Two three-dimensional (3-D) MOFs, [(C2H5)4N)]3[H3O]2[Cd6Br(H2-DHBDC)8(DMF)4] (1; H4-DHBDC=2,5-dihydroxy-1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid, DMF=N,N-dimethylformamide) and [(CH3)2NH2]2[Cd3(H2-DHBDC)4(DMF)2]·2DMF(2), are prepared from the self-assembly reactions between Cd(CH3COO)2 and H4-DHBDC, respectively. Both anionic frameworks consist of linear trinuclear Cd units (e.g., 1: [Cd3BrO2(CO2)7] and [Cd3O2(CO2)8]; 2: [Cd3O2(CO2)8]) linked by the H2-DHBDC ligands. The photoluminescent properties of compound 1 are tunable through cation-exchange with different metal ions. The results demonstrated an effective ion-exchange approach toward the functional modification of MOF materials.
