Abstract

original image

The computer-generated structural model on the right clearly shows the interlayer microporosity (Vmicrop. = 0.12cm3g−1) of the covalently pillared γ-zirconium phosphate -diphosphonate. Thus, this type of compound could be of interest as a molecular sieve or for shape-selective catalysis. The pillaring was achieved by a simple topotactic reaction.
