Abstract: The first anion-exchangeable framework hydroxide, Yb3O(OH)(6)Cl center dot 2H(2)O, has been synthesized hydrothermally. This material has a three-dimensional cationic ytterbium oxyhydroxide framework with one-dimensional channels running through the structure in which the chloride anions and water molecules are located. The framework is thermally stable below 200 degrees C and can be reversibly dehydrated and rehydrated with no loss of crystallinity. Additionally, it is able to undergo anion-exchange reactions with small ions such as carbonate, oxalate, and succinate with retention of the framework structure.
