Abstract The synthesis of new functionally diverse alkenyl-derived Cr-MIL-101s (MIL=material of Institute Lavoisier) was realized by a novel and convenient postsynthetic modification (PSM) protocol by means of the carbon-carbon bond-forming Mizoroki-Heck reaction. The new PSM protocol demonstrates a broad scope of substrates with excellent tolerance of functionality under mild reaction conditions. Moreover, a new metal-organic framework (MOF) that bears both alkenyl and thiol side chains prepared by means of the tandem PSM method has shown excellent adsorbent ability in removing mercury ions from water. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
