- Effective and selective removal of Pb(II) from aqueous solution is highly desirable, but it is still a great challenge. We report here a water stable metal-organic frameworks (CAU-7-TATB), and the ligands contain N, which provides binding sites for metal ions. CAU-7-TATB exhibits fast adsorption kinetics, high adsorption capacity towards Pb(II). More importantly, CAU-7-TATB remains high prior adsorption towards Pb(II) in the presence of interfering ions like Cr(III), Co(II), Ni(II), Mn(II), Zn(II), Mg(II) and Ca(II), which is potentially applicable in removing Pb(II) from industrial water.
