Porous inorganic solids can be synthesized in complex forms, and here we describe a simple method to create an ultralight, macroporous, crystalline vanadium oxide foam by bubbling oxygen gas produced in situ through a viscous vanadium oxide gel. This foaming process could be extended to other metal oxides.
A 1D-microporous 3D calcium tetracarboxylate MOF has been solvothermally prepared and its structure solved from single crystal data. It exhibits coordinatively unsaturated Ca(2+) Lewis acid sites able to trap and deliver nitric oxide at a biological level.
A study integrating advanced experimental and modeling tools was undertaken to characterize the microstructural and interfacial properties of mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) composed of the zeolitic imidazolate framework ZIF-8 nanoparticles (NPs) and two polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIM-1 and PIM-EA-TB). Analysis probed both the initial ZIF-8/PIM-1… (More)
The energy-storage capacities of a series of water-stable porous metal-organic frameworks, based on high-valence metal cations (Al3+ , Fe3+ , Cr3+ , Ti4+ , Zr4+ ) and polycarboxylate linkers, were evaluated under the typical conditions of seasonal energy-storage devices. The results showed that the microporous hydrophilic Al-dicarboxylate MIL-160(Al)… (More)
This work shows that the combination of first-principles calculations and (51)V NMR experiments is a powerful tool to elucidate the location of surface hydroxyl groups and to precisely describe the hydrogen bond network in the complex decavanadate cluster Cs(4)[H(2)V(10)O(28)].4H(2)O, enhancing the strength of NMR crystallography. The detailed… (More)
Owing to their promise in photocatalysis and optoelectronics, titanium based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are one of the most appealing classes of MOFs reported to date. Nevertheless, Ti-MOFs are still very scarce because of their challenging synthesis associated with a poor degree of control of their chemistry and crystallization. This review aims at… (More)
The influence of polyoxovanadate clusters ([H(2)V(10)O(28)](4-)) on the thermo-reversible gelation of porcine skin gelatin solution (type A, M w approximately 40 000 g.mol (-1), pH = 3.4 << isoelectric point (IEP) approximately 8) has been investigated as a function of temperature and vanadate concentration by combining rheology and microcalorimetry. This… (More)
The reaction of vanadate(V) with a series of dipeptides (Val-Gln, Ala-Gln, Gly-Gln, Gly-Glu, and Ala-Gly) was investigated by UV-visible spectroscopy and multinuclear ((51)V, (14)N, (13)C) NMR spectroscopy in solution. It was possible to evaluate the formation constants of the corresponding complexes for which a molecular structure was proposed. Complex… (More)
Laccase in combination with 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) as a mediator is a well-known bioelectrocatalyst for the 4-electron oxygen reduction reactions (ORR). The present work deals with the first exploitation of mesoporous iron(III) trimesate-based metal organic frameworks (MOF) MIL-100(Fe) (MIL stands for materials from… (More)
The chemically and structurally highly stable polyoxometalate (POM) single-molecule magnet (SMM) [(FeW9 O34 )2 Fe4 (H2 O)2 ](10-) (Fe6 W18 ) has been incorporated by direct or post-synthetic approaches into a biopolymer gelatin (Gel) matrix and two crystalline metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), including one diamagnetic (UiO-67) and one magnetic… (More)
