TOF-2: a large 1D channel thorium organic framework.
- A new neutral 1D channel thorium organic framework material (TOF-2) has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. TOF-2 exhibits a hexagonal channel structure consisting of eight-coordinate ThO6F2 polyhedra and 1,3,5-benzentricarboxylate ligands. The channels run along the c-axis and are approximately 13 A in diameter. The single-crystal X-ray structure suggests that the amount of void space is 41%. The structure is stable to ca. 400 degrees C. Gas adsorption measurements show deferential gas uptake behavior.
