A serial of aminophosphonates zirconium with the different arm lengths of –(CH2)n– organic chains (n=2–6) was synthesized for the first time. These compounds are characterized by FT-IR, SEM, TEM, TG and nitrogen adsorption-desorption. And based on the experimental data, these materials not only have layer structure mesoporous and good thermal stability such as zirconium phosphate, but also can be adjusted the layer distance, pore size and pore volume. So aminophosphonates zirconium posses special excellent properties and will have potential prospect applications.
