Metal organic frameworks, or MOFs, have a strength over other classes of materials in which the constituents of the frameworks may be chosen among the vast range of organic ligands and metals, and such combination leads to nearly infinite possibility of novel frameworks. This freedom of choices expands when the variety of synthesis methods for MOFs is considered. Ionothermal synthesis, which makes use of ionic liquids for both the purpose of solvent and template, is a relatively recently introduced method that best exercises such potential on its own [1], along with many advantages like safety, which is associated with the low vapour pressure of ionic liquids [2], thermal stability [3], and safety in environmental means relative to its organic predecessors [4]. The cation and anion that comprises the ionic solvent used in the method may be easily substituted with their close chemical relatives, chloride with another halide for example, and finely tune the reaction environment.
