Coordination adaptable networks: zirconium(IV) carboxylates.

Abstract : Vitrimers are 3D “covalent adaptable networks” (CANs) with flow properties thanks to thermally activated associative exchange reactions. The present contribution introduces coordination adaptable networks, or CooANs, that are topologically related to metal-organic frameworks with octahedral Zr 6 clusters as secondary building units in a carboxylic acid-functionalized acrylate-methacrylate copolymer matrix. A series of Zr-CooAN-x materials (x = percent of Zr 6 loading relative to maximum capacity) was synthesized with x = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50 and 100. The mechanical and rheological investigations demonstrate vitrimer-like properties for x up to 50, the crosslink migration being ensured by carboxylate ligand exchange, with relaxation becoming slower as the Zr 6 content is increased. The flow activation energy of Zr-CooAN-10 is 92.9 ± 3.6 kJ mol -1 . Rapid (30 min) hot-press reshaping occurs at temperatures in the 50-100 °C range under a 3-ton pressure and does not significantly alter the material properties.
