Isostructural metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been prepared from a variety of metal-oxide clusters, including transition metals, lanthanides, and actinides. Experimental and calculated shifts in O-H stretching frequencies for hydroxyl groups associated with the metal-oxide nodes reveal varying electronic properties for these units, thereby offering opportunities to tune support effects for other materials deposited onto these nodes.
