Iodine functionalized variants of DUT-5 (Al) and UiO-67 (Zr) were prepared as expanded-pore analogues of MIL-53 (Al) and UiO-67 (Zr). They were prepared using a combination of multivariate and isorecticular expansion strategies. Multivariate MOFs with a 25% iodine-containing linker was chosen to achieve an ideal balance between a high density of catalytic sites and sufficient space for efficient diffusion. Changes to the oxidation potential of the catalyst as a result of the pore-expansion…

Nanoconfinement and mass transport in metal-organic frameworks.

The major factors that govern the mass transport of molecules through MOFs at both the intracrystalline and intercrystalline scale are discussed; an overview of the experimental and computational methods used to measure guest diffusivity within MOFs are provided; and the relevance of mass transfer in the applications of MOFs in electrochemical systems, separations, and heterogeneous catalysis is highlighted.

When metal-organic framework mediated smart drug delivery meets gastrointestinal cancers.

The present review focuses on the use of nanoscale MOFs (Nano-MOFs) as carriers for drug delivery and imaging purposes and the current state-of-the-art of interdisciplinary research and novel developments into MOF-based gastrointestinal cancer therapy.



Make room for iodine: systematic pore tuning of multivariate metal–organic frameworks for the catalytic oxidation of hydroquinones using hypervalent iodine

Iodine sites have been incorporated in both MIL-53 (Al) and UiO-66 (Zr) MOFs. A multivariate approach was used to increase the accessible area within the pores to allow for the catalytic oxidation of

Improved Catalytic Activity and Stability of a Palladium Pincer Complex by Incorporation into a Metal-Organic Framework.

1-TFA is an active and recyclable catalyst for transfer hydrogenation of benzaldehydes using formic acid as a hydrogen source and the homogeneous analogue (t)Bu(L-PdTFA) is an ineffective catalyst owing to decomposition under the catalytic conditions, highlighting the beneficial effects of immobilization.

H2 storage in isostructural UiO-67 and UiO-66 MOFs.

The first complete structural, vibrational and electronic characterization of the isostructural UiO-67 material is reported, obtained using the longer 4,4'-biphenyl-dicarboxylate (BPDC) linker by combining laboratory XRPD, Zr K-edge EXAFS, TGA, FTIR, and UV-Vis studies.

Hypervalent iodine reagents as a new entrance to organocatalysts.

The historical background and the efforts made to realize the catalytic utilization of hypervalent iodine reagents are highlighted, especially with focus on iodine(iii).

A series of isoreticular chiral metal-organic frameworks as a tunable platform for asymmetric catalysis.

This work demonstrates the systematic design of eight mesoporous chiral metal-organic frameworks, with the framework formula [LCu2(solvent)2] (where L is a chiral tetracarboxylate ligand derived from 1,1'-bi-2-naphthol), that have the same structures but channels of different sizes.

Toward "metalloMOFzymes": Metal-Organic Frameworks with Single-Site Metal Catalysts for Small-Molecule Transformations.

Efforts to create single-site catalytic metal centers appended to the organic ligand struts of MOFs will be discussed, and the introduction of second-sphere interactions as a possible route to enhancing the activity of these metal centers is reported.

Catalysis and photocatalysis by metal organic frameworks.

The present review summarizes the current state of the art in the use of MOFs as solid catalysts according to the type of site, making special emphasis on the more recent strategies to increase the population of these active sites and tuning their activity, either by adapting the synthesis conditions or by post-synthetic modification.

Increasing the Stability of Metal-Organic Frameworks

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a new category of advanced porous materials undergoing study by many researchers for their vast variety of both novel structures and potentially useful properties
