Finding new adsorbents for the desulfurization of flue gases is a challenging task but is of current interest, as even low SO emissions impair the environment and health. Four Zr- and eight Al-MOFs (Zr-Fum, DUT-67(Zr), NU-1000, MOF-808, Al-Fum, MIL-53(Al), NH-MIL-53(Al), MIL-53(tdc)(Al), CAU-10-H, MIL-96(Al), MIL-100(Al), NH-MIL-101(Al)) were examined toward their SO sorption capability. Pore sizes in the range of about 4-8 Å are optimal for SO uptake in the low-pressure range (up to 0.1 bar). Pore widths that are only slightly larger than the kinetic diameter of 4.1 Å of the SO molecules allow for multi-side-dispersive interactions, which translate into high affinity at low pressure. Frameworks NH-MIL-53(Al) and NH-MIL-101(Al) with an NH-group at the linker tend to show enhanced SO affinity. Moreover, from single-gas adsorption isotherms, ideal adsorbed solution theory (IAST) selectivities toward binary SO/CO gas mixtures were determined with selectivity values between 35 and 53 at a molar fraction of 0.01 SO (10.000 ppm) and 1 bar for the frameworks Zr-Fum, MOF-808, NH-MIL-53(Al), and Al-Fum. Stability tests with exposure to dry SO during ≤10 h and humid SO during 5 h showed full retention of crystallinity and porosity for Zr-Fum and DUT-67(Zr). However, NU-1000, MOF-808, Al-Fum, MIL-53(tdc), CAU-10-H, and MIL-100(Al) exhibited ≥50-90% retained Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET)-surface area and pore volume; while NH-MIL-100(Al) and MIL-96(Al) demonstrated a major loss of porosity under dry SO and MIL-53(Al) and NH-MIL-53(Al) under humid SO. SO binding sites were revealed by density functional theory (DFT) simulation calculations with adsorption energies of -40 to -50 kJ·mol for Zr-Fum and Al-Fum and even above -50 kJ·mol for NH-MIL-53(Al), in agreement with the isosteric heat of adsorption near zero coverage (Δ). The predominant, highest binding energy noncovalent binding modes in both Zr-Fum and Al-Fum feature μ-OH···OSO hydrogen bonding interactions. The small pores of Al-Fum allow the interaction of two μ-OH bridges from opposite pore walls with the same SO molecule via OH···OSO···HO hydrogen bonds. For NH-MIL-53(Al), the DFT high-energy binding sites involve NH···OS together with the also present Al-μ-OH···OS hydrogen bonding interactions and C-π···SO, N···SO interactions.

Under hydrothermal conditions, we have successfully synthesized six isostructural lanthanide coordination polymers, [LnL(HO)]·1.75HO (1-6; Ln = Eu, La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd), by the reaction of 5-methyl-1-(4-carboxylphenyl)-1 H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carboxylic acid (HL) and Ln(NO)·6HO. Structural analysis shows that polymers 1-6 show novel three-dimensional supramolecular network structures. The luminescent properties for polymer 1 have been investigated at room temperature. The results have shown that polymer 1 can be used as a chemical sensor for multifunctional testing such as UO, Fe ion detection, and small organic molecule detection because of its strong fluorescence properties. In particular, polymer 1 exhibits extremely high selectivity and sensitivity for the detection of Fe ions. In addition, white-light emission is achieved through a reasonable tuning proportion by mixing Gd and Eu.
