  1. Several MOFs are evaluated as adsorbents of anthropogenic N2O emissions, the third most abundant greenhouse gas, through complimentary experimental and DFT analysis. N2O activation in M2(dobdc) MOFs is also studied.

  2. Abstract

    Metal‐organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous, crystalline materials constructed from organic linkers and inorganic nodes with myriad potential applications in chemical separations, catalysis, and drug delivery. A major barrier to the application of MOFs is their poor scalability, as most frameworks are prepared under highly dilute solvothermal conditions using toxic organic solvents. Herein, we demonstrate that combining a range of linkers with low‐melting metal halide (hydrate) salts leads directly to high‐quality MOFs without added solvent. Frameworks prepared under these ionothermal conditions possess porosities comparable to those prepared under traditional solvothermal conditions. In addition, we report the ionothermal syntheses of two frameworks that cannot be prepared directly under solvothermal conditions. Overall, the user‐friendly method reported herein should be broadly applicable to the discovery and synthesis of stable metal‐organic materials.
