Molecular Iridium Complexes in Metal-Organic Frameworks Catalyze CO2 Hydrogenation via Concerted Proton and Hydride Transfer.


Molecular iridium catalysts immobilized in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) were positioned in the condensing chamber of a Soxhlet extractor for efficient CO2 hydrogenation. Droplets of hot water seeped through the MOF catalyst to create dynamic gas/liquid interfaces which maximize the contact of CO2, H2, H2O, and the catalyst to achieve a high turnover… (More)
