SUN-KOU, María del Rosario et al. Synthesis, characterization and application of metal organic frameworks in the adsorption of dimethylamine. Rev. Soc. Quím. Perú [online]. 2014, vol.80, n.2, pp.85-96. ISSN 1810-634X.

This study investigated the removal of dimethylamine (DMA) by an adsorption mechanism using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). The synthesis of the MOFs was performed by solvothermal methods. The characterization of the MOF obtained was made by attenuated total reflectance spectroscopy (ATR), proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-NMR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The XRD diffractograms allowed to identify the structure of MOF as Dashkovaite, which has the molecular formula Mg(HCOO)2.2H2O; while the ATR studies revealed the presence of carbonyl group as most important functional group in the MOF structure. The morphological analysis showed that the MOF crystalline particles had a hexagonal shape, formed from filaments of around 7,5-8 microns in length. Adsorption experiments showed that the MOF had a high adsorption capacity of DMA (qe= 307,96 mg.g-1). The kinetic data were fitted to the pseudo second order equation and the Elovich equation, while the adsorption isotherm was fitted to the Temkin equation and the Dubinin - Radushkevich equation, processes related to chemisorptions preferably on a heterogeneous surface.

Keywords : Metal-organic frameworks; MOF; dimethylamine; adsorption.
