Abstract

original image

It all makes sense: A rationally developed europium metal–organic framework incorporating immobilized Lewis basic pyridyl sites oriented towards the center of one-dimensional channels is a rare example of a luminescent porous MOF. By comparison of the luminescence intensity quenching effects of various incorporated Lewis acidic metal cations, the MOF exhibits sensor capability.
