The functionalised metal-organic framework MIL-101(Cr)-NH(2), containing 2-aminobenzene-1,4-dicarboxylate as the linker, has been synthesised. A new tandem post-synthetic modification strategy involving diazotisation as the first step has been developed and used to introduce halo- and azo dye-functional groups into the pores.
