Reactions of free-base tetra(4-carboxyphenyl)porphyrin with lanthanide ions as Pr3+, Dy3+, and Nd3+ led to open metal-organic framework solids sustained by polynuclear metal-carboxylate clusters. Their three-dimensional structures are characterized by channel voids accessible to other guest components (e.g., water, small organics). Crystalline solids obtained by the hydrothermal synthesis with Dy3+ and Nd 3+ reagents reveal remarkable stability and represent the first example of hybrid porphyrin-lanthanide single framework architectures.
