AbstractThe potential applications of Metal-Organic Framework materials (MOFs) cover a large number of fields, including heterogeneous catalysis. In spite of thousands of MOFs are fully characterized, paradoxically one of the most frequently and successfully tested MOFbased catalysts, the so-called Basolite F300, is of unknown structure and its preparation has not been reported. Its commerciality (by BASF and Sigma-Aldrich) and its poor crystallinity leads to the lack of investigation on the improvement and knowledge of this material. The consequent difficulty for establishing a structure-activity correlation limits the advance of MOFs as heterogeneous catalysts. The only certainness is the nature of the metal, Fe, and the organic linker, benzene-tricarboxylate (BTC). In this study, we describe a preparation method of a Fe-BTC material basically equal to Basolite F300 (Figure 1). This method is based on a patented general synthesis procedure of MOFs. There are several advantages of preparing our own catalysts with respect to the available commercially one: i) our method is cheap, facile, fast, reproducible, of high yield, without any energetic cost (it is made at room temperature), and environmentally friendly (water as unique solvent, neutral pHs, etc.); ii) under systematic studies, some key catalysts properties such as porosity or active centers nature are susceptible to be adapted to the requirements of the catalyst.
