A novel thorium (IV) MOF, Th(2,6-naphtalenedicarboxylate)2, has been synthesized via solvothermal reaction of thorium nitrate and 2,6-naphtalendicarboxilyc acid. This compound shows a new structural arrangement with an interesting to-pology and an excellent thermal resistance, as the framework is stable in air up to 450 °C. Most notably this MOF, combin-ing the radioactivity of its metal center and the scintillation property of the ligand, has been proven capable of spontane-ous photon emission.

Abstract

A novel thorium (IV) MOF, Th(2,6-naphtalenedicarboxylate)2, has been synthesized via solvothermal reaction of thorium nitrate and 2,6-naphtalendicarboxilyc acid. This compound shows a new structural arrangement with an interesting to-pology and an excellent thermal resistance, as the framework is stable in air up to 450 °C. Most notably this MOF, combin-ing the radioactivity of its metal center and the scintillation property of the ligand, has been proven capable of spontane-ous photon emission.
