A nanoporous zinc gallophosphate framework, NTHU-4, possessing 14-ring channels, disordered rims, and two luminant analogues, NTHU-4Y and NTHU-4W, has been synthesized and characterized; NTHU-4Y is an intrinsic yellow phosphor, while NTHU-4W is a white phosphor. The unique tetrahedral framework can be excited by wavelengths longer than 254 nm to give intense yellow-to-white luminescence. Subtle changes in disorderliness were observed to be related to the distinct photoluminescence property.
