Summary of "Impressive Proton Conductivities of Two Highly Stable Metal-Organic Frameworks Constructed by Substituted Imidazoledicarboxylates."

There is great interest in the promising applications of proton-conductive metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in the field of electrochemistry. Thus, seeking more types of MOFs with high proton conductivity is of great importance. Herein, we designed and prepared two substituted imidazoledicarboxylate-based MOFs, {[Cd( p-TIPhHIDC)]·HO} [1; p-TIPhHIDC = 2- p-(1 H-1,2,4-triazolyl)phenyl-1 H-4,5-imidazoledicarboxylic acid] and [Sr(DMPhHIDC)] [2; DMPhHIDC = 2-(3,4-dimethylphenyl)-1 H-imidazole-4,5-dicarboxylic acid], and fully explored their water-assisted proton conduction. The best conductivity for 1 of 1.24 × 10 S·cm is higher than that of most previous conductive Cd-MOFs under similar conditions. 2 has the highest conductivity (0.92 × 10 S·cm) among the reported conductive Sr-MOFs. Via structural analysis, E values, water vapor adsorptions, and powder X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy tests, reasonable proton pathways and conduction mechanisms were highlighted. It should be emphasized that the N-heterocyclic units (imidazole and triazole) and carboxyl and hydrogen-bonding networks in the frameworks all play crucial roles in the transmission of proton conductivity. Our research offers more choice for the preparation of desired proton-conductive materials.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Supramolecular networks that consist of ordered arrangements of organic electron donor linkers (usually ditopic or polytopic organic carboxylates) and metal cations. They can have an extremely high surface area and adjustable pore size that allows for the insertion of other molecules capable of various functions such as catalysis, capture of carbon dioxide, and drug delivery.

Stable elementary particles having the smallest known positive charge, found in the nuclei of all elements. The proton mass is less than that of a neutron. A proton is the nucleus of the light hydrogen atom, i.e., the hydrogen ion.

Deuterium. The stable isotope of hydrogen. It has one neutron and one proton in the nucleus.

A complex of enzymes and PROTON PUMPS located on the inner membrane of the MITOCHONDRIA and in bacterial membranes. The protein complex provides energy in the form of an electrochemical gradient, which may be used by either MITOCHONDRIAL PROTON-TRANSLOCATING ATPASES or BACTERIAL PROTON-TRANSLOCATING ATPASES.

Energy that is generated by the transfer of protons or electrons across an energy-transducing membrane and that can be used for chemical, osmotic, or mechanical work. Proton-motive force can be generated by a variety of phenomena including the operation of an electron transport chain, illumination of a PURPLE MEMBRANE, and the hydrolysis of ATP by a proton ATPase.
