Characterizing Defects in a UiO-AZB Metal–Organic Framework

Characterizing Defects in a UiO-AZB Metal–Organic Framework
Amanda J. Morris, Charity C. Epley, Madeline D. Love
This report highlights a method to control the number of missing linkers in UiO-AZB by simply changing the modulator employed. When using acetic acid in the synthesis, a 30% defected structure resulted in the highest observed surface areas of the MOF. However, the percentage of defects increases to 33% using benzoic acid and 36% using formic acid, resulting in mesoporous MOF samples with reduced surface areas.
