Abstract

Methods are described to synthesize shape-selectable, monodisperse, aqueous-stable metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) by the reaction of aluminium nitrate with benzene tricarboxylic acid in various aqueous solvent mixtures and acetic acid as the capping ligand. Environmental stability was confirmed by thermal analysis and immersion in aqueous acidic media.
