Shape-selected colloidal MOF crystals for aqueous use

Melinda Sindoro, Ah Young Jee, Steve Granick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
