Summary of "A Thorium Metal-Organic Framework with Outstanding Thermal and Chemical Stability."

A new thorium metal-organic framework (MOF), Th(OBA)2, where OBA is 4,4'-oxybis(benzoic) acid, has been synthesized hydrothermally in the presence of a range of nitrogen-donor coordination modulators. This Th-MOF, described herein as GWMOF-13, has been characterized via single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction as well as via a range of techniques including gas sorption, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and solid-state UV-Vis and luminescence spectroscopy. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of GWMOF-13 reveals an interesting, high symmetry (cubic Ia-3d) structure, which yields a novel srs-a topology. Most notably, TGA analysis of GWMOF-13 reveals framework stability to 525 ºC, matching the thermal stability benchmarks of the UiO-66 series MOFs and ZIFs, and setting a new standard for thermal stability in f-block based MOFs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Thorium. A radioactive element of the actinide series of metals. It has an atomic symbol Th, atomic number 90, and atomic weight 232.04. It is used as fuel in nuclear reactors to produce fissionable uranium isotopes. Because of its radioopacity, various thorium compounds are used to facilitate visualization in roentgenography.

Inorganic compounds that contain thorium as an integral part of the molecule.

Thorium oxide (ThO2). A radiographic contrast agent that was used in the early 1930s through about 1954. High rates of mortality have been linked to its use and it has been shown to cause liver cancer.

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.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
