Abstract

Zinc(II) nitrate reacts with different ratios of 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (H(2)bdc) and 2-halo-1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (H(2)bdc-X, X = Br or I) to give [Zn4O(bdc)(3-x)(bdc-X)(x)], in which preferential incorporation of bdc is observed. The selective incorporation is related to crystal growth rates, and the proportion of incorporated bdc-X rises with increasing reaction time.
