Summary of "Ligand Exchange in the Synthesis of Metal-Organic Frameworks Occurs Through Acid-Catalyzed Associative Substitution."

The syntheses of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) can be improved through modulated synthesis, synthesis employing precursors, and postsynthetic exchange (PSE) modifications, all of which share ligand exchange as a common and crucial reaction. To date, however, the mechanism of ligand exchange and the underlying principles governing it have remained elusive. Herein, we report energy landscapes for the ligand exchange processes of 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid and 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid with ZrO(OH)(OMc) (OMc = methacrylate), as calculated using density functional theory (DFT). The rate-limiting step of ligand exchange follows an associative-substitution mechanism catalyzed by protons, consistent with previous kinetic data. Our calculations suggest that the acid catalysis is dependent on the relative basicities of the incoming and outgoing ligands coordinated in the complex, allowing molecular-level rationalization of many seminal MOF syntheses that had previously been interpreted macroscopically. Our results provide new insights for MOF synthesis and new clues for the rational de novo synthesis of MOFs.

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.

Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.

The exchange of OXYGEN and CARBON DIOXIDE between alveolar air and pulmonary capillary blood that occurs across the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER.

High molecular weight, insoluble polymers which contain functional groups that are capable of undergoing exchange reactions (ION EXCHANGE) with either cations or anions.

A polyspecific transporter for organic cations found primarily in the kidney. It mediates the coupled exchange of alpha-ketoglutarate with organic ions such as P-AMINOHIPPURIC ACID.
