The aqueous synthesis of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) at room temperature offers many advantages, such as a reduction in the generation of toxic byproducts and operation costs, as well as increased safety in the material’s production. Functional group-bearing MOFs have received growing attention as they often have enhanced adsorption properties when compared to non-functionalized analogues. In this work, we describe the aqueous solution-based synthesis of a robust zirconium MOF, UiO-66-NO2, at room temperature, which resulted in MOF crystals with comparable porosity to those obtained by solvothermal synthesis. Reversible water and ethanol vapor isotherms support the potential of UiO-66-NO2 as a solid adsorbent in adsorption-based cooling applications or water-harvesting systems. View this paper.
