Shields up! Post-synthetic modification of the secondary building units in the metal-organic framework UiO-66 (Zr6O4(OH)4(O2CR)12) by dehydration and subsequent grafting of LiOtBu yields a solid Li(+) electrolyte with a conductivity of 1.8×10(-5) S cm(-1) at 293 K. As the grafting leads to screening of the anionic charge, the activation energy for ionic(More)
Molecules exhibiting bistability have been proposed as elementary binary units (bits) for information storage, potentially enabling fast and efficient computing. In particular, transition metal complexes can display magnetic bistability via either spin-crossover or single-molecule magnet behavior. We now show that the octahedral iron(II) complexes in the(More)
A three-dimensional network solid composed of Fe(III) centers and paramagnetic semiquinoid linkers, (NBu4)2Fe(III)2(dhbq)3 (dhbq(2-/3-) = 2,5-dioxidobenzoquinone/1,2-dioxido-4,5-semiquinone), is shown to exhibit a conductivity of 0.16 ± 0.01 S/cm at 298 K, one of the highest values yet observed for a metal-organic framework (MOF). The origin of this(More)
A new family of solid polymer electrolytes based upon anionic tetrakis(phenyl)borate tetrahedral nodes and linear bis-alkyne linkers is reported. Sonogashira polymerizations using tetrakis(4-iodophenyl)borate, tetrakis(4-iodo-2,3,5,6-tetrafluorophenyl)borate and tetrakis(4-bromo-2,3,5,6-tetrafluorophenyl)borate delivered highly cross-linked polymer networks(More)
Page 13596. It has come to our attention that three Fe-57 Mössbauer spectra in Figure 3 were fitted with the incorrect peak nesting. The spectra shown in Figure 3c for Fe2(dobpdc)(BF4)x (x = 0.98 and x = 1.86) have been updated in the corrected version of Figure 3 provided here. Table S9 in the Supporting Information has also been updated with the correct(More)
A redox-active metal-organic framework, Fe2(dobpdc) (dobpdc(4-) = 4,4'-dioxidobiphenyl-3,3'-dicarboxylate), is shown to undergo a topotactic oxidative insertion reaction with a variety of weakly coordinating anions, including BF4(-) and PF6(-). The reaction results in just a minor lattice contraction, and a broad intervalence charge-transfer band emerges,(More)
