Abstract

The well-known MOF (metal-organic framework) linker tetrakis(p-benzoate)pyrene (TBAPy4−) lacks steric hindrance between its benzoates. Changing the 1,3,6,8-siting of benzoates in TBAPy4−to 4,5,9,10-siting introduces substantial steric hindrance and, in turn, enables the synthesis of a new hierarchically porous,she-type MOF Zr63-O)43-OH)4(C6H5COO)3(COO)3(TBAPy-2)3/2(NU-601), where TBAPy-24−is the 4,5,9,10 isomer of TBAPy4−.NU-601shows high catalytic activity for degradative hydrolysis of a simulant for G-type fluoro-phosphorus nerve agents.
