Abstract:
Recently, polymer–metal–organic frameworks (polyMOFs) were reported as a new class of hybrid porous materials that combine advantages of both organic polymers and crystalline MOFs. Herein, we report a bridging coligand strategy to prepare new types of polyMOFs, demonstrating that polyMOFs are compatible with additional MOF architectures besides that of the earlier reported IRMOF-1 type polyMOF. Gas sorption studies revealed that these polyMOF materials exhibited relatively high CO₂ sorption but very low N₂ sorption, making them promising materials for CO₂/N₂ separations. Moreover, these polyMOFs demonstrated exceptional water stability attributed to the hydrophobicity of polymer ligands as well as the cross-linking of the polymer chains within the MOF.
