This study explores modifications in the process of synthesis of a metal-organic framework known as MIL-101(Cr), formed by chromium(III) trinuclear clusters linked by terephthalate bridges. Through the use of reaction media containing a mixture of components (linkers or metals), we aimed the incorporation of different components in materials presenting MIL-101(Cr) structure. The products obtained from this approach were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, where we could observe that materials isoreticular to MIL-101(Cr) were formed, depending on the composition of reaction medium. From infrared and ultraviolet and visible spectroscopies, the incorporation of the different components in the structures was confirmed. For the materials containing different linkers, we observed incorporation degrees up to 20% for one of the substituted linkers and these materials presented specific surface areas in the order of 2300 mg. For the systems containing different metals, we obtained incorporation degrees up to 17%. Moreover, some results show that iron centers are homogeneously distributed over the structures. In conclusion, we could show that this synthetic approach was very simple and efficient for the formation of novel materials that are isoreticular to MIL-101(Cr), but presenting surfaces with diverse characteristics and reactivity.
