A vanadium-based metal–organic framework (COMOC-3) has been synthesized and fully characterized. It crystallizes in the monoclinic system with the space group C2/c (no. 15). This closed MIL-69 analogue shows excellent thermal stability and good catalytic performance in the liquid-phase oxidation of cyclohexene. The catalyst can be regenerated and reused without significant loss of activity.
