Summary:
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), are a unique class of materials in which metal clusters are linked together by organic moieties forming porous 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D structures. MOFs have many applications resulting from not only the overall structure, but also the metal center, organic “linker”, or a combination thereof. The high surface areas and porosity of these materials have found use in heterogeneous catalysis, display technologies, semiconducting materials, and biomedicine. These materials are also currently being developed as a new sensor technology for detection of potentially harmful chemicals. Nitroaromatics are key components in the fabrication of explosives, however, current detection methods are time consuming and expensive. Considering this, our interest lies in synthesizing MOFs that can be used as a sensor for nitroaromatic compounds. To this end, our lab has developed a new Er(III) MOF based on the linker 2-2’-bithiophene-5,5’-dicarboxylic acid (DTDC). Herein, synthesis and nitroaromatic sensing studies will be discussed.
