Abstract:
Gram-scale synthesis of a silver-triazolato framework − {[Ag8(tz)6](NO3)2·6H2O}n (1-NO3; tz⁻=3,5-diphenyl-1,2,4-triazolate) − has been achieved, enabling the systematic investigation of its anion-exchange properties. Our experimental results show that the anion-exchange pattern of 1-NO3 conforms to the so-called Hofmeister bias, which has been correlated to the hydrophobic nature of the MOF pores, and can be understood by considering the difference between the hydration energies of the exchanging anions. Furthermore, 1-NO3 displays a fast, efficient, and reversible adsorption of HCrO4⁻ (via anion-exchange) from Cr(VI)-containing aqueous solution (Qmax=37.0 Cr mg/g, 303K), rendering it a promising prototype of a recyclable MOF for Cr(VI) removal.
