New synthesis pathway and stability study of Sr-BDC metal–organic framework in different systems
Sr-BDC metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), composed of strontium ions and terephthalic acid residues, were synthesized using a simple solvothermal process without elevated pressure. This method is easily scalable and does not require special equipment. In the course of this work, the optimal synthesis temperature for this process was studied. The structure of the MOFs was confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis. In addition, the resulting systems were analysed by scanning electron microscopy. The stability of the obtained MOFs to different solutions was also studied.
