A highly porous isoreticular metal–organic framework (IRMOF-3) was synthesized and employed as a novel efficient heterogeneous catalyst for the synthesis of chalcone via Claisen–Schmidt condensation. The effects of temperature, catalyst amount and solvent on the yield of chalcone were investigated. The results showed that IRMOF-3 not only showed high catalytic activities for the Claisen–Schmidt condensation reaction under environmentally friendly conditions, but remarkably, it could also be… Expand
