Title: Reticular chemistry in the rational synthesis of functional zirconium cluster-based MOFs

Abstract

In the past two decades, reticular chemistry has developed into a powerful tool for the design and synthesis of porous, crystalline framework materials. The discovery of the first hexanuclear, zirconium cluster-based MOF (i.e. UiO-66; fcu net) led to a vast library of functional Zr-MOFs with various properties. The versatile connectivity of zirconium hexanuclear clusters and the adaptable tunability of organic ligands have resulted in the rational synthesis of a large set of Zr-MOFs based on edge-transitive nets; these nets commonly exists in crystalline network structures as suggested by reticular chemistry. In this review, we summarize recent advances in the synthesis of zirconium cluster-based MOFs in the light of reticular chemistry design principles. Isoreticular tuning of MOF parent structures and post-synthetic modification of Zr-MOFs for targeted applications are also deliberated.
