MOF-supported selective ethylene dimerization single-site catalysts through one-pot postsynthetic modification.


The one-pot postfunctionalization allows anchoring a molecular nickel complex into a mesoporous metal-organic framework (Ni@(Fe)MIL-101). It is generating a very active and reusable catalyst for the liquid-phase ethylene dimerization to selectively form 1-butene. Higher selectivity for 1-butene is found using the Ni@(Fe)MIL-101 catalyst than reported for… (More)
