Description

Application

1,3,5-Tris(4-carboxyphenyl)benzene (BTB) is a building block for Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are 3D-microporous materials with potential applications in gas adsorption and separation technologies. BTB has been recently used as a linker to make MOFs with extremely high surface area such as MOF-177 (~ 5000 m2/g), a hydrogen absorbing material with an extremely high hydrogen storage capacity of 7.5% at 77K.

Linkage

Sigma-Aldrich offers a variety of molecules that can serve as linkers for Metal Organic Frame Works. To see our current offerings in the area of Materials for Hydrogen Storage Applications, visit www.sigma-aldrich.com/hydrogen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?
If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.
How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?
The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.
How do I find price and availability?
There are several ways to find pricing and availability for our products.Once you log onto our website, you will find the price and availability displayed on the product detail page.You can contact any of our Customer Sales and Service offices to receive a quote. USA customers: 1-800-325-3010 orview local office numbers.
What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?
Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product.
What residual solvents are present in Product 686859, Benzoic acid?
Possible residual solvents present in this material are dimethyl sulfoxide and acetic acid. Both impurities are quantified on a batch-to-batch basis and the levels reported on the certificate of analysis.
Is a protocol available for using Product 686859, Benzoic acid, to produce Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) with high surface area?
Unfortunately, Sigma-Aldrich does not manufacture MOFs and do not have a protocol for using this material for a similar application. However, a synthesis method for preparing MOF-177 (a MOF with high surface area) can be obtained from the following reference: Chae, H. K.; Siberio-Perez, D. Y.; Kim, J.; Go, Y.-B.; Eddaoudi, M.; Matzger, A. J.; OKeeffe, M.; Yaghi, O. M. Nature 2004, 427, 523-527. In addition to product #686859, Zinc (II) nitrate hexahydrate (e.g. product #96482) and N,N-Diethylformamide (e.g. product #186317) would be required to prepare the MOF in this reference.
