Rare-earth (RE) analogues of UiO-66 with non-functionalised 1,4-benzenedicarboxylate linkers are synthesised for the first time, and a series of synthetic approaches is provided to troubleshoot the synthesis. RE-UiO-66 analogues are fully characterised, and demonstrate a high degree of crystallinity, high surface area and thermal stability, consistent with the UiO-66 archetype.
