Crystal engineering: The synthesis of the known compounds MIL-100(Fe) and MIL-45(Fe) is characterized by spectroscopy. The products are obtained under identical conditions by varying the solvent from pure water to a mixture of water and acetone. The starting solution, the gel, and the final reaction product were characterized by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (see picture).
