Dalton Trans. 2016 Dec 14. [Epub ahead of print]Ultra large pore isostructural metal organic frameworks (MOFs) which exhibit both photoluminescence and scintillation properties, were synthesized from trans-4,4'-stilbenedicarboxylic acid (H2L) and trivalent lanthanide (Ln) metal salts under solvothermal conditions (Ln = Er3+ (1) and Tm3+ (2)). This new class of mesoporous materials is a non-interpenetrating network that features ultra-large diamond shaped pores of dimensions with approximate cross-sectional dimensions of 28 Å × 12 Å.
