separation and catalysis. In particular, it is ideal for the catalytic deactivation of nerve agents and shows great promise as a new generic platform for a wide range of applications. Multiple post-synthetic modification protocols have been developed using NU-1000 as the parent material, making it a potentially useful scaffold for several catalytic applications. The procedure for the preparation of NU-1000 can be scaled up reliably, and it is suitable for the production of 50 g of the tetracarboxylic acid containing organic linker and 200 mg–2.5 g of NU-1000. Lastly, the entire synthesis is performed without purification by column chromatography and can be completed within 10 d.
