Abstract

Amine modified Zr6-based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) were synthesized through solvent-assisted linker incorporation (SALI) and utilized as single-component heterogeneous catalysts for the hydrolysis of organophosphorous compounds under solely aqueous conditions at room temperature. These materials display unprecidentedly fast catalytic hydrolysis for dimethyl p-nitrophenyl phosphate (DMNP) and nerve agent VX without the use of a buffered solution.
