Whilst many metal-organic frameworks possess the chemical stability needed to be used as functional materials, they often lack the physical strength required for industrial applications. Herein, we have investigated the mechanical properties of two UiO-topology Zr-MOFs, the planar UiO-67 ([Zr6O4(OH)4 (bpdc)6], bpdc: 4,4'-biphenyl dicarboxylate) and UiO-abdc(More)
The first high-pressure neutron diffraction study in a miniature diamond-anvil cell of a single crystal of size typical for X-ray diffraction is reported. This is made possible by modern Laue diffraction using a large solid-angle image-plate detector. An unexpected finding is that even reflections whose diffracted beams pass through the cell body are(More)
A new member of the UiO-66 series of zirconium metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is reported, and the postsynthetic bromination of its integral alkene moeities in a single-crystal to single-crystal manner is fully characterised. Nanoindentation is used to probe the bromination of unsaturated carbon-carbon bonds, in it and an analogous Zr MOF, which leads to(More)
Materials that demonstrate long-range magnetic order are synonymous with information storage and the electronics industry, with the phenomenon commonly associated with metals, metal alloys or metal oxides and sulfides. A lesser known family of magnetically ordered complexes are the monometallic compounds of highly anisotropic d-block transition metals; the(More)
Synchrotron radiation (SR) IR microspectroscopy has enabled determination of the thermodynamics, kinetics, and molecular orientation of CO2 adsorbed in single microcrystals of a functionalized metal-organic framework (MOF) under conditions relevant to carbon capture from flue gases. Single crystals of the small-pore MOF, Sc2 (BDC-NH2 )3 , (BDC-NH2(More)
