Abstract: n MOF synthesis, a number of distinct frameworks can often be produced from the same mixture of reagents under the same conditions, suggesting that the energy landscape is relatively flat. Many of these phases might be considered metastable with regard to the most stable MOF formed in a reaction system. In exploratory MOF synthesis, the most common method is to combine the metal and ligand source in a solvothermal reactor and heat at 80−250 °C for 1−2 days, then isolate any crystalline products. Because of the relatively long reaction times and high temperatures, this method has been proven to be a convenient and effective method of furnishing the most thermodynamically stable MOF from a given mixture.
